The races will take place using the grounds of Prestwold Hall and every race will be filmed and broadcast across the web on Vinco sports (www.runjumpthrow.com) and also beamed back to a large screen ant the start/finish area.
Distances will range from approximately 1800m for year 5s to around 2500m for year 7 competitors.
The race maps can be found here.
All the races will be “hared and tortoised” to ensure that everyone that takes part in the event is encouraged and safely seen around the course.
Year three and year four races will be Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland only.
Year five and year six races will be combined national finals and Leicestershire/Leicester/Rutland.
This should ensure there will be a great feel about the event as each of these races will total well in excess of 200 competitors each.
Year seven competitors will have their own races and we estimate that there will be around 100 in each of these events.
