Taking place in February or March, this is the culmination of the CC season. The mass start is certainly something to experience. The Championships moves around the country and was in Yorkshire on a fantastic course at Harewood House, in 2019. The only permanent venue is Parliament Hill Fields, Hampstead Heath, London, where it was due to return in March 2021. This is an open event, so anyone can enter.
This statement was put out recently by the ECCA. “The ECCA has reluctantly decided that it is not going to be possible to promote the annual English ‘National’ Cross Country Championships at Parliament Hill, London on March 6th 2021 as originally planned. Whilst there may be some degree of relaxation of Covid 19 conditions by then, it is not realistic to start planning and incur costs – both for clubs and their competitors and the ECCA – when the risk of limitations on travel and the size of gatherings continue to exist.” Hopefully back in 2022.
