2022 Cardiff Cross Challenge
The 2022 Cardiff Cross Challenge will be a World Athletics Cross Country Tour Gold Label Event!
The Cardiff Cross Challenge was founded in 1997, and took place inside the Castle walls for two years, since then it has grown into one of the most prestigious Cross Country events in the UK.
The event regularly hosts Inter-area matches, and has held Home Country International’s on numerous occasions. In 2000 we played host to the AAA Inter-Counties Championships which now takes place annually in Birmingham.
In 2021 our race attained a prestigious Gold Label as the season opener in the World Athletics Cross Country Tour.
The 2022 event takes place on Saturday 15th October in Llandaff Fields, just north of the City Centre and alongside the River Taff and, this time we will be looking to bring a selection of the world’s top Cross Country performers to compete.
All races are fully marshalled, and the course is marked to national standards.
St John Ambulance will be in attendance. A Sports shop and Catering facilities will be available. Hotel accommodation is available nearby, and more information can be found on the Travel Page.
