Shinfield Junior Cross Country Races
11:30am Monday 1st May 2023

The Junior Cross Country Races are on Langley Mead, which is a 5-minute walk from School Green via Millworth Lane. They are held across the rough alluvial pasture and flood plain alongside the River Loddon, so may well be wet and slippery underfoot, and the grass will be long because of University of Reading experiments with rough pasture and wild flowers. There will also be potholes caused by cattle. The races are not chip-timed, and SMS results are not available.

  • 11.30am      Blue race – Ages 4,5,6  – 1.7k, one lap.
  • 12.00noon   Green race – Ages 7,8,9 – 1.7k, one lap.
  • 12.30pm     Red race – Ages 10,11,12  – 3.4k, two laps.
  • 12.30pm     Yellow race – Ages 13,14,15 –  5.1k, three laps.

Entry is £5 per runner in advance here at Entryhub or £7 on the day subject to a limit of 300 runners. All junior runners will receive a medal, and there are trophies for the first three boys and girls in each race. Please note, there are no refunds in the event of race cancellation, or a runner withdrawing before the race for whatever reason.
