Christmas Curry & Handicap Print
Sparkhill Harriers will be celebrating Christmas this year in our well-established and much-loved traditional manner... a curry and a run.


The Christmas Curry will be on Thursday 17th December: following a short track session we will be meeting up at the Red Lion in Shirley  at 8.30pm  before making the trek to the Shapla Indian Restaurant for 9-9.15pm.


The Christmas Handicap Run will be on the morning of Sunday 20th December at 11am in Fox Hollies Park, followed by tea and cakes and other unhealthy stuff as well as the draw for the lucky (?) recipient of our London Marathon place .
Please arrive at the clubhouse by 10.30am to be in good time for the start.
Make sure you put it in your diaries.

Midland & English Cross Country Relays Print
Two cross country events coming up.
Midland cross country relays Saturday 17 October at Bramshall Road Park, Uttoxeter 
The men & ladies run over 5km with both races starting at 2pm.  There are 4 to the men's team and 3 to the ladies' team.  We may enter as many teams as we like.
This is a really good introduction to cross country running and is an opportunity for us, as a club, to be at the same race location.

If you would like to run please confirm by email by close on 6 October.

English National cross country relays Saturday 31 October at Mansfield

Ladies 3km (3 to a team) at 2:05pm

Men 5km (4 to a team) at 2.40pm

This is a top class event when we as a club get the chance to run against the best cross country runners in England.

We usually enter two men's teams (but could enter more).  It has been some years since we last ran a ladies' team and this year it would be good for the ladies to return to the event (you are certainly good enough).

If you would like to run please confirm by email by close on 6 October.



British Masters XC relays, Long Eaton Print

for the last four or five years we have entered teams for the vets cross country relays.

This season, the relays are on Saturday 24th October at a new venue of West Park, long Eaton.

Each leg is 3k. The age group teams are:

W35 (3)
W45 (3)


If you could pass the details on and can you let me know if you are interested in running. Teams need to be entered by the first week in October.

If you've never run in these competitions before, there's nothing to fear, you won't be out of your depth by any means and if you ask those who have run in similar competitions they can confirm that you might surprise yourself. Other teams can often provide a couple of good runners but few clubs have got the strength in depth that Sparkhill has got.
Details can be found here .
