Cross Discipline Challenge


The Cross Discipline Challenge promotes and celebrates participation in all four of the disciplines that the club is active in. It aims to encourage members to branch out and compete in areas outside of their normal preferred discipline and to support the club through volunteering.

Two parallel challenges have been devised for senior and junior members respectively; the junior challenge has been adapted to suit the races available to younger athletes.


The rules for the cancelled 2020 Cross Discipline Challenge are given below. There is no 2021 Cross Discipline Challenge. The rules will be reviewed and updated accordingly the next time the Challenge is due to take place.

When you complete the challenge please just email me detailing which events you have competed in and what volunteering you have done.

You must email your claim as it isn’t possible to identify who has completed the challenge in any other way.

Members who successfully complete the challenge will receive the respect and admiration of their club mates. The club will also give a small prize to each successful member.

Presentations will be made at the AGM in March.
