Cross Country Champs

Monday 3 February 2014

Entries to this year's Welsh Cross Country Championships close on Sunday next, 9th February so make sure you get your entries in on time.

There will be individual and team championship medals and Cardiff AAC has the talented athletes to win plenty of these as we have strong teams if everyone competes. We can even win medals with our A, B and C teams.

The championships will be held in Dinefwr Park, Llandeilo (satnav SA19 1RT) and the first event will be at 10.30am.

Cardiff AAC usually has a strong presence at these championships so let's make this year no exception. 

Entry to the Welsh Championships is £3 per person. Please can you get your entry fee along with your other details (see below) to your relevant team manager as soon as possible so that we can add you to the entry lists - the dealine is Sunday February 9th - to enable us to complete the paperwork and payment to Welsh Athletics? No late entries will be accepted. The club will refund the entry fees of all athletes who compete on the day.

You are all welcome to compete even if you have never run cross country for Cardiff AAC before. You will need a Cardiff AAC competition vest and to wear 12mm spikes in your running shoes. You must also make sure that your Welsh Athletics registration fee is up to date otherwise you won't be allowed to compete. We shall be taking the club tent so there will be somewhere to shelter and leave your kit. There is also a nice coffee shop and toilets are available in Newton House in the park.

We need to get entries in as soon as possible so if you wish to run we need the following information to go on your entry form.
