Cross Country Season Arrangements

from Athletics NI.

Given the continuing restrictions on sporting activities as a result of the Covid 19 regulations it is unlikely that the forthcoming cross country season will be able to proceed as originally envisaged.

Not only do we have to work within the athletics protocols, but some facility owners are adding additional conditions which we must also adhere to. In addition a number of clubs which normally promote Cross Country events have informed us that they are unable to do so this season.

Therefore the Athletics NI Cross Country and Road Running committee will be meeting this coming week (w/c 28th Sept) to consider how to reconfigure the season bearing in mind that the regulations are fluid and can potentially change at short notice. A number of suggestions on possible formats have been made and these will be included as part of the discussions.

We hope to be able to announce plans as soon as possible and hope clubs and individuals will understand the situation we find ourselves in.
