CLC Striders compete in three different Cross Country leagues: men and women both compete in the Gloucester League; the women compete in the Midland Cross Country League and the men have entered the Birmingham Cross Country League for the 2011-2012 season.
The Birmingham League is an traditional cross country league and will certainly give the club a new challenge. Unlike the Gloucester cross country league, the Birmingham league has promotion and relegation at stake which definitely brings out the best in an athlete.
