Upton Junior School Cross Country Event - 23rd June 2018

Upton Cross Country Event.......

On the morning of Saturday 23rd June, Upton are running the Upton Cross-Country event for schools as part of their ‘Sport in the Community’ programme. The event is in its fifth year and is very similar to the Thanet Cross-Country at Quex. We invite all local schools and that races are all 1km long to ensure that no-one is put off by the distance. All runners receive medals, regardless of where they finish and the ethos is focused on getting involved. It’s a lovely event to be part of, especially as it is at our own school and so just down the road from you.

There is an entry fee of £2 per pupil, which covers the cost of medals and event organisation. This should be returned to school by Tuesday 12th June with the completed form below. While staff will be on site to help with organisation, all pupils need to be accompanied by a parent/carer who will be responsible for them on the day.

Within the school we are trying to get as many children as possible to enter and ‘have a go’ in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere.

Hot and cold refreshments will be on sale, and there will be a bouncy castle on site.  Extra medals will be awarded to runners who finish first, second or third in each race.

On the morning of Saturday 23rd June races start at the following times:

9.00am - Fun infants race (300m) for siblings of entered pupils (Pay £2 entry on the day only – medals for all)

9.20 – Year 3 Girls           9.40 – Year 3 Boys
10.00 - Year 4 Girls         10.20 – Year 4 Boys

10.40 – Year 5 Girls          11.00 – Year 5 boys

11.20 - Year 6 Girls         11.40 -Year 6 Boys

Final details and race numbers will be sent out to all pupils the week prior to the event.
