The Warandecross is probably one of the most prominent cross country races in Europe and is a member of the European Athletics Cross Country Permit Meetings.
The Warandecross Tilburg has the silver label from World Athletics.
It is arranged by the local organizing committee under the auspices of the Dutch Athletics Federation. Traditionally, strong competition at European level is guaranteed, largely because of the date on which the Warandecross takes place. This (European) race takes place a few weeks before the European Athletics Cross Country Championships.
The complete timetable for the event can be found here….
Only athletes from European countries can participate in the International Warandecross Tilburg. Therefore only athletes with a European passport or long term residence permit are allowed (at our invitation) to enter the race.
The location at which the race takes place, in the beautiful surroundings of Tilburg University, offers you a challenging track for your competition. The track includes grass parts, muddy pools and tough hillocks, but also some wider lanes on which you can overtake your competitor!
