Bedfordshire County Cross Country Championship


The Bedfordshire County Cross Country Championships are held in early January each year. The Bedfordshire championships are normally held with the Buckinghamshire championships and therefore the venue for the races alternates between the two counties every year.


The county championships races are used to select the county teams for the Intercounties Cross Country Championships held later in the year. They are also used to select the county entrant for each age group for the London Mini Marathon in April.


While most club members are qualified to run in the Bedfordshire County Championships, we have many members who compete in neighbouring county championships such as Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire & Northamptonshire.  


Qualification for county championships is based on birthplace or residence.  More details about qualification can be found on the County AAA websites where you will also find entry forms and recent results.  Bedfordshire AAA website.
