Alton Sports Hampshire Cross-Country League

 LEAGUE SEASON 2020-2021 CANCELLED

I have been informed that the local council are unwilling to allow the league fixture at Prospect Park, scheduled for Saturday 16 January, to go ahead, due to their concerns over the numbers of competitors in the current situation.

I have also been informed that Popham Airfield is not available for the foreseeable future, due to development work at the site (not pandemic related, for a change!)

In the light of these actions and the current Covid-19 lockdown, the Committee has reluctantly decided to cancel the League for the 2020-2021 season.

The League Committee would like to thank the host clubs for their efforts, albeit unsuccessful, to organise fixtures for this season.

Subscriptions already paid for this season will be carried forward to next season.

Hampshire Athletics Cross-Country Championships 2021

It is with great regret that I have to inform the County that the Cross-Country Championships cannot take place in 2021.

I have had news from the site owners that our event is deemed too large to go ahead safely, even with the changes that I had proposed under the current England Athletics Guidance. Winchester City Council has been consulted and has advised Fairthorne Manor that no large-scale events can take place there until at least Easter 2021.

I am sorry to disappoint all athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers, but the safety of all of you is my first priority. I have every hope that we will be able to hold the Championships in 2022.

Hampshire Cross-Country Championship Secretary
