Rules for U13 age group

All year 6s may compete in U13 races, whether or not they have reached their 11th birthday by the day of the race concerned.

Rules for U11 age group

Most of the events will hold a U11 race (except Popham and Reading) and the rules for such races are generally set by the local club organising the meeting. Usually, years 4 and 5 children can take part and year 6 children can until they reach their 11th birthday (unless the local club exercises its discretion to allow them to compete in U11s even if over 11).  Please speak with the U11s team managers, Paul Cox or Simon Harvey, for further information.
