Prospectus and Competitions within Competitions

The prospectus is here.

Also incorporated into the individual championships are two team events, meaning your one run will enter you into three events:

  • The Individual Championships
  • The Club Team Event
  • England Masters Athletics Association Inter-Area Cross Country Challenge

and with the wonder of computer technology all you have to do is enter the individual event, leaving the organisers to create the teams. The prospectus sets out the qualifying criteria.

The venue

Corwen is on the A5 trunk road in the Dee Valley, 20 miles west of Wrexham and 10 miles
west of Llangollen where there are several hotels and guest houses.

The Rhug Website sets out the attractions of the Estate. It is set in stunning North Wales countryside and sets out its organic farming credentials. The Farm Shop stocks loads of stuff produced on the farm and it all looks mouth watering. Cross Country runners will probably look forward to visiting the cafe.

A Bit of History

This Championships last took place at Rhug 4 years ago, and there is just a hint of defiance of the impending restrictions in the race report.
