The league is a series of 3 races over a flat course to be held at Honley High School playing fields, Neiley, Honley. The league is open to all children in years 3 to 6 but at the discretion of the teacher or person in charge.  Please note that no under or over age children are allowed.  Entry is free.

There will be separate races for boys and girls each split into 2 age groups: Years 3 & 4 in one race and 5 & 6 in another.

The races will be held on Wednesdays – 7th May, 21st May and 4th June postponed to 18th June with the following approximate start times:

Awards

Individuals: Based on CUMULATIVE TIMES over the 3 race series, plaques will be presented to the first 3 children in each of the 4 race categories.  The winner of each category will receive a cup/shield to be held for one year. Those who are 4th, 5th & 6th overall will receive a medal.

Teams:         The first 4 finishers from a school in each race will comprise a team and the winning teams overall, based on finishing positions, will each receive a shield to be held for one year.  In addition there will be a Runners Up Shield.

The first 3 finishers from a small school (2 categories of small school) in each race will comprise a team and the winning teams overall, based on finishing positions will each receive a shield to be held for one year. 

Note:  If a small school wins the open award as well as the small schools award, as has happened, they can only take one award.  This will be the most prestigious, which is the open award.  The small schools award would then pass to the second small school.

Certificates:  Everyone who finishes all 3 races will receive a certificate.  It will show their time and overall position.

Please note that all competitors must be pre-entered. There will be no entries on the day.

Please will those schools who won team shields and individual winners who won trophies in 2013 make sure they are returned for the first race on the 7th May. Please can you ensure they have been engraved.

2014 will be the 26th running of the Holme Valley Junior Schools Summer Cross Country League races. We had 1099 children from 28 schools taking part in 2013.  

The school will enter your child. Entries from individuals will not be accepted unless they are home-educated, in which case email us and we can see what we can do.

When entries are sent in, it is essential that it is clear which category your school falls into, so please tell us, and see below for categories.

Rules - Sorry but there have to be some!

The races in 2014 will follow the same format as 2013. There will be 4 races in each of the 3 meetings. There will be 2 small school category awards in each race. The small school definition will be as follows:

a.     Having a maximum of 75 children at Key Stage 2

b.    Having a maximum of 150 children at Key Stage 2

For the open team awards it will be the first 4 runners to count in each race and there will also be a runners-up team award. For the small school awards it will be the first 3 runners to count in each race. As last year if a small school wins the open team award and the small team award, they can only take one award, which will be the most prestigious, this being the open award. The small team award will then pass on to the second placed small school.

Course discipline is important

·     Please do not allow supporters to cross the course interfering with runners.

·     Wearing of spikes is strictly forbidden due to the possible danger to other runners in crowded conditions.

Failure to abide by these two safety critical rules could lead to disqualification from the event or loss of points for the school.

Race Day

On race day the Teacher or person responsible of each school group should collect the race numbers and safety pins. The collection point will at the front of the Neiley Pavilion situated in the corner of the field.

Notice for Teachers: Please make sure your students know where you will be so they can collect numbers from you. It’s a good idea to carry an umbrella or a banner on a pole, just something to make you stand out from the crowd. Don't forget there will in excess of 1,000 people on the field!

Please make sure that the number is securely pinned to the front of each competitor, with four pins and that it is clearly visible.

As in previous years we need to reduce the amount of printing; so only one weatherproof number will issued to each child and this number and safety pins must be kept and brought back for each of the three races. If number is lost please come to the desk in front of the Pavilion and a hand-written number will be issued, please do not make your own number up.

Please if any child retires during the race please inform someone at the finish so that the race number can be checked off.

There will be separate races for boys and girls each split into 2 age groups: Years 3 & 4 in one race and 5 & 6 in another.

Course length

·     The year 3 – 4 course is one lap and is approximately 1080m long.

·     The year 5 – 6 children run two laps of a slightly different course, which is 1827m. 

Facilities and car parking

Toilets are available in the pavilion. 

Car Parking will be on the hard play area accessed through the gate on Gynn Lane, Honley, close to its junction with New Mill Road. If that parking is unusable due to the weather, the Head of Honley High School has kindly agreed to allow us to use the car parking at the school, which is accessed off Station Road. In either case road signs and marshals will assist. There must be no parking on the main road.

For a location map, see the How to find us page.
