SW Cross-Country Championships


  • South-West Cross-Country Championships
    •  
    • The 2020-21 Championships will take place on Sunday 3rd January 2021, at Aldon Hill, Yeovil, again.

      Regarding Covid-19: The organisers have taken note of the recent EA Guidance on Cross-Country Competition, and feel sure that they will be able to provide a meeting in accordance with the guidance. It may look rather different from what people have seen in previous seasons, though.

      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. Athletes, whether selected or not, can still count for their club teams.

    • The 2019 Results can be found Here.
    • The 2018 Results can be found Here (Spreadsheet format).
    • The 2017 Results can be found Here (Spreadsheet format).
    •  
    • Who competes? U13/U15/U17/U20/Senior athletes for each gender
    • (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: with the next full-scale London Marathon being set for October 3rd 2021, the next LMM will presumably take place on the same day. Results from Winter 2020-21 season Cross-Country events will be of little or no value for selection for an event several months ahead, so 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.
