Giving to the Cross Country Club (Old Members)

The Oxford University Cross-Country Club Old Members' Club - more commonly known as the Old Gits – was founded in February 1998. The aims of the club are as follows:

  • to support the current generation of OUCCC members in any way possible and, by so doing, contribute to the continued strength and success of the club;
  • to ensure as many old members of OUCCC come along to, and hopefully compete in, the 'Varsity Match Old Members' Race and the Teddy Hall Relays, and to organise a social occasion during the evening to coincide with these events;
  • to produce a twice-yearly newsletter with reports of OUCCC's results and details of forthcoming events;
  • to fundraise for large capital projects to benefit the current members of OUCCC;
  • to maintain a database of OUCCC alumni;
  • to maintain an OUCCC Old Members' website.

Perhaps the most important of the club’s aims is supporting the current OUCCC generation and for this reason, our fundraising role is vital. All of the money raised goes back to OUCCC – none of it is used for the administration of the club.
