PECO XC League

PECO is a series of five cross country races that run from November to March each year. It is without doubt one of the highlights of the racing year and suitable for all abilities of runner within the club.

Last season over 120 RRs took part making us the best represented club in the league and contributing to a fantastic season for the club. Both our Men’s and Ladies senior teams were crowned champions of the First Division with a perfect record and gained promotion to the Premier League. The RR Men’s and Ladies Vets Teams also had brilliant seasons with the men securing promotion to the Premier League and the ladies finishing 3rd in their debut season in the Premier League.

The success RRs enjoyed last season was down to a real team effort from our excellent runners, supporters and volunteers within the club and as a result we were awarded the prestigious Colin Morath Trophy for the ‘most improved club’.

Thanks to everyone in the club who made this happen and we look forward to the new season starting in November 2018!

The final league tables, Colin Morath Standings and the Men’s and and Ladies individual results from last season can all be viewed on the PECO website.

Finally if you’d like to take part in PECO 2018/19 you will need to run in club colours. To buy Roundhay Runners kit then please order via the Kit Order Form on the RR website.
