Dear cross country athletes and supporters,

Athletics Gauteng North has selected twelve athletes in each age category to take part in
the Inter Provincial Cross Country meeting which will take place at Amajuba High School,
Newcastle on Saturday, 11 July 2009.

Please note that athletes who are selected into the team wear their Gauteng North
Provincial attire at this event. Age category tags are compulsory for age groups 35 and
older. Athletes 13 years and older will be required run with a provincial license number (or
with a temporary licenses number which will be on sale at the event).

AGN would like to thank the four selectors who worked very hard at making sure that all
athletes were considered fairly. The team selected is the best on paper, but with the depth
of our competitions these days we do realize that many other athletes are equally up to the
task if given the opportunity. Like Mpumalanga, we would like to invite the athletes who are
not currently in the team, to come and take part as well and show the selectors that they
have made a mistake by not including you. You may take part in your club gear. Champions
get back when the chips are down. I know of many athletes who could not make their
provincial teams but who went on to represent our country in later years.

The competition is open to all. You do not have to be part of the team to take part.
However, only athletes in the team will be allowed to run in AGN attire. Athletes who are
not in the team take part in their club attire.

Please use the letter attached if you require a letter for your school or any other reason.

Congratulations to those who are included in a very strong AGN team. If you are part of the
Gauteng North team, you rank amongst the best athletes in the country and we are proud of

Gauteng North attire can be obtained at Exco Sport at Loftus Stadium from 08:00 to 17:00
on weekdays: Tel (012) 420 0800.

Please ensure that you have a copy of your ID (Birth Certificate) available if required.
Results will be distributed electronically on Monday after the Inter Provincial.

NB! If you are not able to attend, please contact me, Andre Gobey at or the Gauteng North Athletics office at 012 327 4932 or any
