Every season the club enters two cross country leagues. The Chiltern league and the Oxon league. These leagues and the races within them are open to ALL paid up Bicester AC members. Any one can take part even if you don’t train with the club on a Sunday morning.

All information on both leagues can be found on our club website, www.bicesterac.co.uk, as well as the league websites, www.chilternccl.co.uk and www.oxonxc.org.uk.

I will also send out information regarding each race and the venues via Teamer in the weeks leading up to each race.

All entries to these leagues have to be done through myself and not on an individual basis.

If you want to take part all we ask is that you feel comfortable running the distances listed depending on your age group, you wear a club vest, wear sutable footwear and don’t mind getting a bit muddy!!!

I will endeavour to be at each event and I ask that all athletes are there at least 45 minutes before their race so they can be allocated numbers, look at the courses and warm up. We provide a tent and you find us by loking for the club flag. There will be a £1 match fee per event.

One point to note is the Oxon league is open to all registered club members age 8 on race day and above. The Chiltern league is open to registered members in school year 5/6 and above.

If you are interested in these events please let Emma Gould know ASAP so entries can be sorted.

On the day entries cannot be accepted, it is best to express your interest and get entered even if you don’t do all the races.

Would be great to see lots of you taking part.


We know it’s way too early to mention the ‘C’ word but when the ‘C’ word(s) are Cross Country it’s never too early to plan

On Sunday 7th January (so not long after the other ‘C’ word) Bicester AC and Banbury Harriers have been asked to host this seasons Oxfordshire cross country championships at Bo Peep near Abberbury.

Last year we did a fixture in December for the first time so to be asked to do the counties in only our second year is a real honour and it’s also a major fundraiser for the club.

So, please save the date as we will be after lots of willing volunteers. It’s a fantastic morning and you get to cheer the children on too.
