The Gransha grounds will once again host the annual North West cross country championships on Saturday December 19, with a comprehensive race programme set to bring hundreds of runners to the popular Clooney Road venue.

There will be separate races for Primary School runners, U13’s, U15’s, U17’s - boys and girls all running together - and the meeting will conclude with the Open 6K race for male and female U20’s, Seniors and Masters.

The latter is another ANI Cross Country League scoring race and therefore will attract all the participating clubs and also draw in some Donegal club runners, making it one of the best quality races outside of the championships.

All the races will be chip timed and the Primary School and the U13/15/17 races will have ribboned medals for all finishers. The usual extensive prize list will be on offer for the Open race.

The primary schools race has a 1.30am start and the Open starts at 12.30pm.

Pre-entry is available now at nwxcentry@gmail.com, all you have to do is simply send your Name, Gender, Age on race day and club or school.

You can then pay the entry fees - £1.50 for under age races or £6 for the Open - when you pick up your race pack at the U3A Foyle building in Gransha on race day from 10.30am.
