Cheshire County XC Championships 2021

CCAA are pleased to announce that the 2021 County Cross Country Championships are still planned to go ahead on the new date of 17th April 2021.
Venue: Betley Court Farm - near Crewe.

It's as Covid safe as possible, complying with government and EA guidelines.

The County is keen to hold a Championship XC in 2021 and at Betley we have a proven course that we can make Covid safe.
Unfortunately, because of the venue, there is no host club and we will only be able to put on the event with the direct support and help of Cheshire Clubs.
Last year, in a similar situation, most clubs provided volunteers - so we know we can depend on your support.

****We need help to set up, marshal and dismantle the course*****

Set up will be mainly the day before, Friday 16th April, with final touches from 08:30 on race day, ready for the first race at 10.45.
We need at least 12 helpers to support 4 team leaders on the Friday and a similar number on Saturday morning.

Marshalling needs to be in place for the first race at 10.45.
We need 7 marshals minimum to support 3 key marshals for the shorter lap races through until about 12:45.
9 marshals are needed from 12:45 through until about 15:00.
These will be in place throughout the under 20 and senior races.
All these races are using the full, large lap. Those marshalling earlier could stay for these races. but there is an opportunity to change and relieve earlier marshals, if we get the support.

Finally, we need 16 people to help 4 key individuals to dismantle the course.
This should only take 30 minutes from the end of the last event, about 15:00.

We need as many clubs as possible involved with named helpers and an indication of the role they would like to help with or time they are available.
If you want to nominate volunteers, or seek further information about helping, please respond directly to Andy Garnett, the County Chairman, or the volunteer coordinator, Nick Bishop, 
All roles need to be filled as soon as possible - so please respond promptly.
