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.

2019-20 Championships: These will be held on Sunday 5th January 2020, at Aldon Hill, Yeovil.
