Wrekenton cross country route and distances for 25th September 2021


Use the postcode NE9 6RZ for your Satnav. Two parking areas are available: the NHS Park & Ride opposite Cardinal Hulme School, and the empty land near the start area on Harebell Road. This is around 200m away from Cardinal Hulme School.

Do not park on Old Durham Road or in the estate near to the start area. Doing so can jeopardise future use of this site by the Harrier League. Where possible, please car share to reduce pressure on the car parks.


  • Do not attend if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or if the self-isolation rules apply to you.
  • Wear a mask where groups congregate, wash your hands and use hand gels regularly, take a couple of LFT tests this week prior to the race. NEHL ask that you complete your vaccinations if possible.
  • Wear your white vest, take your own safety pins and collect this season’s race number from the club tent prior
  • As well as the usual NEHL rules, a new rule applies from this season relating to spitting. Do not spit during the race or while warming up, this could lead to individual disqualification and loss of points for the club.
  • Listen to the marshalls and race officials on the day. The club captains are no strangers to the NEHL either, so ask Scott or Debbie any questions you may have.
  • Have a great race and enjoy the day out with the club!
