The following times are approximate for events on the day. It is not possible to give exact times for each race but the information below outlines the order of the intended programme.

Starting Time for Year 1 and 2 - 10.00 am

This event is a fun run involving a short circuit around the perimeter of the soccer ground, starting near the far end of the netball court and finishing on the grass near the children’s playground.

Starting Time for Year 3 and 4 races - 11.50 am

Year 3 and 4 children will first be able to enter a competitive event starting with Year 3 boys, followed by Year 3 girls, then Year 4 boys followed by Year 4 girls. These will not be held concurrently with the fun run. We will be recording the names of the children who come first, second and third in each race. After the competitive events are finished, all children will be given the opportunity to take part in a fun run over a shorter course.

Starting Time for Year 5 and 6 Races - 1.40 pm

Year 5 and 6 children will first be able to enter a competitive event starting with Year 5 boys, followed by Year 5 girls, then Year 6 boys followed by Year 6 girls. These will not be held concurrently with the fun run. We will be recording the names of the first 10 place getters in each race, from which a school team will be selected to represent the school at the inter-school cross country next term. After the competitive events are finished, all children will be given the opportunity to take part in a fun run over a shorter course.

Dress- please ensure your children bring a change of clothing to run in as they may get muddy and wet. They may wear their running clothing as they come to school in the morning.
