Northern Ireland’s top athletes go head-to-head against an abundance of international talent as Athletics Northern Ireland host its annual IAAF permitted International Cross-Country Race.
As well as being part of the IAAF cross-country circuit, the meet also forms part of the Home Countries Cross-Country series, and part of the UK Athletics Cross Challenge. With teams from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and NI/Ulster all competing, in addition to the International stars, this provides excellent competitive opportunities for local clubs in all age groups to compete at a very high level within home nations.
There will also be a full programme of supporting races from primary schools age upwards for both boys and girls. This attracts large entries of youngsters which gives them the opportunity to compete on the same programme as Olympic and World Championship competitors.
