Event Description

Northern Police 10K Trail Series 2023

After a successful three trail races held in 2021 and 2022 we are staging another five10K Trail Races in the Summer of 2023. These will be staged similar to our Northern Police XC races but provide a mid-summer fixture to bridge the gap between the Autumn/Winter season. 

They all start at 1.30pm on either a Tuesday or Wednesday and 7pm Friday. This mid-week time is best suited to Police Staff copying the same NPCCL model that has been successful for countless years.  

These trail races are very much for fun and not intended to be too competitive. However, this season we will be awarding prizes for placed finishers at the end of each race and final race. There are no medals but we hope to provide some post-race light refresments after each race.

New This Season

We are creating a Northern Police Trail and Xc Buff Scarf Memento that you can opt to buy if you are planning enter all five events. A small additional fee is required to supplement the overall cost.
