Rolls-Royce Harriers Broome Cup 

Annual inter-department cross country race at Moorways 

Wednesday 17th April 2024 starting at 18:30

‚ÄčThe Broome Cup is a (circa) 4 mile cross country race run over four laps around the periphery of the Moorways Sports Village complex off Moor Lane. The terrain is mostly grass with a few small climbs and descents on the banking surrounding the running track with a section through woodland at the back of Moor Lane.

You can enter as an individual or as teams of 3 to 4 people to compete in the Rolls-Royce inter-departmental race. All of the camaraderie and natural competition between departments always comes out during the Broome Cup, which all adds to this being one of the most popular races in the Rolls-Royce Harriers calendar.

‚ÄčThere are five trophies to be won. The Broome Cup and Ladies Challenge Cup are awarded to the first male and female finishers. The Pearson Cup is awarded to the first department team, the Ladies Plaque to the first all female team and the Gell Tankard to the first vets team. In addition there are prizes for the first two men and first two lady finishers. 

For teams the fastest three times count with the winning team being the one with the lowest average finishing place / position.

Registration and changing at Moorways stadium from 17:30. Please send team entries to Bill Southgate
