Please note that the last two races are earlier to beat the dark.
Please keep an eye on the PEDSSA website for any updated information.

The scoring is based on the best 3 positions for both teams and individuals. Where there is a tie then all 4 races are counted to determine the order, or occasionally the tie stands.

There will be races for boys and girls in the following age groups:
Minors –  (Years 5 & 6)
Year 7 –  (Year 7)
Juniors –  (Years 8 & 9)
Intermediates –  (Years 10 & 11)
Seniors – Under 19 (Years 12 & 13)
The older age groups will run together and be separated at the finish. The team
competition will be based on a system of four scorers per age group. If any team
fails to finish with four scorers then their position will be calculated on the
basis of three finishers. However, a team with three finishers can never beat a
team with four finishers.
In team and individual competitions, the best three performances from the four
meetings will count in the league. However, the fourth performance will count in the
event of a tie

Baiter Park 11th October 2018

Times of races:

Year 5/6 Boys 3.45pm            Year 5/6 Girls  3.55pm.

All other races will be in quick succession.

 Start: See map on arrival.        Course: Flat with a slight rise through the trees.

As the start and finish are inside the race course it is easy for the track to be blocked by runners who are moving to the start or away from the finish. Please ask your runners to be aware of this and stay outside the ‘loop’ when not competing.

Parking: At ‘Harbourside car park one’. Turn right half way along Baiter Park and park near the sea. Minibus parking for 25 minibuses is free but car drivers will need to pay.

Changing: please come changed.         Toilets: Available at the just south of finish area.    First Aid: basic first aid provision will be near the finish.

Finish: All runners will be given a finishing ticket. Team managers will be responsible for recording the names of all their runners on team envelopes which must be collected on arrival and handed in before departure. The team envelopes will be in a blue box folder by the finish line. The completed envelopes, with tickets sealed inside, are to be ‘posted’ in the wooden box also by the finish line.

Please PRINT names and age group (5/6, 7, 8/9, 10/11 or 12/13) clearly.

 Results: these will be sent out to all participating schools along with details of the next fixture.

Safety:  Part of the course runs parallel to the sea. Staff are responsible for the safety of their own pupils.

If you are going to be late, please phone me on 07774211475 and I can delay the start (within reason).
