Cross country races for anyone and everyone!  

Join us at York Sport Village for the first EvenSplits XC Festival

The XC Festival will offer a full programme of cross country races for Seniors and Juniors, including an equal choice of distances for men and women.

The races are open to anyone and everyone: you don’t need to be a club runner nor do you need to be an old hand. In fact, if you’ve never run cross country before, this could be the perfect place to start!

This cross country meeting is open to everyone who wants to race cross country regardless of whether they are a member of a running club or not. There are five distances across seven races and all are equally open to both men and women.
