Gloucestershire League Season Entry
12 Aug 2023 - 31 Oct 2023
GLOUCESTERSHIRE CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE 2023-4
PLEASE NOTE There are two separate forms, one for u11 and one for u13 and older, (the u11 form doesn't need the EA number). These can be found by clicking the sign up button.
Team block entries are still handled by Athletics4U web page as in previous years.
The league is a series of four fixtures with medals for the season's top three in all age groups presented at the last fixture. (Score is based upon lowest three positions out of four races and running totals are published after each round). Your age group will be based upon the date of birth declared on the form. The rules for age groups are available to view on the Athletics4u website under the Cross Country tab. Additionally, MV65+ runners may opt to run in the shorter distance Senior Female race or run as M60+ in the longer male race.
There are team prizes with the following rules regarding the constitution of a team :-
Senior men’s teams will need 6 men and masters men will need 4 men. All other age groups including masters will require 3 runners (due to less numbers in these categories). (We are happy for larger clubs to enter A, B, C etc teams and for all these to be listed in the results, as it potentially encourages more individuals to enter teams and therefore take part (even if this might mean a larger club’s teams finishing 1st , 2nd , 3rd ahead of a smaller club who might only finish 4th )
League prizes for all ages will continue to require all 4 races to score for the team prizes.
Details of each round will be published on the Athletics4u website and can also be seen on the Entry Central individual race entry pages.
You will be given a set of four identical running numbers at the first meeting you attend, which you must look after and bring to each meeting. You will be automatically placed on the start list of all races and will not need to come to registration on a subsequent race day.
Additionally this year we are combining the county championship with the league meeting at Bath and the county championships of the Tri Counties and so you must declare your county at the time of booking, this is mandatory. Eligibility requirements are given on the Athletics4u website. For example, a runner born in Gloucestershire or having lived in the county for at least 9 months will need to answer "Gloucestershire" to this question.
The league races are open to individual runners and teams from outside Gloucestershire AAA. For the county championship question if these runners are not eligible for one of the championships there is a "none" choice. In junior races, where boys and girls run together, separate finish lists are published and medals are awarded for each gender group.
Price for affiliated runners for four races is £25 for seniors/masters and £12 for u20 and young athletes (Price will discount when you enter EA number and further if young Athletes click junior age group question) . (For unaffiliated runners the price will be £33/ £20)
The race is run under UK Athletics Rules and is an England Athletics permit event.
There is no additional fee for entering online. Please note that entry fees are non-returnable although in the event of the season being curtailed there will be a favourable price for next season to reflect the cancellation. There will be no on the day entry and this offer will close at midnight on October 31st.
See above for details of how to get your numbers, Race Numbers are not exchangeable and no-one will be allowed to run without one. Please check that your club is correct when collecting your number and on the published list on the Athletics4u website.
