Alton Sports Hampshire Cross Country League


I have been informed that the local council are unwilling to allow the league fixture at Prospect Park, scheduled for Saturday 16 January, to go ahead, due to their concerns over the numbers of competitors in the current situation.

I have also been informed that Popham Airfield is not available for the foreseeable future, due to development work at the site (not pandemic related, for a change!)

In the light of these actions and the current Covid-19 lockdown, the Committee has reluctantly decided to cancel the League for the 2020-2021 season.

The League Committee would like to thank the host clubs for their efforts, albeit unsuccessful, to organise fixtures for this season.

Subscriptions already paid for this season will be carried forward to next season.

League Secretary/Acting Chair


We are pleased to received support and sponsorship for the Hampshire Cross Country League for another two seasons from Alton Sports.

They will be attending our fixtures, offering an excellent range of running clothing and accessories.

The league season runs from October to February and comprises five races in Hampshire and neighbouring counties.
