Dear runners and parents
The 3rd event of the Advisa Cross Country is being held at Les Quennevais Playing fields on Saturday 13th March. Entries were carried forward from the Pont Marquet event. At this moment we cant take additional entries until we have calculated the logistics. A further event will occur subsequently with 2- or 3-weeks gaps aiming to complete the series by the end of May.
The details of the final timetable shall include adjusted distances and timings to ensure Covid compliant event segregation is maintained whilst getting through the races quite quickly. One run group will be collected from the top car park entrance to the cycle track near bowls Club and then returned to the main entrance at barrier accessing cycle track across the road from the pool. That group shall be tasked to leave the facility immediately before we collect the next group of runners for their run. The helpers collecting the children shall be CRB checked.
The landowner has specified no Spectators at the facility and therefore the start finish area will only be marked up and open to the Officials and Runners allowing plenty of space for distancing pre and post race. Parents shall be asked to marshall and will see the runners if they are marshalling. We shall split up several groups to have a mix of Runners and the right number of marshals/finish officials to conform with our maximum limit of 35.
Further details of the timetable and a course map shall follow 10 days before the event so parents can walk the child round the course the weekend before if needed. Please bring your series number and pins so your child is ready to run. The run shall have a lead runner and tail and course shall be kept as simple as possible for the younger age groups to alleviate any anxiety which may arise.
As ever the event should remain fun so that all standards of runners can enjoy the opportunity to get some exercise in this beautiful island. We shall reassure the younger age groups they can enjoy a short fun run with friends and shall get plenty of encouragement from marshalls.
Chris, Carly, Gary and team of volunteers
