Welcome to our Cross Country Page
Telford Harriers have taken part in off road events since the
Club's early days. We originally competed in the North Wales Cross Country
League before applying to join the
Birmingham & District League in 1997 and the
North Staffordshire League a couple of years
later. We also have a team in the Midland Ladies League and have completed in
the Midland and National Cross Country Championships on a number of occasions.
The Club Mens' Cross Country Secretary is Dave Coley; the Ladies'
