Home Cardiff Cross Challenge 2017 – 22nd January Welcome to the Website of the British Athletics Cardiff Cross Challenge. Our event incorporates a full range of men’s, women’s and children’s races and is open to runners of almost any age and always attracts many of the UK’s top endurance runners. The course is marked to national standards and incorporates a mixture of flat fast running, and interesting woodland and riverside sections. Our races take place near the centre of Cardiff within the beautiful Blackweir Fields which form part of Bute Park. Hotel accommodation is available within one kilometre of the Course. There are ample car parking spaces at Sophia Gardens which is just a short walk away. There will be a Sports Shop, catering facilities and sports massage therapy available on the day, alongside the finishing straight.
