County Cross Country Champs - entries now open

The first cross country champs of 2019 are the County Cross Country Championships which are held on Saturday 5th January. Entries are now open - you have until Friday 21st December to send me your entry details.

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 and I'll help you.

Details for each championship are below - 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!
