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, 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?

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!

TEAS/COFFEES ETC

There will be a full range of teas, coffees, cakes and Club merchandise for sale. Please use this. All monies raised will go towards the ‘Back the Track’ appeal
