Leics Primary Cross Country - a history

 

The Primary schools competition originated in 1977. Races were held on Braunstone Park and Western Park in Leicester. The competition moved to Prestwold Hall in 2011 after difficulties with securing venues and the retirement of long term race director George Smolinski. The Leicestershire Running and Athletics Network, under the guidance of John Skevington, are now the custodians of the event. John is only the third event director in the competitions 42 year history!

There have been over 100,000 (yes, that is one hundred thousand) finishers in the event's history.
The documents in the history folder give some feel for the way the event has grown over the years. As they said "Schools league could snowball"!
