SW Cross-Country Championships


  • South-West Cross-Country Championships
    •  
    • When? The 2018-9 event was held on Sunday 6th January 2019 at Aldon Hill, just south of Yeovil. Someone had found the switch which turned off the biting wind everyone had to endure the previous year.

      The 2019-20 event is scheduled for Sunday 5th January 2020, hopefully at Aldon Hill again.

      The image below is not taken from a recent race:

    •  
    • 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.

The remaining places were decided on the basis of applications made on the relevant form, which will be made available in due course for the 2020 event. Please note that the selectors do not come looking for you, or send you reminders.

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.
