Sunday 7th will be a busy day – Santa and Cross Country Championships
Sunday 7th December sees Santa in the Woods as usual – the annual event organised by the Community Trust, but the Woods will be busy all day as we are a guest venue for a large cross country championship event as well. This is the first time we have hosted this particular event and so it is a learning experience for both us and the host organisers Tipton Harriers. As people enjoy the event we host in January (Inter schools) we hope they’ll enjoy this major event too. With over 800 runners competing there will be more cars than usual parking near the site, so you might like to time your walk to later in the day if you prefer a runner free park and easy parking. Otherwise come and enjoy the event and give them your support. Ages of participants range from 8-17 years and there will be eight races between 11am and 1.20pm
The West Midlands Young Athletes Cross Country League started in 1975. It has grown form just a few dozen athletes to hundreds of very competitive athletes representing 19 clubs from across Central England. The event at Warley Woods will be the 3rd Round of the League.
