Don’t miss out on all the muddy fun stuffat local cross-country meets this winter. Add strength work to your training – plus hills and speed – to power through the puddles on your XC debut!

As the leaves turn to brown and the nights get longer, the autumn marathon season draws to a close and the crosscountry season is just getting started. Cross-country racing is the perfect way to keep yourself motivated to run during the winter months. And it’s a lot of fun too.

Cross-country races may be short when compared to many road races, but the distance is deceiving. The mud, hills and weather combine to make for a challenging race and pacing yourself over the terrain is hard work. But it’s precisely this challenge that makes it so exciting for many.

Running from October to February, the cross-country season takes place in the harshest months and the conditions vary widely from race to race. You may run the same course several times in your lifetime, but any rain, snow and wind will make it a different race each time. Sometimes rivers and fields flood, trees fall down and routes are diverted. But it’s the unpredictability of the races that’s part of the appeal.

About Women’s Running

Women’s Running is leaping into autumn with a new passion with the November issue. We uncover the best way to keep your running mojo fresh: pick a goal – any goal – and work towards it. From running a race to building strength, we unpick the best way to keep your feet on the path. We also embrace ultrarunning that anyone can do: slow ultrarunning! Cutting your speed is a filthy concept in other publications, but for us it’s a secret weapon in running further and longer than ever before. We talk to warrior Lowri Morgan who has a few ultramarathons under her belt, including the 350-mile Arctic Ultra (we didn’t ask how slow she ran, but she was the last person standing). Plus, we review all the latest shoes, the best running bras, jackets and reflective clothing for these shorter days. We also take a fond look at the incredible Flo-Jo: the passion, the fashion and the talent of a legendary runner.
