We normally encourage all athletes to take part in the Galway cross country for their age group and then select teams for the Connacht cross country. Where someone is particularly suited to cross country, they can step up an age to the older age group.

Its good for all juvenile athletes to do some level of cross country at their own pace as the training will improve their fitness and develop their lungs. Please let your age group coordinator know if you are doing it as the entries for the first Galway event will need to be in shortly.

The distances are as follows:-

  • U10: 500m
  • U11: 800m
  • U12: 1000m
  • U13: 1000m girls 1200m boys
