New Tri-County Cross-Country Planned for Sunday 12 December 2010

22 May

After a few years experimenting with the Avon County Cross-Country Championship being held in conjunction with a Gwent League fixture the 2010 Championship will see a new departure. The plan is to hold the county championship at the University of Bath on Sunday 12 December 2010 in an event that will see Somerset and Wiltshire hold their championship in the same series of races.

It is hoped  that this new initiative will see the County Championship regain some of its lost profile, whilst combining with two other counties will see a good standard of competition that will encourage athletes to enter.

Further details will be circulated once the cross-country season starts (I know we have only just started to see some sun) but please put this date in your diaries now as the club would like to do all it can to breath life into a discipline that needs support to reverse its decline.
