These are just turn up and run events. You will be given a number (by me or someone else from the club who will usually be with our flag/tent) for the whole series when you first register. The number will be free (apart from any subsequent replacements) to fully paid New Marske Members. There are U11 races at each meeting. U 11 runners need to get a number  and is used for the whole series. All runners must wear their number on their front and wear a NMH vest. The 1st race is the U11s at 1pm (check though as it may be a bit earlier at some venues) and the senior mens is last usually starting at 2.15pm

These events need to be entered in advance and are open to U13 upwards. I have given the deadlines above so please let me know by these dates if you would like to enter. The club will pay for these entries but you are expected to refund the fee if you do not run for any reason.


Please support the club by entering as many events as possible. All these events are great fun whatever your level and experience as there is always someone to run against who is roughly your level and it is always good to run at different venues against new people. These bigger events are a great experience so please give them serious thought. The North Easterns are a great introduction to bigger races. Please try and enter these as we have has disappointingly few runners recently Those that have competed have been very successful and there are team prizes as well.


Your age category for cross country (which you run in until the end of the cross country season) is determined by your age on 1st September this year. You can however start running in the U13 race as soon as you turn 11.


New Marske have a great record in the relays so we have a lot to live up to but it would also be great to get more teams out so please let me know if you want to compete. Team sizes are usually 3 but in some cases 6 so I need to be given plenty of notice to organise teams and need to know about the Thirsk relays very quickly. You will always get a timed result even if we have an incomplete team. You are not running for very long in them and they can be very exciting and it is great to be part of a team.


If you want to enter these events please let me know in good time preferably by email. I will always acknowledge your requests. If you don’t get a response I haven’t received your communication


ALL THESE DATES  ARE PROVISIONAL SO PLEASE CHECK THE WEBSITE NEARER THE TIME TO CONFIRM DETAILS. The club website is www.new-marske-harriers.co.uk. If you need any more info please get in touch. Otherwise I look forward to seeing you all out on the courses.
