Cross Challenge

British Cross Challenge - Traditional Age Group Cross Country

Written by Mark Vile:

This is a great experience where you will compete against the best in Britain. You do not need to be a top performer to compete here. If you struggle to make the County team for the Inter-county cross country champs you can gain an entry by competing at two of the first 4 challenge races. We as a group have done very well over the last few years in this series. You need to complete in at least two of the first 4 and run in the final event to count towards the over prizes.  There are still individual prizes at each race.
