Eight Irish teams will take to European competition at the European Club Cross Country Championships (ECCC) in Oropesa del Mar in Spain this Sunday (Feb 5th).

In total, 399 athletes from 77 clubs across 22 countries will battle it out for club honours at one of the longest-standing and most established cross country fixtures on the athletics calendar.

The eight Irish teams secured their place by virtue of their first and second place team finishes at the 2022 National Cross-Country Championships in Rosapenna, Donegal.

Each club will be looking to replicate some of the success enjoyed by Irish teams at last year’s edition, including Ennis Track Club’s historic day which saw their junior men’s team claim gold.
