      • "Under-20's" for this competition are those athletes who have their 18th or 19th birthday during the year of the competition. So athletes born between 1st September 1998 and 31st December 1998, who may compete as Under-20's at County, South-West, Midlands or National level, cannot compete as Under-20s in this event but can be considered for selection for the Senior team.
    •  
    • Selection: The combined County may nominate 12 athletes for each race, with 8 allowed to run on the day and 4 to score (Senior Men / Women: 15 nominations, 9 to run, 6 to score). In 2017, the nominations and eventual selections were agreed by e-mail dialogue between representitives of the two Counties' regularly active Cross-Country clubs.
