BHAA races are probably a better race for your first cross country. The Cross Country Xperience is more like a national championships! I know if I was doing my first XC race, i wouldnt want to be in that race!! haha. Dont let that stop you tho.
To answer your question, depending on the surface on the day will depend on your footwear. If you just want to get around then runners will be perfect. If you dont want to lose your footing then i'd invest in spikes or at least trail shoes. Out the back of the course, it tends to get a little wet and muddy but nothing like a traditional XC course which is in a random field that is used to raise cattle!

Very much a beginner to the whole running scene. Not a member of any club but was thinking about trying cross country. Anyone know if the course at the national sports campus is tough?
Was thinking of attempting the Cross Country Xperience on Oct 20th, would i be ok in runners?
