Varsity Cross Country 2019

Join us as we start the overall 2019 Varsity campaign between Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds with our 10th Annual Varsity Cross Country Races!

Some changes to note this year!! 

The women’s and men’s races are starting together in the morning at 11:00am to make the event more time efficient during the exam period and with both races being run over a 2 lap 6.4km course we hope that this will attract record numbers of runners of all standards from both Unis of course but also from the local clubs who have a history of supporting the event.

There are 2 varsity points up for grabs. The first 6 women and 12 men to finish from each University will count towards the two separate team event scores.

Please arrive an hour before your race to collect your number from the Beckett trackside pavilion.

In addition to this both Uni clubs are taking an equal role in the organisation – this means you can be a great help setting up the course and take down with a team of 5 from each Uni.

Student runners from their respective Universities will be pre-registered by their coaches Andy (LBU) or Greg (LUU). Please bring £3 on the day – all entries and generous donations (why not round it up to a fiver!) go straight to the nominated race charity Hope Pastures who will be bringing along one of their shetland ponies, Cloud.

All guest runners and local clubs are very very welcome indeed, all entries are taken on the day, just turn up with £3 to the Leeds Beckett track pavilion on Saturday 12th January and we will issue you a race number, it's that simple. Get involved!
