The Oxford XC Legue has introduced new requirements this year regarding competitior registration. In previous years a team could add unregistered athletes on the day of a race by allocating a nuber and advising the league accordingly.
This year, with the exception of the under 11s, all runners need to be registered with the League by the Sunday prior to the day of the race (by Sunday 30th October for the first race). Would all athletes who wish to compete in the league this year please advise Steve Connolly through this link as soon as possible.
Any athlete who is not registered with the LEague under these new regulations will not be able to compete on the day
In addtion England Athletics will be carrying out random checks on the league results to ensure that all runners are affiliated with EA. Please also contact Steve Connolly if have registered to run but you think that you are not affiliated to EA.

Last Sunday, the 25th September, saw the Southern Area road relays at Bedford which saw us enter teams at under 13 & under15 girls, under 13 boys and under 17 boys along with a senior men's team. This is the highest number of teams we have entered for many years and reflects the progress being made especially by our junior teams.
Whilst we didn't manage to pick up any trophies or qualify for the National finals, every team acquitted themselves very well and were well placed in every age group.
