All the documentation you need to see is on the links on this page.
Please bring the paperwork with you, already completed if possible.

When should we arrive?
We recommend arriving at the venue 90 minutes before your race. This allows time to park, register and warm up.
The car park will be open from 8.00am.
Please be aware that this is a very large event with 800 – 1000 cars arriving during a short period of time.
Peak arrival is between 9 -10am

Can studs/spikes be worn?
Spikes are permitted only in years 5 and 6 and secondary school races.
Football boots may be worn for all age groups, but only those with moulded studs.

Why is there a parking charge?
The league has no sponsorship, so it means that we have to rely on the income from parking fees.
Neither the Running and Athletics Network nor the Primary schools league receives any outside funding.

Our events cost well in excess of £4000 to stage each race with everyone involved giving their time freely.
Car parking charge is £5 per vehicle – please have the correct money as this helps to reduce queues.

There is no affiliation charge. All Leicestershire and Rutland athletes school years 3 to 13 may take part.

 

Can my child run, even if their school does not enter a team?
Children from unaffiliated schools are allowed to run regardless.

Parents / carers of those wanting to run should report at the registration tent upon arrival as normal.

After the race, return the finish position ticket to the desk so that they can be recorded in the results.

 

What should we do if my child uses an inhaler?

They should keep their inhaler with them at all times before, during and after your race.

What happens in case of injuries?

Medical Support will be on site to provide First Aid. If you child is injured, or you notice that someone else is injured, please tell a marshal.

What happens at the end of the race? (Subject to Covid Regulations)
At the end of each race, runners will be given a number ticket.
If your child is running with their school, please give this to your school representative.
If your child is running independently, please take the ticket to the registration desk.

It’s really important that these tickets don’t get lost, because we’ll need them in order to be able to record the results.
Those without a school team manager should return their finish ticket to the registration desk.

Make sure you have something warm to put on your child when they finish the race – even if they feel warm at the finish, they’ll get cold very quickly.

What do I do about Lost Property?
Lost Property should be handed into the results area.

Rules
