Swansea Harriers At The European Cross Country Championships

The very best of luck to the awesome foursome of Dewi Griffiths, Kristian Jones, Verity Ockenden and Cari Hughes who are representing Great Britain & Northern Ireland at the European Cross Country Championships, which are being held in Tillberg Holland on Sunday 9th December. You can watch them live on the BBC here.

The European Cross Country Championships consists of six races in age categories, with separate senior, under-23, and junior races for both men and women. There are individual and national team medals awarded in each race. In the team competition, the finishing positions of the top six scorers from a team of up to nine are combined for the men and women respectively, and the lowest score wins. For the junior races, the top three from a team of up to four are scored.
