Running Events: Cross Country: Winter Cross Country Series

The Winter Cross Country Series is an event my son Ben enjoys greatly. Most of the venues are not too far away, they tend to be centred around Aberdeen though there is a foray south to Camperdown Country Park in Dundee and they are held from late November until mid February which means the chance of running through a snow covered landscape, very appealing to a twelve year old boy. It also tends to attract some stronger East District runners into the mix, some of whom Ben hasn't run against before. They are usually pretty well organised too last year Ben won the series in the under 13 category but he remains small of stature and most of his rivals and piers have started to mature and grow so this year he will undoubtedly find it harder until he too has a growth spurt and can redress the balance.
