National XC Donington park

Donington Park is a motorsport venue located near Castle Donington in Leicestershire, England. Originally part of the Donington Hall estate, it was created as a racing circuit during the pre-war period and is used these days as well for a multitude of events including huge Music Festivals. Having successfully staged the English Schools Cross Country in the Park 2 years ago, it is the turn of the Clubs to have ago. Northern Athletics have spent hundreds of hours organising the event and though the start and finish are in Donington Park the course goes onto adjacent farmland and crosses into Derbyshire.
