The West Yorkshire Cross-Country League starts on 5th October  at Keighley with subsequent fixtures in the Leeds area on 27th Oct, 17th Nov and 8th Dec (details here http://www.westyorkshireathletics.org.uk/XCMain.htm )  The league is open to all those aged 9 or above on 1st Sept 2019 – age groups (boys & girls) are U11, u13, U15, U17, U20.  In the past we have had several juniors competing in this competitive league. Please let Andy know asap if your child is interested in entering as they will need first to be registered with English Athletics (fee £15 for the year) & we will assist you with this process.
The  are once again being held at Giggleswick School on Sunday 6th October.  These races are for secondary-school age children & entries can be through your child’s school or you can enter them direct via the event website https://www.esfrc.org/index.php/home which also has information about the courses, timings etc.  It would be great to see lots of our juniors running for their schools in this local (but national !) event.
From Tuesday 17th September, we will be offering an alternative training session for juniors in school Year 8 and above on Tuesday evenings.  In addition to the existing session geared predominantly for those preparing for competition, there will be an alternative 2 to 3 mile “social run” for those less competitively inclined or new to the sport etc.  All year 8+ juniors will warm up together at 5.45pm then divide into 2 groups around 6.00pm for their separate activities before coming together again at the end of the session.  The social runs will be accompanied by at least 2 adults (coaches,assistants,parent volunteers).  If you know of any children in this age-group (not already in the club), who might be interested in joining these social runs, please do ask them to contact Andy (a free try-out session can be arranged before they commit to joining the club).
