The second round of the Law Trust Cross-Country League takes place on Sunday 5th November, and is hosted by Western AC at QE2 High School in Peel.
The under-nine and U11 races use the school field only. The races for all ages from U13 upwards also use the school field, but then take the runners onto adjacent farmland which is undulating with some short sharp ups and downs. Each full lap takes the runners back round the school field.
Strictly no dogs are allowed on any part of the course. Spectators are asked to keep the course clear during the races.
