CROSS-COUNTRY RELAY CHALLENGE 2017

 

WHAT IS THE CROSS-COUNTRY RELAY CHALLENGE?

Teams of four are required to complete a lap each of the course in a relay style. Ideally Athletes to be same-sex, same-age, but happy to accommodate mixed ages/teams to ensure everyone gets a run! This will be the 15th running of the event, and has proved extremely popular. Fancy dress, whilst not compulsory, is definitely welcomed!

WHAT NEXT? (TEAMS)

Organise your team. Agree a team name, discuss fancy dress possibilities. Email your full team to chrisbtg@blueyonder.co.uk no later than Thursday November 2nd 2017. If you cannot do so, then just turn up on the day and we can sort then!

WHAT NEXT? (INDIVIDUALS)

At least half the athletes competing will not have full teams, and we will need to organise this for them. Many of these win medals, and have a great time, so definitely worth emailing for us to sort out a team for you (even if it’s on the day!) chrisbtg@blueyonder.co.uk

WHO CAN COMPETE?

Anyone from school year 2 -8 is welcome. Why not speak to friends in school, or from other sporting teams you are part of? THIS IS DESIGNED FOR EVERYONE, NOT JUST ENDURANCE ATHLETES. IT IS MEANT TO BE A ‘FUN RUN’ SO PLEASE GET STUCK IN AND INVITE FRIENDS FROM SCHOOL/OTHER CLUBS ETC

COMMENT

Whilst there will be some fantastic Athletes on show, this is designed as a fun event, and an introduction to Cross-Country for many. It is not meant to be a serious Championship event, so we request that all Athletes are supported ‘equally’. Walking, for some, will be inevitable. This is not an event to be worried about. Come along, smile and enjoy!

ASSISTANCE

We are always looking for help, either registration, marshalling, or time keeping. If you can help, then please make us aware so that we can plan!

TEAS/COFFEES ETC

There will be a full range of teas, coffees, cakes and Club merchandise for sale.
