Britpart BCCC to kick off in Crickhowell

The 2009 Britpart British Cross Country Championship starts at the weekend (11/12 April) when the opening round takes place near Crickhowell in South Wales.

The venue is a new one for the championship and a course of six miles, made up of gravel and dirt tracks, will test the competitors over the two days of the event.

Several of last year's leading crews have confirmed their entries for 2009, including 2008 champion Richard Kershaw.

The championship consists of six rounds including events in Radnor forest and at Sweet Lamb. The cost of entering for the full season is £900 with entries also available for individual events.
