A Team shall consist of Six Runners, although a Team may consist of fewer than Six.
All Runners MUST be 14 or over on the day of the event. If there is likely to be any doubt, to avoid embarrassment or possible disqualification, bring proof of age with you
All Runners must reside in the Parish or Ward they are representing. This is because it is an Inter-Parish Competition. Appearing on the electoral roll for a Parish does not in itself constitute residency. If it is found that a player does not reside in the Parish or Ward they are representing, all points gained by the team in that event will be forfeited.
Each Captain shall bring with him/her a list of all team members. This must include the full postal address of each team member and must be handed to the Organiser before the competition starts.
If a Parish or Ward has entered but does not then take part, the Parish or Ward will be deducted 3 points unless the Parish Captain has given the event organiser a minimum of 24 hours’ notice of non participation.
Only one race will take place - on the playing fields to the rear of the High School. The route will be explained on the night, but the distance will be over 3 large laps of the playing fields (approx 3,000 metres), with coned-off corners to be kept on runners’ right. On completion of the three large laps, runners will enter a funnelled-off area to the finish, where numbered tags will be handed out. These tags must be put into the envelope handed to your captain on registration, with the total score entered on the front, together with the name of the Parish/Ward.
Official Judges shall decide the respective places of each Parish. The Parish having the lowest aggregate shall be declared the winning Parish. In the event of a tie, the Parish whose last scoring Runner finishes nearest the first place shall determine the result.
Parishes do not need to enter a full team, but a minimum of TWO runners must take part. Where a team has less than 6 runners, an additional score will be added for the missing competitors, ie if there are 69 competitors, an additional score of 70 will be added for each missing competitor.
Any queries before the event should be made to Sue Collins on 01905 841269/07947 147030.
Any protest must be submitted to the Secretary – Sue Collins – within SEVEN days of the event taking place.
