Recent Races

On Thursday 17th January 2019, the RAF hosted the annual cross-country representative fixture at RAF Halton, Buckinghamshire. 

The course was slightly different to previous years, zig zagging across and bordering the playing fields and not taking in the trails through the woods.  The weather was sunny and dry but there was a bitterly cold wind!

The going under foot was good and firm. The women’s race was run over two large laps a distance of approximately 7km and the men’s race over 3 large laps a distance of approximately 10.5 km

The Snowdonia Seven is undoubtedly the most enjoyable (and challenging) event in the police sporting calendar.

It has been held annually since 1974 and still embodies the original ethos of developing ‘Fitness, Teamwork and Endurance’.  To complete the challenge, teams (of 4) must travel 22 miles, over 7 peaks (with a total ascent of almost 8000’) – in under 10 hours, carrying the safety kit detailed in the rules.

Confirmed date for the 2019 event is Saturday 6th of July

The league started in the late 1970's and for over 40 years has attracted runners from most of the police forces across the north of England.

The league now stages 12 fixtures each season that starts in late September through to late March. Each fixture attracts between 40 and 80 runners.

In recent years the league has gone from strength to strength, despite the pressures of securing time-off from police duties. We have recently added an 11th and 12th fixture that add a better chance to attend the six required fixtures!
