The Cross Challenge offers five high quality and competitive cross country opportunities for athletes which culminate with the series finale in Loughborough next March. In order to be eligible for prizes at the final, athletes must have competed in two of the previous four cross challenge fixtures. There is no entry fee for those who qualify.

The Cross Challenge also gives up-and-coming athletes the opportunity to match themselves against established cross country stars with competitive fields catering for all age-groups: senior, under-20, under-17, under-15 and under-13.

British Athletics believes that the series is a fundamental pathway for endurance competitors, and, with cash prizes on offer, the series guarantees fantastic racing opportunities.
