Tri-Counties XC Championships

2023 - 2024 Tri-County Cross-Country Championships

The 2023-4 Season Tri-Counties Championships will be held on Sunday 10th December 2023, at Bath University again, in conjunction with a Gloucester XC League fixture. Entries are now closed.

We believe that the combined event benefits both competitors and organisers, but meeting administration may be a bit more complicated.

The order of races, and the combination of age group and genders in races, may not be what Tri-Counties regulars have become used to. In particular, The Under-13s races come before the Under-11s.
