Saturday 9th March 2013, Nell Bank Centre, Ilkley
This event is restricted to KS2 children from the 12 Primary Schools in the League.
Nell Bank is a DOG FREE AREA so please leave your dog at home or in the car. Changing and toilet facilities are available at Nell Bank but all activity areas are strictly out of bounds. We will be using the Nell Bank field as we did for the 2012 Cross-Country relay event (map below). Please try to park at the Swimming Pool and walk through. One teacher/adult representative from each school may park in the small car park at Nell Bank.
Teams of 3 runners in 3 categories - all girls, all boys and mixed. There will be two separate Relay races. One for U11 (Years 5/6 in any combination) and the second for U9 (Years 3/4 in any combination). Stay within age categories, have 3 different runners per team and no doubling up across teams. Schools can enter as many teams as they like.
U11's (Years 5/6) will do a 6 x one lap relay. Leg 1 runner hands over to leg 2 --> leg 3 --> leg 1 --> leg 2 --> leg 3 --> finish. So all three runners will do two laps.
U9's (Years 3/4) will do a 3 x one lap relay. Leg 1 runner --> Leg 2 --> leg 3 --> finish.
9 - 9.20 Register teams - confirm/change runners names & collect race numbers.

The Award presentation is likely to finish at 11.20 and we would like everyone to stay until the end. After the U9 relay please could children assemble with their schools on the field/car park to be directed up to the amphitheatre. Children may also like to bring a pair of clean trainers to change into for the indoor presentation.

If team changes need to be made it should be done between 9am and 9.20 on race day or by e-mail to Shirley before. There will be a number of 'older juniors' available to make up teams and run if required.
