National XC Championships Cancelled

August 24, 2020

The 2020 Canadian Cross Country Championships to be held November 28 in Abbotsford, British Columbia have been cancelled. Athletics Canada made the announcement today after consulting with the Abbotsford Local Organizing Committee and BC Athletics.

Athletics Canada is optimistic that local cross country events will be able to take place in the fall, but with current restrictions in place, the prospect of a national cross country championship with upwards of 800 participants is simply not possible.

We will turn our attention to 2021 and start looking at what may be possible in terms of a 2021 Canadian Cross Country Championship. Athletics Canada in partnership with will soon be announcing details for a virtual Cross Country challenge to take place this fall.
