The Cross Country Cup is a point score competition for Queensland Athletics clubs, used to determine the champion club for the season.

QA club members earn points for their club each time they participate in point scoring events during the season. After each event, the points earned by club members will be tallied to determine the club places for the event, and the club points for the leader board.
