The South Yorkshire Cross Country League numbers should be available for sale. The League is a local, lively and friendly event and it would be great to see as many of our young athletes as possible representing the club and taking part.
There are a total of 4 races in the season (see note below for venues and dates).  All races take place on Sundays, the first race is at 11:00.  Athletes can compete in as many or as few as they want to - but to qualify for an overall league position, they must compete in at least 3, and one of those must be the 4th race - the Championship on 11th December.  A time and position is given to all athletes at each race.
The first 3 matches follow the same order, the final Championship match follows a different order.  The format, timings, age groups and distances are listed below.

Buying a number 
If you want to take part in one or more of the league matches, you need to buy a number.  The numbers cost £8, and you keep the same number for each match - so the total cost for all 4 matches is £8, and it is still £8 if you choose to do fewer.  Linda
 be selling the numbers at the EIS on Wednesday evenings or you can buy one from me at the first event .  

Venue information, rules etc
I will send out detailed information including address and postcode, parking arrangements etc in the week preceding each match.  Further information is available from the SYCAA website at in the 'Cross Country' tab.  Please note that this website is often not updated until the week preceding the event.  All things being equal, I will be at each event with the club tent. This is provided for you to keep shoes, clothes, small, cold younger siblings etc in.  We also have a club flag which should help you find me.  Most venues do have toilet facilities, but not much more.

General rules, age Groups, club colours etc
You must be a first claim club member to compete in these events, and 
club colours must be worn or you could be disqualified.  Anyone who does not have a club vest (not the Wednesday night t-shirts - this is a running vest in green and blue) can contact me to get one, or get one from Tom Grantham This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. There are usually a few in stock but it is wise to get in touch well in advance.  Senior Men must compete in the dark blue and green vests NOT the lighter coloured vests issued to BAL athletes.
Age groups are the same as your age category for athletics this year - for cross country you continue to compete in that category until the end of the cross country season.  All ages as at 31 August 2016 (eg anyone competing as an U13 must not have reached their 13th birthday on 31 August 2016).

Runners must be at least 8 years old on the day of the race to be allowed to compete.   
Numbers must be worn at each meetingor you could be disqualified.
