Results of this years race can be found on the 2017-2018 results page.

This years race was a demonstration of top class cross country running by Jaimie Roden who lapped most of the field taking part and was a clear winner in 22-23 over 2 minutes ahead of second placed runner Kenny Malton (24-26) who himself was a minute clear of 3rd placed runner Adam Creswell (25-29). The Ladies race was a much closer affair with Pascale Holden (29-01) taking the winners trophy ahead of Claire McKittrick (29-14). 

The Broome cup is actually two races in one.  It consists of the race for the Broome cup and the Pearson Team Trophy.  It's a (circa) 4 mile cross country race run over four laps around the periphery of the Moorways 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.

The team trophy is a Rolls-Royce interdepartmental race, where people can gather up a team of 3-4 people and race against each other.  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.

Teams are submitted ahead of the event, and the fastest three times count, with the winning team being the one with the lowest average place.
