Golden Acre Junior Teams 12 July 2022


Here are the teams (see table at bottom of page)

There were over 70 names put forward, 65 now remain

I’ve kept the teams very simple, so

  • ideally separate teams for boys and girls
  • ideally separate teams for the three age categories (years 2-4, 5-7, 8-12)
  • mixed teams (at least one boy and at least one girl) are permitted and I’ve had to create a couple of them
  • mixed age group teams are permitted but are classed as the older age group and I’ve had to create a couple of them
  • but as most of our training groups are 2-4 and 5+ and separate boys and girls, my ideal gives the best change that team members know each other

Please comment to [email protected] or on the Facebook post if

  • you’re on the list but no longer available
  • you’re not on the list but would like to run
  • you’re on the list but would like to run with someone else.

I’m now only making changes if essential i.e. if someone drops out.

Arrangements on the night

  • The race starts at 6:30pm
  • I am requesting that all our junior team members arrive at race HQ by 6:00
  • You’ll need to arrive at the East car park (off Arthington Road) by 5:50 (hopefully this car park won’t be full by then but it will be very busy)
  • if you need to use the toilets it may be better to park in the Main car park (off Otley Road) and walk through from there as your walking route will pass the toilets
  • Come to the Valley Striders banner and meet your team members
  • (I’m looking for 5 parents to help with this, 2 to get the girls teams matched and 2 to get the boys teams matched and 1 to get the mixed teams matched)
  • At 6:10 we’ll see who is missing and possibly reorganise teams so that if a first leg runner is missing we’ll shuffle the other team members forward.
  • At 6:20 a 5 minute warmup, especially for the first leg runners
  • First leg runners will be called to the start at 6:25 for a briefing. It is likely that all runners will be called to the briefing.
  • All teams are likely to finish before 7pm
  • Presentations will be about 7:15pm (after the adults race has started)
