North Down AC and North Belfast Harriers Win the XC League Top Spots

The final round of the 2018-2019 Athletics Northern Ireland Cross Country League took place on Saturday 23rd February 2019 at the NI & Ulster Senior Cross Country Championships in Lurgan Park. Double points were on offer for this event, which saw an increase in numbers, with a total of 19 clubs competing in the Men’s league and 15 clubs in the Women’s.

North Down AC came out as the clear winners of the Women’s league, for the second year running, with a total of 186 points. After a hard-won battle for the runner’s up spot, Ballydrain Harriers are in 2nd place with 156 points, only one point above 3rd place, Beechmount Harriers in 155 points.

The league was once again, very well supported by the clubs and we had an increase in numbers across the 8 events. We would like to thank all who have taken part in the league this year and look forward to another successful year in 2019-2020.

The ANI Cross Country and Road Running Committee will be meeting shortly to look at arrangements for next season’s league and would welcome suggestions or comments from clubs or athletes on how the league might be improved or enhanced.  Comments or suggestions should be sent to info@athleticsni.org before the end of April 2018.
