Where will your running take you?
Pace your race – from middle distance to marathon

ROYAL SIGNALS CROSS COUNTRY
Underpinning Military Ethos
A great track-record
Royal Signals has a long, proud history of Cross Country running and, over the years, The Corps runners have won numerous titles and awards.
The Club’s primary objective is to assist runners, helping them to realise and achieve their potential, and to maximise unit and individual participation at all levels of competition. We aim to meet the needs of all standards of male, female, veteran and junior runners through appropriate coaching, training camps and competition.
From talent to trophies and honours
Every year runners from across the Corps represent their Regiments at their Regional Brigade League fixtures. A good performance at these events can lead to qualification for the Army Finals which are held annually at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Alongside this we also host our own Inter Unit Championship where both Regiments and individuals will be crowned Corps Champions.

Ex KESWICK RUNNER
Put on your spikes, push out the endorphins
It isn’t all about the speedy end of the spectrum; every year the Corps holds a Cross Country Training and Racing camp amid the splendiour of Keswick in the Lake district – a dramatic setting and area of oustanding natural beauty.
Ex Keswick Runner 2017 will be the 31st anniversary of the event which has somewhat become etched within Corps History. It is here that we take runners of all abilities away for a week to both educate and enthuse in all things XC. This prepares runners to go back to their regional leagues, hopefully perform to the very best of their ability and continue to relish the challenges of cross country running.
We look forward to seeing many of you there.
