Clarke Gardens Cross Country

Past Results


The Clarke Gardens race is hosted by Penny Lane Striders, and is a pleasant run of nearly 5 miles through parkland. It is fairly flat, mostly on grass with one stretch through the woods which can be a bit muddy depending on the amount of rain beforehand. It is very suitable for newcomers, trail shoes or spikes are best, through road shoes will usually suffice but may be slippery underfoot. The course is great for spectators as well.

Refreshments are usually at the Cheshire Lines club which is about a mile away. Address is:

  • Southmead Rd
  • Liverpool
  • L19 5NB
