Unfortunately round three of the Oxon cross country league on Sunday January 8th 2016 has had to be cancelled due to no venue being found in time. We knew this was a possibility as the league had lost so many of their regular venues this year.
This round was also meant to be combined with the Oxfordshire county championships where the county officials would have selected athletes for the Intercounties in March for ages under 13 and up.
So, an alternative has been arranged and Oxfordshire athletes will be entered into the Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire county event on Saturday 7th January. This will be at Stowe school. I will be at the event.
PLEASE NOTE ALL ATHLETES WILL BE ENTERED BY MYSELF, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THE ENTRIES.
Also unfortunately this event is only for ages under 13 and up boys and girls (school year 7 and above). I know this is sad for the under 9s and 11s but we have to abide by the rules that this competition has.
If you would like me to enter your athlete please let me know by this coming Sunday, the 11th (Contact), as I have to compile the entries and get them to John Sear ASAP. I’d love to see lots of you in the age groups allowed to come and run at this new event, it is not just for athletes who think they will be selected for the event in March. If you do wish to be considered for selection however then please make every effort to be at this new event. If you can’t be there but still wish to be considered please let me know and I will pass your details to John Sear separately.
We will also now train on Sunday 8th January which will be the first one after the break over the next few weeks.
