South-West Championships

South-West Cross-Country Championships

History: for several years, this event was a five-sided Inter-County Team competition (Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire): when Avon and Gloucestershire were moved into the South-West region, they were included in the contest. In recent years it has been a combination of Inter-Club, Inter-County and Individual competition.

There was no Championship in the 2020-2021 season: the Championships for the 2021-22 season is scheduled for Sunday 2nd January 2022 at RNAS Merryfield, near Ilton, Somerset.

    • Entries for 2022 have closed. A final list of entrants is available Here.
    • We have reinstated the Development Races for Under-11 Boys and Under-11 Girls this year, but these are not (and never have been) part of the Inter-County competition.
    • Inter-Club competition: U13/15/17: 4 to score. Senior Men (U20/Masters are eligible): 5 to score. Senior Women (U20/Masters are eligible): 4 to score.
    • Inter-County Competition: The seven South-West counties compete against each other. U13/U15/U17/U20: 4 to score. SW/SM: 6 to score.

    • London Mini Marathon Teams: with the next full-scale London Marathon being set for October 2nd 2022, the next LMM will presumably take place on the same day. One or more trial races (dates, formats, venues, and even age-group rules have still to be decided) may be needed for selection purposes.
