These Championships use the same age group definitions as the Birmingham Cross Country League and the West Midlands Young Athletes League. U13s must be at least 11 years old on the day of competition. Masters should be 35 or older on the day of competition. Masters and U20s can enter their own age group or as a Senior but will only count towards the individual and team events as declared on the entry form.
Do not enter this event unless you are eligible for Warwickshire. County qualification is either by birth in the County, by 9 months continuous residence prior to competition in the County or by 9 months service in a unit of HM forces stationed in the County.
The Warwickshire County is defined as the Warwickshire pre-1974 boundary which includes Birmingham, Coventry, Solihull and present Warwickshire areas.
Athletes must be current first claim members of the Club for which they have entered.
Rules and Awards
Only Clubs Affiliated to Warwickshire County AA will be eligible for team awards. Only first claim athletes are eligible to score in team competition. Any number of eligible Athletes can be entered per Club. In all age group categories the first 3 finishers will count towards the team except for the Senior Men and Masters Men categories which will count 4. In the case of equal team scores, the first team to close will be declared the winner. Please note that B-teams are not eligible for Team Awards as this is an event for Clubs. There is now an award for the best Club overall – The Heeley Trophy.
In events where age groups are combined, athletes will only be eligible for awards in the race category (age group) for which they have entered.
Medals and awards (team & individual) will be presented according to the timetable (see above)
Masters and Seniors £6.00 per individual. All other age groups (U13 – U20) £5.00.
