All-Ireland Cross Country Relays

This is a team event of 4 athletes per team, each running 500m before passing the baton to the next athlete. It takes place in Abbotstown on the same day as the Dublin Even Age Championships, October 16th.

Dublin Leagues consist of three rounds of races with shorter than championship distances. They are an opportunity for athletes to try cross-country at race distances that are not as challenging as Dublin championship races.

Round 1: Sunday 18th September Lusk 11am

Round 2: Sunday 9th October Tymon Park 11am

Round 3: Sunday 11th December Tymon Park 11am

Dublin Championships is a once off race with both an individual and team element. The team element involves the finishing places of each athlete being counted towards the team’s score. Athletes can qualify from these races to compete with Dublin or their club at the All-Ireland Championships.
