Road Running

Chippenham Half Marathon - South West Inter Counties Road Championship (COUNTY TEAMS)

Date: 08/09/2019

Location: Chippenham

I am delighted to confirm that the South West Road Running Championship will be taking place again in 2019- with both a 10k and a Half Marathon race in the series.

The HM will take part within the Chippenham HM on Sunday 8th September, and 
The 10k within the Gloucester 10k on Sunday 24th November [NOTE: this does clash with the Mob Match and GP presentations!]
 
Cornwall COUNTY mens’ and ladies’ teams will be selected for EACH distance. (6 runners per team) and I’m delighted to act as Team Manager again (please note I'm not a selector!)
 
Athletes are eligible for selection if they are either Cornish by birth, OR have had Cornish residence for at least 9 months, OR are in the armed forces. They must also be registered with England Athletics.
 
These will be hugely competitive races - with strong teams possible from Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Avon- but this is sure to spur our runners on to great performances, potential PB’s and the chance to claim REGIONAL medals.
 
If you wish to be considered for selection, please email me on stella_uk_1970@yahoo.co.uk,  stating which distance (10k and/or HM) you prefer to be considered for.

Selectors, who are from a number of our running clubs  will select from that list by taking into account performances at GP and DAN track races throughout the Summer. They will also keep a list of reserve runners who may be called on in case of last minute injuries/illnesses. Runners will be informed in plenty of time.
 
We are awaiting final rules and entry dates/fees/ requirements etc from organisers, so they will be updates to this information in the future.
I hope to secure sponsorship to help towards, or maybe cover, the entry fees, but athletes may have to contribute towards hotel costs and/or car sharing expenses. County vests can be borrowed FOC, or purchased, to keep.
Races will be run under UKA/EA rules.
 
This is a brilliant opportunity to possibly represent your county- please spread the word!
