Ready for some fast cross country ?

The British weather in late autumn, winter and early spring provides an amazing backdrop to cross country racing. Not everyone's cup of tea, but XC is excellent for improving middle distance track and endurance road running. So even if you don't fancy the idea of being a cross country racer, then at least look at it from a training point of view that will benefit your spring 10k, half and full marathon events.
