Participants are encouraged to be at pick up points early to ensure that they arrive on time for the races. Buses are scheduled to leave the Grenville Car Park and Kirani James Athletics Stadium Car Park at 8:00am to transport athletes to Golf Course.
The National Cross Country Championship seeks to provide an avenue for distance athletes to develop distance running skills such as endurance and stamina.
The National Sports Council Secretariat, in collaboration with the Grenada Food and Nutrition Council, will be conducting sample tasting of a snack and drink product developed for athletes. The products can be used to replenish energy lost during the races. The athletes will be given the opportunity to provide feedback on the products.
