Cross Country News
17 Dec 2018

The cross country season is well and truly in full swing, with most Wiltshire areas having now completed their races.

Athletes are training hard at their various clubs and associations, supported well by coaches and parents – our thanks to you all.

Soon the top 15 runners from each area: Kennet, Salisbury, North Wilts, Swindon, West Wilts will receive letters from their school containing information about the county trials. This year we are once again able to use Sheldon School in Chippenham. It is being held on Saturday 19th January, with a reserve date on Saturday 26th January. If you are not sure which area your school is in, or need to contact the area manager – just refer to the WSAA website. Each area can enter up to 15 runners on the entry system and select their top 12 to run. The others can be called upon as reserves that will then be in our entry system.

We select the top 10 runners to go forward representing Wiltshire at the SW race however it may not be the top 10 finishers on race day as we may have "special considerations" to look at. The final 10 athletes" will be selected " on known form".

This year it is hosted by Avon; and held in Bath on Saturday 2nd February. The exact location is tbc. Once confirmed then all details will be posted on the WSAA website.

The top 8 runners again are selected “on known form”,(excluding the minors) will represent Wiltshire at the Nationals. This year we are returning to Leeds. We travel up on Friday 15th march, and the races are held on Saturday 16th March.

Background information:

All parents and coaches, friends and family are welcome to attend every event.

At each race the runners will be looked after by experienced team managers.

Every event has first aiders present.

Please note:

This year all runners are asked to make their own way to the county and the SW competitions. However all runners must register with their team managers by the allotted time, as all runners will need to be registered in good time, before the races start, so they can be prepared properly.
