Team entries will be based on individual entry classifications, i.e. Masters cannot count as seniors.
For senior men the first six (and subsequent six) finishers from a Club will automatically be counted as a team. For all other age groups the first three (and subsequent three) finishers from a Club will constitute a team.


Criteria to be used in the selection of the Berkshire teams for the Inter Counties Cross Country Championships

Subject to the two exceptions set out below, in each age group from Under 13 to Under 20, the first eight athletes to finish at the Berkshire Cross Country Championships will be offered a place. Athletes finishing between 9th and 12th will be offered the four reserve places.

Subject to the two exceptions set out below, in the Senior Women’s and the Senior Men’s age groups, the first nine athletes to finish at the Berkshire Cross Country Championships will be offered a place. Athletes finishing between 10th and 15th will be offered the six reserve places.

The only exceptions to the above are:

  1. An athlete who has been selected to compete at a higher level competition than the County Championships within 10 days of those Championships [15th December in 2019].
  2. An athlete who has finished in the first three at the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Championships [17th November in 2019], who is unable to compete in the Berkshire Championships due to illness or injury.

In either of the above cases, Berkshire Athletics must be informed at least the day before the Berkshire Championships [by 14th December 2019]. An athlete meeting either of these criteria will take the place of the 8th or 9th finisher, depending on the age group, who would be offered a reserve place instead of the 12th or 15th finisher respectively.

Any athlete who is 20 between 1st September 2019 and 31st December 2020 will need to register as a senior at the County Championships to be eligible for the Inter Counties team if they wish to be considered for the Senior team at the Inter Counties Championships. As that competition is held under IAAF rules, these athletes would be too old to qualify for the Under 20 team.
