2020 Northern Cross Country Championships

Northern Athletics Cross Country Championships 2020

In Running by Stuart Whitman

Set in the grounds of The Camp Hill Estate, Bedale the 2020 Northern XC Championships proved a tough test after persistent rainfall in the preceding weeks. The woods at the far end of the course in the woods ensured ‘proper’ English cross country conditions with thick mud ankle deep and plenty of lost spikes. Sponsor Start Fitness should have had a increase in sales the following week!
