Outside of the National Cross Country Championships, this weekend sees the biggest weekend of cross country of the season as juniors, seniors and veterans from all over the country converge on their respective Area championships…

One of the most hotly contested areas is always the Northern Champs, this year in Pontefract. Midlanders head to Nottingham and the famous Wollaton Park course, whilst those lucky Southerners head to Brighton and the Stanmer Park course.

Over in Wales Corwen hosts the North Wales Champs too, where competition is always fierce and selections are made the Inter Counties in March.

    While you are correct of course in stating that the National is at Paliament Hill this year, the Southern Champs today are at Stanmer Park in Brighton.

    Thanks Steve. I was looking at the 2011 race details, still at the top of the site!
