Cross Country Dates

17 Oct 2017

 Cross Country 2017-18

Dear Pupils and Parents


2017/2018 North West Leicestershire Schools Cross Country League


The dates for the new Schools Country League have been issued and we would like to forward them to you for your diaries.

These races will be run as a league, with individual medals for the top 3 children in each gender / age group and a trophy awarded to the best placed team (3 runners) in each age / gender at the end of the season. The children’s finishing positions will be added together from all the races and the lowest cumulative score will win. In the event of a child not running a race, they will be given the position of the children in their race plus one.

Our new children from Acorn classes are very welcome to come along and try the running. In the past, they have loved it!

Staff from Willesley School will be at each event to manage the teams but we ask that parents/carers stay with their child throughout the morning.

The confirmed dates are:

  • Saturday 18th November- 10am – Broom Leys
  • Saturday 3rd February- 10am - Measham C of E
  • Saturday 24th February – 10am – Hugglescote Primary
  • Saturday 3rd  March- 10am - Sir John Moore Primary
  • Wednesday 14th  March- 4.00pm - Presentation ceremony hosted by Sir John Moore Primary
  • Saturday 24th March - County Race

Children will now be able to race in any number of races and their top 3 results will be the ones used. This means that they can ‘miss’ a race without losing out on points!  The top 8 children overall in each KS2 age/ gender will be invited to represent North West Leicestershire at the County Race.

As each race is confirmed closer to the date, we will forward you the details and ask that you confirm if your child is intending to compete nearer the time.

Kind Regards

Mrs Blackburn, Miss Elliott and Mr Smedley
