Event Information

We will be returning to Blickling Estate, on the 4th November 2019 for our Cross Country qualifiers. The route will mainly be on grass but also on a stoney path, therefore spikes are not advised.

Children will need to bring suitable warm clothes for when they are not racing and they will also need to make sure they have a drink with them to keep hydrated.

With the event arrival time of 12.00pm I would advise that the pupils eat their lunch on arrival. Although the year 3 pupils may want to wait until after their race but please work this into your planning of the day.

There will be separate races for year 3/4/5/6 Boys and Girls. We will start with the year 3 girls race and the the year 3 boys race, and so on. Races will begin as soon as the last race has finished and therefore no race times will be published. Approximate race distances are below.

Yr 3 – 1000m

Yr 4 – 1200m

Yr 5 – 1400m

Yr 6 – 1600m

A squad form will be sent to Schools after a booking has been submitted.

Medals will be awarded for the first 3 runners in each race, and if we have enough to run a team event, we will take into account each schools top 8 scores.

The winners of this event will go onto the Norfolk School Games Winter 2020 on Wednesday 4th March at Holkham hall to represent North Norfolk School Sport Partnership.
