The Chelmsford AC
Cross Country Relays
Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th October 2020
Chelmsford AC in partnership with Writtle University College (WUC) are very pleased to announce that we've been given the go ahead by England Athletics (view letter) to host a weekend of Cross Country Relay races.
The races will take place in the stunning grounds of WUC in Chelmsford.
The event will span two days with U13 ,U15, U17 running on Saturday 24th October *U20's and Seniors on Sunday 25th October. *U20's teams will run together with the Senior teams.
Note: If you enter an U20's team, all four athletes must be in that age group, however individual U20 athletes can run as part of a Senior team.
Age Groups as at 31 August 2020. Under 13's must be at least 11 years old on the day.
Separate Male and Female races for each age group.
We're sorry but we won't have enough hours of daylight to squeeze in any U11's races.
U13, U15, U17 races will consist of three legs each of 3000mts.
Seniors & U20 races will consist of four legs each of 3000mts.
The course is a single surface of grass with four small tarmac paths to cross so is suitable for spikes or trail shoes.
All runners must be either first or second claim members of their club and club vests must be warn.
We request that girls wear vests rather than crop tops please, for easier team identification by officials,
The winning team in each category will receive a trophy, also Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd teams respectively.
Due to high demand and restrictions on numbers at the start we've had to make this event invitation only.
Much more information will be published in the coming days and will be forwarded to each team manager by email for distribution to their respective teams.
Entry price is £20 per team for U13 ,U15 & U17's and £28 per team for U20 & Seniors.
Of course due to Covid-19 there are still a lot of do's & don'ts involved, many of which on the face of it will appear Draconian but are only there to safe guard you and your nearest and dearest, so more than ever we're reliant on everyone attending to help us and be considerate in everything we ask please.
Please familiarise yourself with the Governments up-to date Covid-19 guidelines here.
All Race Organisers, Officials and Marshals are giving up their time voluntarily in order to lay on this event for our wonderful running community so we respectfully ask for you not to give them a hard time in what is already difficult event to stage.
