This year our Cross Country Championships will be hosted at the second Wessex League race, so you will need to register for the Wessex League on the Poole Runners website first and then pay the County Champs fee here. Link to register for Wessex XC: https://poolerunningevents.co.uk/events/wessex-cross-country-league-team-declarations-and-individual-registrations-2022/
The DCAA costs include a contribution to the cost of medals, transaction fees and other hosting costs.
Information to enter the County Champs:
ENTRY FEE: £3.50 PER COMPETITOR
CLOSING DATE: 21 st October 2022 BY MIDDAY
NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY OR BY EMAIL
Runners should note that the County XC is being run alongside a Match of the Wessex League and if runners fail to enter the championships they will not be considered for a medal even if they finish within the top 3 in their respective races. If you have entered the Wessex League that does not give you automatic entry to the County Champs.
