I asked to join the Facebook group but nothing has happened?
It’s likely that you’ve made the join request from a Facebook app on a mobile phone and haven’t seen the questions we need you to verify.
Please click on this facebook group link and make sure you answer the 3 questions.
 
When should we arrive?

We recommend arriving at the venue 90 minutes before your race. This allows time to park, register and warm up.
The car park will be open from 8.00am.
Please be aware that this is a very large event with 800 – 1000 cars arriving during a short period of time.
Peak arrival is between 9 -10am

Can studs/spikes be worn?
Spikes are permitted only in years 5 and 6 and secondary school races.
Football boots may be worn for all age groups, but only those with moulded studs.

Why is there a parking charge?
The league has no sponsorship, so it means that we have to rely on the income from parking fees.
Neither the Running and Athletics Network nor the Primary schools league receives any outside funding.

Our events cost well in excess of £4000 to stage each race with everyone involved giving their time freely.
Car parking charge is £5 per vehicle – please have the correct money as this helps to reduce queues.

What should we do if my child uses an inhaler?
They should keep their inhaler with them at all times before, during and after your race.

What happens in case of injuries?
Medical Support will be on site to provide First Aid. If you child is injured, or you notice that someone else is injured, please tell a marshal.

What do I do about Lost Property?
Lost Property should be handed into the results area.

Rules
Pacing – children that are paced WILL risk disqualification. Ensure all supporters are aware of this.
A child can only run in one race per meeting.

How do I enter on the day?
This information to be provided

What happens at the end of the race? (Subject to Covid Regulations)
At the end of each race, runners will be given a number ticket.
If your child is running with their school or area, please give this to your representative.
If your child is running independently, please take the ticket to the registration desk.

It’s really important that these tickets don’t get lost, because we’ll need them in order to be able to record the results.
Those without a team manager should return their finish ticket to the registration desk.
If you have an individual runner print off the results sheet in advance and complete it before leaving

Make sure you have something warm to put on your child when they finish the race – even if they feel warm at the finish, they’ll get cold very quickly.

Our volunteers and officials have a right to be protected from abuse in whatever form from competitors/parents/guests or any other adult attending the event. The organisers reserve the right to DISQUALIFY a child or school if this rule is not adhered to.

Do you need any help on the day?
Yes please! We have a team of volunteers but are always glad of any extra help. If you would like to volunteer, please contact us.

Help with collecting up stakes, fencing etc. and clearing the venue of litter at the end of meeting is MUCH APPRECIATED – MANY THANKS.
