Youth Cross Country Series


Youth XC Series

2023 Youth Cross - Country Series


Athletics NB is happy to announce that the Youth Cross-Country Series will be back this fall of 2023 ! Our goal is to provide more opportunities and initiate youth ages 1-13 to take part in running events.

The Series will consist of  XC meets across the province, with everyone who competes in one of our series meets will be invited to race at the ANB Crown (Provincial Championships). All upcoming XC meets can be found on our calendar.

Race Organisation

Anyone is capable of hosting a meet and we encourage schools, recreation organizations, clubs and other groups to host a meet themselves to prepare their athletes for the Crown. ANB will provide support in the form of an easy guide to see what are the upcoming events along with invites to the ANB Crown and Social Media promotion.

With that said, if you are planning on hosting a meet please let us know and we will promote it on our website. We are able to provide meet organizers with placement ribbons and ticket invites to the ANB Crown that will take place on November 4th at Odell Park in Fredericton.
