LEAGUE RULES 2019


MATCH 4 - There will be no match 4 however results from the South West Cross Country Champs will be included (See below)

We have been asked to try and get a fourth fixture together, unfortunately lots of efforts failed this year and we were unable to put this together.  However another solution has been sought, the organisers of the South West Inter Counties have agreed to let us extract their results to create the fourth fixture.  Anyone wishing to take part in this needs to follow these instructions:

People wanting to have this included as their fourth fixture need to register online using this link and pay the fee requested (the league has only charged clubs for three fixtures):

It is important that athletes enter using the system before the closing date of 23th December. We cannot and will not add anyone after that date, there are NO entries or guests on the day. Also if the athlete does not qualify for the SW by birth or residence in a SW County then they cannot qualify for a medal. Clubs from outside the SW will not be included in the team results.
