Update: Schools XC

Just to confirm.
The West Cork Board will not be holding a Secondary Schools Cross Country in 2020.
This is mainly due to concerns about insurance and hosting of events where participants are not registered members of Athletics Ireland.

Apologies to all schools who have supported this event over the years and have been preparing in anticipant of it being held again in 2020.

Overall team prize also, 4 athletes to score, so team could for example be 2 senior, 1 novice and 1 masters, or 4 novices.
and it would be possible to win more than 1 team prize if enough athletes from one club team took part.

Best Overall Club.
There will be perpetual trophy being awarded for the Best Overall Club at the Cross Country Championships, Bandon AC won last year, so who’s name will be on it for 2019 ??
