Who had a muddy good run this past weekend?!

A new year and, in the UK at least, the first weekend of January typically means that it is County Cross Country Championships weekend.

With swim / bike / run racing – for the vast majority – several months away yet, it’s the season of back-to-basics running the fields, trails, rivers and mud of the domestic cross country season. No complex equipment, no bike boxes, no concerns about aerodynamics… just run (and leave your best clothes at home!).

As always, plenty of familiar names from the UK tri/du/aquathlon world racing for their local running clubs, with quite a few Gold, Silver and Bronze championship medals collected in the process. Now, with so many events taking place, lots of different categories, here is a start on the medal success of names that we have consistently seen performing well in the triathlon and duathlon world in recent years.

We know it is not complete which is where you come in!

*** If we’ve missed you, your club-mate or someone you know from this list of 2020 County Cross Country Championship medal winners / notable performances, then a) apologies, and b) please do let me know the details (County / Name / Position / Category) via editor@tri247.com, and I’ll get the details updated for you. **
