Organiser's Description


** Please note that in order to comply with a request from the park to finish by 4pm and vacate the site immediately afterwards we have rescheduled this round of races. The junior categories which have leeser fields have been amalgamated so that boys and girls run together, allowing for medal presentations this will allow us to finish on the requested time.

This is the deciding race for the series (Best two scores out of three to count) and medals will be awarded on the day, juniors approximately half an hour after the last runners come home in each category and seniors/vet men and women after the mens race.

Races are run in age groups u11 (2.0km) u13 (3.2km) u15 (4.8km) u17m u17w  u20w  and Seniors/vets females (all 6.4km) and senior men (8.6km).  The League will allocate you to the correct start group according to your stated date of birth on the application form. All distances are approximate and subject to change to accomodate measures such as extra space in the start area and a longer run to the first 'pinch' point. The rules for age groups are available to view on the Athletics4u website under the Cross Country tab downloads. ( MV65+ may opt to run in the shorter distance Senior Female race or run as M60+ in the longer male race).

The league races are open to runners and teams  from outside Gloucestershire AAA .

Start times for races will be in age order, starting with u11's at 10.20am and finishing with Senior men at 1.40pm, full details on Athletics4u website in advance of the fixtures. Some age groups running a similar distance but with small entries will be be combined for running but results will still be published as separate categories. This is also the case for vet categories where an age group results will be published along with age group series standings.
