Cross Country - Introduction


Cornwall Athletic Club has traditionally been very strong at Cross Country, both in the Junior and Senior ranks. Many of the club's youngsters have competed for Cornwall and even for England at school's level and Jon Richards, Mark King and David Buzza have represented Great Britain at the Senior World Cross Country Championships.

The club competes in the Westward League, South West Championships, South of England Championships, National Championships and the club's top runners represent Cornwall at the Inter Counties Championships.


Cornwall Athletic Club organises the final Westward League event of the season at Redruth School and arranges mini buses to take their runners to the four Devon based fixtures.


We are consistently one of the top South West clubs, both in Junior and Senior ranks, for males and females and are always keen to build our teams and recruit even more runners to our XC teams, to experience the fun and challenges of Cross Country! To take part, contact Miranda Flannigan (Cross Country Secretary - Tel 07532 242808) or speak to Emma Stepto, Alan Rowling or Dave Buzza at any training session.
