Connacht Cross Country

Provisional dates to be confirmed:-

  • Sligo, Even age groups (U12 upwards), possible 25th/26th October
  • Galway, Uneven age groups (U11 upwards), Sunday 8th November

Due to Covid 19 restrictions, Connacht AAI need to cap the numbers attending the Connachts. As some Counties have already taken entries for their Even age groups, it was decided to allow open entry to Connacht for U16 and U18 only. It is assumed that U12 and U14 will all have entered their county competition therefore the following qualification will stand for U12/U14 and all the Uneven age groups;

  • Top 12 individuals and top 2 teams of 4 to run
  • If a county goes into lockdown then the competition will go ahead without the said county.
  • It is intended to hold Senior XC after the Juveniles on both dates.
  • Connacht AAI will meet again by Zoom on Monday 19th October to confirm arrangements.
