The Xmas XC 5.2 Mile race will take place on Sunday 10th December 2017, 11am at the Hurst Community College, Brimpton Road, Baughurst, Tadley, Hampshire, RG26 5NL
Now in its 28th year this event has been going from strength to strength in recent years.
The course entirely off road on footpaths, fields and meadows, taking in some varied terrain and a few ups and downs!
The Race HQ is at the Hurst Leisure Centre, where there are ample parking, changing and shower facilities and catering.
Please note that the start/finish is 10 minutes walk/jog from Race HQ. Whilst this is now closer to Race HQ than in previous years we still ask you allow sufficient time to get there.

We think the race is great, but don’t take our word for it. Here are just a few of comments from the Runners World feedback pages.
“This is my fourth year (I am aiming for six to get a set of mugs) and my favourite by far. The mud down the field nearly took my shoes off but at least when I went through the streams I got a good clean. Great run, great facilities and great organisation. See you next year” D Elliott
“An excellent race again. Why anyone wants to spend a fortune on these quasi corporate XC races when Tadley Runners put on such a great race is beyond me…..” Piers
