Directions to course.
Pass the Bandon Mart, out the Ballinadee road with the Old Still pub on your left. After about 2k you pass Baldwins Bridge then take right at sign for Christy Coal and 2k from here is XC course.
Plenty space for parking in field directly across from course.
U20 girls 3000m
U20 boys 4000m
Individual medals for each of senior/novice and masters categories for men/ women but all categories combined for team prize
There won’t be separate races for novice/senior/master, so all the women for example will run together, and declare their category before the start.
Medals awarded to the top 3 in each category at the finish.
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.
This year will see a perpetual trophy being awards for the Best Overall Club at the Cross Country Championships, so hoping for a bit of competition with bragging rights as to what club names gets on the trophy first.
