Cambridgeshire AA Cross-country Championships
Cambridgeshire Cross Country Championships – January 2021 In the light of England Athletics COVID guidance, it is with regret that the County Cross Country Championships have been cancelled. Our over-riding consideration is the health and safety of athletes, officials and spectators and our inability to provide a COVID-secure environment at Priory Park, a public park, was a key factor in coming to this decision.
CAMBS team selection for CAU Inter Counties
My intention is to select strong teams to represent the County using the County Championship races as the main basis for team selection.
There can be 8 athletes in each age group/gender team. (9 for seniors). For U13, U15, and U17’s the first 6 to finish at the County Champs will be guaranteed selection. The remaining team members will be chosen from those finishing 7/8th and athletes who notified me of having good reason to miss the County event. U20’s competing in the County Champs will be given strong consideration but must be of a suitable standard to compete at the Inter Counties level of competition. U20’s not at the County races will be considered too if places available. Seniors will be selected using the same approach as for the U13-17’s.
I am looking to select athletes who are keen to represent the County and can be relied on to turn up for the Inter Counties. If, for any reason, you do not intend on running the Inter County race please do not accept the place. This will enable me to select a replacement.
Looking forward to the County races and seeing the teams in action at Loughborough in March.
