A note from Sally Hollingshead, Race Organiser

Details and map for the the final league race are on the link below (Charnwood College on Saturday).

The first race will start at 10.30am as usual, but please be aware that some changes have been made to the courses that were used last year.

As this is the final league race, presentations for individuals and teams will take place as soon as possible at the end of the races. Can I please ask that results are returned as soon as possible after each race has been completed to allow results to be worked out as quickly as possible before the presentations.

If schools require extra medals for team members then they will be available to purchase on the day for £2.50 each.

Can I please remind athletes who are hoping to qualify for English Schools through the County Championships in February (automatic selection for those finishing in the top three at the county championships) that there is a requirement that at least one league race has been completed, Saturday will be the last opportunity to meet this criteria.

If you have any further questions about the race then please let me know.
