Events for Juniors

There was a V S Update email on 19 August and a Juniors Update email on 29 August

All of this information has now been consolidated onto a single page on the website

Please note there are some deadlines occurring in the next 2 weeks
– City of York Track and Field on Sunday 22 September, online entries close 18 September, entries on the day will be available

– Kirkstall Junior Race (ages 12 and above) and Mad Monk Meander (ages 11 and below) on Sunday 29 September, no entries on the day for either and Mad Monk Meander likely to sell out well before then (at time of writing there were 34 places left)

Note that Peco XC Junior Series entries will open soon but please await the discount code before entering, it will not sell out, details to follow in another “juniors” email.

Signing-in Sheets

Please ensure that your juniors sign in every week.  This week at GSAL 49 juniors signed in, but looking through the Long Jump and 100 metres results, I found another 10 who hadn’t.  This time I have added them to the log, but I won’t be doing that in future weeks; those who don’t sign in will be waiting longer for their 25, 50 or 100 medals.

The registers also count towards the two cups we award every 6 months.  For more details of our awards see http://valleystriders.org.uk/new/juniors/awards/
