Press Report: County looks to return of Cross-country

CHESHIRE County Athletics Association is hoping to organise a county cross country championships this winter.

Officials from around the county are working hard to put arrangements and agreements in place so that a fixture can be held in January or February.

Cheshire AA has already received permission from the landowner of Betley Farm, in Staffordshire, to use his premises for the event.

West Cheshire Athletic Club members will be hoping to see the championships go ahead to help focus their minds on racing after many months of training.

WEST CHESHIRE Athletic Club will be staging their Annual General Meeting via Zoom on Monday, November 30. Members wanting to attend need to request a link to the meeting from Club secretary, Clare Mallon.

ENGLISH Cross Country Association will assess no later than the end of December whether the 2021 National Championships can be held, dependent on restrictions imposed by the Government and England Athletics.

The English National Cross Country Championships has only ever been cancelled during the two World Wars and the 2021 fixture is scheduled to be held on Saturday, March 6, at Parliament Hill, London.
