This event incorporates the Leicestershire and Rutland county primary schools championships.
Please see the provisional timetable for details of race times.
We are pleased to be hosting the event again at Prestwold Hall near Loughborough.
The number of athletes per national team has been increased to 12 to allow even more young athletes to compete.
Leicestershire and Rutland Teams have also been increased to 12 per team.
The criteria will remain the same insomuch that each team can bring 12 athletes per team meaning that up to 72 athletes from each area/region/club team etc can take part.
There remains no selection criteria so keeping this major event open to all. There will be the usual array of team awards as well as trophies and medals for the top performers.
We are very much hoping that the big screen and drone feed will be there again in 2019.
There will be more initiatives added to make the day even more memorable!
One definite major improvement this year that will benefit both entering and receiving is that all entries will be on line. This means that team managers can make changes right up to the day prior to the event.
We have now set up a FaceBook closed group for the schools cross country events held in Leicestershire. The group will be shared between the primary school leagues and also the national finals, as they include Year 7s.
