Bristol McCain Cross Challenge 13th November 2011

The McCain UK Cross Challenge is back for 2011 – 2012, taking in 5 key cross country fixtures across the UK throughout the autumn/winter season. With the support of UKA’s principle partner, McCain, there are 5 high quality competitive opportunities for athletes. The McCain UK Cross Challenge gives up and coming athletes the opportunity to match themselves against established cross country stars, competitive fields catering for all age-groups, Senior, Under 20, Under 17, Under 15 and Under 13 will be contested at the McCain UK Cross Challenge events to be hosted at Bristol, Liverpool, Cardiff, Antrim, with the series final to be hosted once again in Birmingham. Athletes from the Club will be competing in all the Challenge events except for Cardiff due to that fixture falling on the same weekend as the Schools County Cross Country Championships. Due to the over 600 mile round trip a number of cars travelled down on the Saturday to stay just north of Bristol to race the following day. The weather was perfect with the course being very testing and gave the athletes some great experience competing against other athletes from around Britain.
