SW Cross-Country Championships


  • South-West Cross-Country Championships
    •  
    • The 2021-22 season event will be held on Sunday 2nd January 2022, venue to be confirmed.
    •  
    • The 2020-21 Championships, first postponed until Sunday 21st February 2021, at RNAS Merryfield (8 miles south-east of Taunton), was cancelled. This new date was inside the extent of the lockdown period announced by Boris Johnson: as it turned out, any replacement date would also have fallen within considerable restrictions.

      If you would like your entry fees to be refunded, then you will need to complete This On-line Form. Please be patient with us however as it could take a few weeks. But if entrants would be prepared to allow their fees to be carried forward to the 2021-22 season event, that would be great.

      The organisers have denied that officials would have used the transportation normally seen at Merryfield:

    • (there are also Development races for Under-11's, although there is no County team involvement)
    •  
    • Avon Team Vests: Maroon, two gold diagonals (same as Team Avon in the YDL UAG).
    •  
    • London Mini Marathon Teams: The next full-scale London Marathon is due for October 3rd 2021, so the next LMM will (hopefully) take place on the same day. With virtually no Cross-Country in the Winter 2020-21 season, one or more trial races (dates, formats, venues, and even age-group rules have still to be decided) will be used for selection purposes.

Organising a major Cross-Country meeting? That's simple, you just shove up some stakes and marker tape and recruit a few marshals, don't you? Er, not quite. Here is a link to the Tender Document for those who might have wanted to stage the 2014 South-West Cross-Country Championships.
