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.

120 foxes have taken part in year’s series making us the best represented club by a long way. After Race 4 both our men’s and ladies senior teams are top of the First division with a perfect record. We are also performing strongly in both the Men’s and Ladies Vets Leagues and we are currently in 1st place the Colin Morath Trophy which is awarded to the ‘most improved club’. Take a look here at the league tables. For mens and ladies individual results please have a look at the PECO website by following the links below.



The final race of the season PECO Race 5 is at Temple Newsam on the 11th February. It would be fantastic to see a huge turnout from the Blue Army of runners and supporters, to put the icing on the cake for what has been an excellent season.

Parking for this event is likely to be extremely limited so we will once again be encouraging our members to take advantage by signing up to to the ‘RR Car Share’.which departs from the Old Tram Park car park on Princes Avenue at 9.40am.

Further information on this Sunday’s race can be found here in our Facebook Event and also on the PECO website.
