Event Description

Police Sport UK Cross Country ​Championships 2019Lacncon Logo

Welcome!! Lancashire Constabulary Sports Club are pleased to be hosting the 2019 Police Sport UK event on Wednesday 10 April.

The last time Lancashire hosted the PSUK Cross Country was back in 1991 at the Lancaster University!

Lancaster University is a great venue for the following key reasons:

  • Close proximity to Junction 33 M6 or West Coast Main line station
  • Accommodation is located in the Campus
  • The race course is within the Campus
  • The evening presentation, meal and function is also on Campus!

Race Course

Starts from in front of the new state of the art University Sports Centre. Each lap is 1.8 miles.

Ladies Race - 1pm - 5.4 miles - 3 laps 

Men's Race - 2pm - 7.2 miles - 4 laps

The course is very scenic, a mixture of grass and woodland paths located in the grounds of the University. - it is not too hilly but there are several steep but short climbs with a number of fast, flat sections. It is suited to spikes with no hard surfaces.


The number of entries we will accept is unlimited. However, there are limits on the presentation function and accommodation.

Entry Fee

The £15 race entry fee covers the cost of race numbers, prizes, results, post-race refreshments, event memento and other event running costs.

Event 'T' Shirt

We are producing a quality event 'T' shirt that is available to order at an additional cost of £4.00 payable at registration. This gives runners the option to buy or opt-out.

Parking, Changing and Showers

There is free parking on campus and hotel for all those stopping over.

Those not staying in accommodation may use the Sports Centre facilities to park, change and shower. Parking is free but you need to validate a short stay ticket to park.

Event Bookings - Entry/Accommodation and Presentation Dinner

We have decided to use 'Book It Zone' to manage all payments. This means that each competitor will be asked to book individually and pay one fee direct.

However, team managers may book on behalf of the whole team but he/she must ensure that:

1. Consent to their data being passed has been agreed;

2. The email address of the competitor is included so we can verify this and communicate direct with the runner.

There are several advantages to this on-line method:

  • Instant payment and entry confirmation.
  • Ensures all data is accurate and available to the event organiser.
  • Allows the organiser to easily comply with new GDPR legislation.
  • Increases the overall commitment to compete.

There is no booking fee added as this cost will be included in your overall entry fee or accommodation fee price. This booking fee is minimal and the benefits are great and ensure overall smooth running of the event.
