CAU Inter Counties

The CAU Inter Counties will be held on Saturday 9 March 2019, at Prestwold Hall, nr Loughborough. The first 3 finishers will be selected automatically; the remaining places are at the team managers’ discretion, with results from the Oxford Cross Country League and other Regional/ National races taken into consideration.

Club team managers should submit names of anyone they wish to be considered for the Inter Counties if those people are not available to compete in the Oxon County Championships.

As selection for the inter-counties teams will be MAINLY based on the results at the county championships, any runners wishing to be considered AND who are not entered for the championship event MUST tell the Championships Co-ordinator [John Sear, County Chairman] BEFORE the County Championships.

It would also be helpful if such athletes could include details of their race performances to that date, including the distance for each event. Also any runner selected for the Inter Counties teams and who is then unable to compete due to illness or injury should inform John SEAR in enough time for the County to seek a replacement.

Please see the County XC Champs entry information for more information on the CAU inter counties.
