The Cardiff Cross Challenge was founded in 1997, and took place inside the Castle walls for two years, since when it has grown into one of the most prestigious Cross Country events in the UK.

Our event reguarly hosts Inter-area match’s, and has held Home Country International’s on numerous occasions. In 2000 we played host to the AAA Inter-Counties Championships which now takes place annually in Birmingham.

The 2018 event takes place on Saturday 13th October in Llandaff Fields, just north of the City Centre, and alongside the River Taff. All races are fully marshalled, and the course is marked to national standards.

St John Ambulance will be in attendance. A Sports shop and Catering facilities will be available. Hotel accommodation is available nearby, and more information can be found on the Travel Page.
