Heanor Running Club competes in two cross country leagues during the winter months – the North Midlands Cross Country League and the Derby Runner XC League.
The juniors also compete in the Derbyshire XC Mini League.

The Derby Runner XC season involves five races spread from October until February and consist of courses of around 5 miles in length.
Races take place at 11:00am on Sunday mornings.

Scoring for the league is as follows:

  • Seven Men to count for the Men’s Team
  • Four women to count for the Women’s Team
  • Mixed Team based on combining the Men’s and Women’s scores

Age category prizes are based on completing four races for all age categories and the minimum age to compete is 14.

All eligible members are welcome to come and run, and regardless of scoring or not, every one who runs is contributing to the overall team.
