Winners South Essex XC League Div 1 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016, 2018

Essex U17 Men's XC Champions 2013-2014

We compete in two Cross Country Leagues:

Essex Cross Country League (Saturday) and the South Essex Cross Country League (Sunday)

All members are invited to come and race for the club in both leagues and enjoy racing throughout the winter season. You will compete not for times but for positions racing against members of other clubs in the leagues. You'll also be rewarded for both performance and attendance in our own XC points League (see below).



A list of the events will be published soon.





Aside from having a chance of being in a winning team for Benfleet, with the new points competition you also stand a chance of winning an award for your individual efforts ranked against your clubmates.

How it works:
BRC Competes in two cross country leagues over the season.
On Sunday’s there will be 5 South Essex XC races.
On Saturday’s there will be 5 Essex League XC races.
There will also be a one off Essex Championship race.
You will score points by running in any of these 11 races.

Points will awarded as follows:
Men’s table: 1st Benfleet man 20pts, 2nd 19pts, 3rd 18pts, and so on down to 1pt for 20th and below, everyone that turns up will score at least 1pt. (in reality you will most likely score more!)
Women’s table: As above however the 1st will get 12pts, 2nd 11pts etc, down to 1for 12th and below. Again everyone that races will score.

The winning man and woman will have the most points at the end of the season and will be crowned our cross country points champions.
There will also be awards for 2nd/3rd (silver) and 4th/5th/6th/7th (Bronze) positions.
You will be able to keep track of your progress via updated league tables after every race, online and at the club.

Notes: Points will not be awarded for the relays or Vets races, members who marshal our own race will score points for the race equivalent to their best score so far in the Sunday league. If they haven’t yet run they will score double pts at the next Sunday race (only).
In the event of a tie, positions will be decided on participation, the runner having completed the most events will win. If still level the runner having finished highest in the last race of the season will take precedence, if neither races the last race both participated in shall replace “last race”.
