Do you want to represent West Cheshire AC in cross-country championships?

All three forthcoming events are good occasions, with potentially welcome distractions close at hand to persuade our nearest and dearest to come along and cheer/ hide in a warm café. Because these events matter greatly to the club, entry fees will be paid by the club, on the basis that members who ask to be entered turn up on the day.
No qualification needed, all abilities represented. Run in any one event or all three. The only requirements are that you are a fully-paid up FIRST-CLAIM member of West Cheshire AC and, for the Cheshire Championships only, you must either have been born in Cheshire or have been living in Cheshire for at least nine months before the race, and must not have competed in another county’s championships since October 1st 2018. The races/ nearby distractions are:
Cheshire County AA Cross-country Championships at Birchwood Forest Park, Warrington, Saturday January 5th 2019. Age groups from under 11s to veterans. Distraction: Ikea??
Northern Athletics Cross-country Championships at Pontefract Racecourse WF8 4QD. Saturday January 26th 2019. Age groups from under 13s to veterans. Distraction: Xscape Yorkshire.
English National Cross-country Championships at Harewood House Leeds, on Saturday February 23rd 2019 (where the 2018 Northern Cross-country Championships were run). Age groups from under 13s to veterans. Distraction: Big stately home, where the TV series “Victoria” was filmed, apparently.
Please email (please don’t just reply via Facebook or tell a coach – your name won’t get on the entry list!) with your name, date of birth and the name of the championships you want to run in, by the following dates:
Cheshire: December 22nd 2018
Northern: January 4th 2019
National: January 4th 2019
Any entries after the Cheshire closing date above must be done by the entrants themselves, who will have to pay an entry fee. It appears that there is no individual entry to the Northern or National championships, so please let us know by the dates shown above if you want to run!
The club is paying members’ entry fees again this year on the basis that people commit to showing up on the day unless there are legitimate unforeseen circumstances, eg illness or injury. If members who are fit to compete decide to pull out after entering, the club will expect to be reimbursed for their entry fees. Please be sure that you want to run before committing to do so.
The club will NOT be arranging transport to these races. The races generally run in order of age group, so we neither want youngsters to be waiting for seniors to finish nor seniors getting up early and waiting around for hours before their races.
If you want to know more about cross-country, please see the off-road page of the club’s website, or feel free to contact the Cross-country Officer via the Contact page of the website
