Cross Discipline Challenge


The Cross Discipline Challenge promotes and celebrates participation in all the disciplines within which the club is active. 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. The wider aim is that members meet more different clubmates and experience more of what the club offers.

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.


In order to complete the challenge, members must undertake the following:
