CGA Cross Country Championships

Central Gauteng Athletics has reached the end of the 2016 Cross Country season as they host Provincial championships this Saturday, 13 August 2016 at Boksburg stadium, Boksburg from 08h30.

The provincial championships will be the deciding factor for the team CGA will be sending down to George for the SA Cross Country Championships next month. Cross Country being the biggest contributor to athletics development programmes with athletes as young as 8 year old, CGA will be looking forward to sending a reasonable strong team this year. 

Athletes who have participated in at least 4 leagues this season and make it into the top six in their respective events at the provincial championships will automatically make team. However, this will also be advised by their performance throughout the season.

Looking forward to an action filled day of running.
