Hi all,

It is going to be a true cross country this year with hills, mud and lots of cow dung to contend with! Your kids will need a change of shoes for after the event and drink bottle to take with them. They will have lunch before they go.
The organisation for the event is as follows.

We need marshals on the track for the running of the event. If you are able to help with marshalling on the track please indicate below and meet Tim Young at 12.45pm on the day for instructions. Your help is much appreciated.

All kids are expected to take part. If there is a medical reason as to why they can’t , a note from their parents is required.

Come down and cheer your kids on – they have been training hard!
