Most athletes will now have received a cross country fixture list and
details of the two leagues in which we compete. A copy is also available
on our website, www.pendleac.org.uk – in Competition Calendar
Any U11 athlete who wishes to compete in the Red Rose League must be 8
years old on the day of the race. The U11 age group is part of the
league and is therefore eligible for awards at the end of the season.
Athletes competing must wear a club vest. We do have a small number of
vests to lend on the day but it is much better if athletes purchase their
Presently, we are a number of vests missing from the stock we loan for the
day because athletes who have borrowed vests have not returned them. If
anyone has a club vest which they have not purchased please can they
return it as soon as possible.
In the Mid Lancs League the U11 races are used as an introduction to cross
country and athletes are not eligible for awards at the end of the season.
There is not an 8 year old restriction and Dawn, who organizes the league
is happy for younger athletes to run if parents feel their child will
enjoy the run (see your child’s coach if you are uncertain). Under 11
athletes do not have to wear a club vest but if there are any spare from
our ‘loan stock’ they can borrow one. Alternatively they can also
purchase their own club vest.
The first fixture in the Red Rose League is this Saturday, 8 October at
Leigh Sports Village.
