The delayed Lanarkshire AAA Cross-country Championships for 2021 will be held on Saturday 12th February. The venue will be Kirklandpark Primary School, Strathaven. This was the venue the last time this championship was held, back in November 2019, and a great location it turned out to be. The senior race (male and female combined) will commence at noon, and will be 6.4km.
Coming just two weeks before the National XC in Falkirk, this would be a great sharpener for that event. It would also make a lower-key debut for anyone wanting to try their first cross-country race. Indeed, due to the late announcement of this event, it will not be included in the club’s cross-country championship. So, in that respect, the pressure is off. But there ARE still LAAA XC medals up for grabs.
Entry is free for this race. Senior endurance athletes wishing to enter should email or private message Alan Strang (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday 26th January. Please also indicate your date of birth, as this is required on the entry form.
