Calling all Junior Pacers! JAFFA Junior Cross Country Relays ... Sunday 16th October.
JAFFA are trialling a Junior cross country relay event on Sunday 16th October 2016 in Bourne Park, Ipswich (post code IP2 8LU).
This tester event is for invited clubs only so that JAFFA can ascertain the park and course suitability for an annual event which would run from 2017 and be opened up to all local running clubs.
Bourne Park is well located on the outskirts of Ipswich and will provide a challenge for the young athletes. There are toilet facilities but no changing area and limited under cover area.
Parking for the event is limited so please if possible share transport. If the car park becomes full there are a number of residential roads close by that could be used, but please do not park on the Stoke Road as this is a main bus route.
The races will be girls and boys running at the same time starting at 11am with the u11 age group. We anticipate that races will commence for each age group at 45 min intervals. The race order is U11, U13, U15 and U17.
Timing for the event is by hand stop watch.
Please find attached a copy of the event rules.
We would like as many Junior Pacers as we can muster, so please do email Martyn if you would like to take part firstname.lastname@example.org
