The African Southern Region Cross Country Championships is an annual international cross country running competition between Southern African nations, organised by the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA). Established in 1997,[1] it is one of three regional cross country championships organised by the CAA, alongside the North and East African Cross Country Championships.[2][3]

The competition is one of three senior athletics championships organised for the Southern region, alongside the main African Southern Region Athletics Championships and the African Southern Region Half Marathon Championships.[4][5]

Senior and under-20 level races are held for both men and women, which have both individual and national team rankings. The championships previously featured senior short races over 4 km,[6] but these were discontinued after 2006, in line with changes to the IAAF World Cross Country Championships programme.
