Friday closing date for County Cross Country Champs

Reminder that entries for the Essex, Middlesex and Surrey county cross country championships which are being held on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th January 2016 close on Friday 18th December. Please note Kent entries are now closed.

The County Cross Country Championships are different from other cross country championships in that the race you enter is dependent on your entry criteria as an individual, and not the Club. If you're unsure which race to enter, please contact me, Lisa Pettit, and I'll advise.

Details for each championship are below and when you contact me with your entry details, please confirm which race you want to enter. For all races, please note an athlete who has competed in a County Championship, or represented a County in an Inter-County Championship, may not compete in the championship of another County in that calendar year. Again ask me if you're unsure if this means you!
