Season Preview 2017/18 (11/10/2017)

There is less than a month to go before the start of the 2017/18 cross country season for athletes in the Birmingham & District Invitation Cross Country League. This year represents the start of our 93rd season since our formation in 1925. The League currently comprises three divisions and there is a total of 53 clubs registered. Division 1 has 16 clubs, Division 2 has 18 and Division 3 has 19.

List of affiliated clubs

It is important that all clubs who have kindly offered to promote races through the season provide clear & accurate details of their venue & course in good time that it can be circulated and also carried here on the League website.

The first fixtures often throw up many "challenges" for the Divisional Secretaries so please make sure you provide accurate details of all runners taking part. Make sure the names are correctly spelt, clearly readible and also identify junior athletes where applicable.

Please make sure that you look at what officials your club are due to provide and at which races. Remember there are penalities for not supplying them!

A reminder also that safety pins are not provided by the League so athletes and team managers should make sure they have sufficient stocks for the season and bring them to the races.

Finally we wish all athletes, clubs, officials, officers and supporters of the League an enjoyable season.
