Eastern Inter Counties XC – Essex Selection

We have decided this year to send Essex XC Teams to the Eastern Counties XC Champs, to be held on the 19th November 2022 at Southill Park in Biggleswade. This is for:

  • U20 Men, U20 Women, Senior Men & Senior Women only.
  • 4 to run in each team (with 3 to score).

Selections for this race will take place from the 1st Essex League at Thurrock on the 15th October 2022 (entries must close by the 28th Oct 2022).

Allison Gillan will be acting as Essex Team XC Manager for this fixture, as both Phil Oatham and Paul Bailey are not available. If you are unable to be at the trial event, please contact the team manager for consideration at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If this event is successful we hope it may become a regular feature to the XC calendar.

The Essex XC Champs will take place on Saturday 7th Jan at Gloucester Park, Basildon.  This is for all age groups.

Entries are now open and will be online via Active Training World.

Entries close on Sunday 18th December

Team scores are 4 to count in each age group except senior men which is 6 to score.

Race timetable, course maps and entries are via this link:



The Essex XC Relays will be held on Saturday 24th September at Weald Park, Brentwood.

This year we will be using an online entry system instead of the old paper based one. This will mean a couple of changes - Team managers can still enter all the teams but athletes information will need to be submitted at the point of entry and not on the day. There are instructions as to how to complete the entry so please read through them before starting.

We will also be using chiptiming, which will be part of the race number and not a chip on the shoes.

We hope with the introduction of both online entry and chiptiming we will be able to offer a much quicker results service and award medals soon after each race.

Entries close 1 week before the race and access to the online system can be found here:
