PECO XC League

PECO is a series of five cross country races that run from November to March each year. Points are scored for the club, based on finishing position – your individual time isn’t really all that relevant. The winner gets 1 point, 2nd place 2 points, and so on. Therefore, lowest aggregate score is sought.

PECO is definitely one of the highlights of the racing year and suitable for all abilities of runner within the club. They are the perfect way to build up fitness over the winter months, whilst also being great fun and highly rewarding. All members are encouraged to give it a go and will be cheered on by a large contingent of RR support. PECO really is a case of ‘the more the merrier’.

Even if you decide PECO isn’t for you, you can still be involved by coming along to support the RR ‘s at races or being part of the team of volunteers when we host the PECO event at Roundhay Park on the 7th January.

If you’d like to take part and race on behalf of RR then please click on the link below and complete the registration form. Entry for the PECO series is only £3 which you will need to transfer to the club account by the 5th November. You’ll then be provided with a race number, which stays with you for the whole series. For every PECO event you then take part in, it is only an additional £3.


To take part in PECO you will need to run in club colours. If you need to buy Roundhay Runners kit then please follow the link here to the online Kit Order Form.
