Arrowe Park Cross Country

Past Results


The Arrowe park cross country race is set in a country park set below Arrowe Park hospital.

It is mostly on grass and quite open, parts can be muddy depending on the recent weather and the whole course is on a slope. But in general it is a gentle introduction to Cross Country running.

Trail shoes or spikes are best, though road shoes are possible in dry conditions.

The course is shown below, there will bit 2 laps plus a small extra bit at the start to thin the runners out. This makes it a good race for spectators as well.
