Hi Folks, All of your numbers are packed, this seasons colours are as follows:


U11 - yellow
Junior - orange
Men - purple
Women - blue
also in the top right of each number is category code:
On the back of each number is your chip.
Do not run in hand written or photocopied numbers, it will not be timed, your chip is recorded by the scanners as you pass through the finish, if it's not on the number it will not be recorded.
Team managers must collect the full pack of numbers, we will not split packs, or remove individual numbers, so your team manager must be there in time to collect numbers for the U11s or juniors depending on who is registered.
When numbers are collected team managers must provide payment which is £50 + £3 per runner, and a contact telephone number.
It is the responsibility of the team managers to take emergency contact numbers for their club's athletes. The league do not hold information on individual athletes contact information.
If you have a medical condition you must write it on the back of your number, and let your team manager know.

You are all no doubt excited about the first xc this Saturday at Wrekenton. Everything has been put in place to ensure it’ll be a great start to the xc calendar and we’ve even had the grass cut especially.

In terms of parking there are a number of available parking places by the start of the course on Harebell Rd, please be wary that there is a housing estate so please be considerate of others.

The main parking area will be the Moss heap NHS car park opposite cardinal Hume school (old Durham rd). There will be signs up directing you towards this car park.
The overflow will be cardinal Hume school. Please be aware that the school will be in use for dance classes on Saturday so the car parks in this area will be required throughout the day.
Lastly, if you could refrain from parking in front of the houses opposite the NHS car park. There is someone with a disability within these houses that require unblocked access to their house.
Otherwise please enjoy what looks to be the biggest turnout for an opening xc in years.
Kind regards
Darren (on behalf of Saltwell Harriers)
