SW Cross-Country Championships


  • South-West Cross-Country Championships
    •  
    • When? The 2019-20 event will be held on Sunday 5th January 2020, at Aldon Hill again. Will we get the mild conditions of 2019, or the dry conditions but bitter wind of 2018? The entry system is now open, and can be found at This Site.

    •  
    • Inter-Club competition: U13/15/17: 4 to score. Senior Men (U20/Masters eligible): 5 to score. Senior Women (U20/Masters 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. The Avon teams will be selected from those who submit individual entries: to judge by last season, we should be able to give most Avon athletes a team place. Athletes, whether selected or not, can still count for their club teams.

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.
