As I am sure many of you are aware, East Cheshire Harriers & Tameside Athletics Club has for many years now hosted a series of cross country races through the winter months which has been well attend by schools across Tameside. The races give children the opportunity, many of them their first, to take part in cross county competitions. The events are a good way for your school to prepare for the cross country championships which take place in February and are again hosted by East Cheshire Harriers & Tameside Athletics Club.
Registration takes place from 9.30am with the first race (years 3/4 boys) starting at 10am, this will be followed by year 3/4 girls, year 5/6 boys and the last race being the year 5/6 girls. As in previous years, year 3/4s will do 1 lap and year 5/6s doing 2.
You can bring as many children as you like but you need at least 4 to finish a scoring team (you can still run if you don’t have 4).
To confirm your entry please just email me at Saulgallagher@hotmail.com then bring payment on the day.
Cheques made payable to Tameside Athletics Development Group.
We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
