The Saturday Series event at Rothamsted on the 7th Oct will see the start of the 2017-2018 Youth League Season which will continue through the Saturday Series events of November, December, February and March. Please see the Fixture list for details.  The league is open to any School or Youth Group and we are keen to encourage more groups and individuals to compete.

Entry on the day is always possible, though we encourage larger groups to reserve maps in advance so that registration runs smoothly and we can cater for numbers.

The courses and classes will be unchanged from last year, with the courses determined by School Year:

Year Course Distance Expected Time
Year 3/4 White 1 – 1.5km 10 – 40 mins
Year 5 White 1 – 1.5km 10 – 40 mins
Year 6 Yellow 1.5 – 2.5km 20 – 40 mins
Year 7/8 Orange 2.5 – 3.5km 30 – 60 mins
Year 9/10 Orange 2.5 – 3.5km 30 – 60 mins
Year 11/12/13 Light Green 3 – 4km 30 – 70 mins

For Individuals, the best 3 scores from the 5 events will count. Medals will be awarded for both participation and 1st-3rd places in each class (subject to running 3 events).  Groups have up to 4 scoring events.
