Young Athlete Road and Cross-Country Relays 2012

27 Aug

The Road and Cross Country Relays are once again fast approaching and Team Managers are keen to ensure that young athletes are not overlooked for selection.


Both Midland and National Road Relays are contested by teams of three runners each running a distance of 3.8 km – roughly the same distance as a Schools Cross Country race.


The Midland Cross Country Relay has not been contested in its present format where teams are made up of one runner from each age group (1 per Under-13, Uunder-15 and Under-17). We intend to have representation this year!


The National Cross Country relays are contested over shorter distances, with each leg run over 2km, 2.5km and 3km dependant on age. 


In recent years Bristol & West Athletic Club has had a fine record with success coming in Under-17 Men/ under-17 Ladies and Under-13 Boys at both Midland and National level.
