Worcester Athletic Club have organised this event in accordance with England Athletics guidelines on the 'Return to Competition for Cross Country Races' - and the WAC Code of Conduct for 'Returning to Training' (see website).

Cross country running is a competitive endurance sport, taking place in the winter months which has associated risks of fatigue and exposure to inclement weather. It is a parent's responsibility to ensure their child is prepared and fit for this type of race.

The Championships will now consist of three races: 13/12/2020 - 11/04/2021 - 18/04/2021
Championship 1st - 2nd - 3rd awards will be determined by summing the best times from two races i.e. unless you competed last December, you must now complete both races to be considered for the overall championships!
