Organisers on behalf of Cork Athletics County Board: Frank Hayes, Collette O`Riordan & Jerry Cronin

Dates: 1st September - 1pm,  15th September - 1pm & 29th September - 1pm

 Venue : - Cork Athletics County Board Grounds, Slieveroe, Riverstick


These Leagues are intended to enable athletes, young and old, to both train and become familiar with Cross-Country running, before the start of the Cross-Country season.  If you've never tried Cross-Country, the leagues also provide an ideal platform to try out Cross-Country running. There are many clubs who don't have much, or even any, presence at Cross-Country Championships - it would be great to see these clubs represented in the leagues.  Do Try it - Guaranteed you'll come away looking for more!

Intentions of Leagues

  •     To help athletes get into a routine for cross country training
  •     To allow athletes measure their progression over the three League events
  •     To give athletes an opportunity to train as a group, instead of on their own, as often happens, particularly in smaller clubs
  •     To allow Cork athletes to prepare better for the Cross-Country season, and be ready to compete with the best in Ireland
  •     To make new friends during the Leagues, so that, on competition day, they will have familiar athletes beside them, helping promote team spirit and sportsmanship
  •     To remove the championship element
