A series of five races will be held on Saturday mornings hopefully, on Birch Road Playing Fields, Walkden and Bolton Road Playing Fields, Salford. Please note that the Birch Road, Walkden venue is subject to the building work due to start this school year for the new Walkden High School. Therefore amendments to the course routes or even the venue may be necessary and participating schools will be notified. Schools are invited to enter teams of children or individual runners in all or some of the races. Following the final race, a presentation will be held this year at Mesne Lea School ( to be confirmed ) to award medals to the top three teams and top three individuals in each category. To qualify for these awards teams and individuals must complete at least 4 out of the 5 events. Please note that it is normal for the events to continue in wind and rain, yet on occasions of extremes of snow and ice, or unusually heavy rain, events have in the past been cancelled. In the event of a meeting being postponed team managers will be notified via the internal mail and by a telephone message in the week leading up to the event. The races are organised by myself with assistance from a number of others. The details of times, dates and events appear on further accompanying pages.
