NEHL 2019-20 Fixture 1: Wrekenton

Harrier League online entries are now closed.
There are 3,642 registrations, 2,813 re-registered from last season plus 829 new this season.

The website has been updated with the new information:

Check it and let Paul know if you think there is a problem.

If there is a race number next to your name then you're registered for Wrekenton on Saturday.

If there is a zero next to your name or your name is not shown then you are not registered.

People not registered by their team manager will have to hope entries are available on race day and pay £5.

This year there are 6 sets of numbers across the categories.

Want to be number 1?
Number 1 has been withheld from all 6 sets.

If you wish to be number 1 in your category then you can buy it for £20.
First come, first served. See race HQ on the day.

Considering it only costs £3 for the 7 races in the Harrier League, 43p per race, you might consider offering more than the £20 and the season would still be cheap.

All money raised will be donated to charity.

U11 - Blue
U13 - Green
U15 - Yellow
U17 & 20 - White
Men - Orange
Women - Purple
also in the bottom right of each number is category code:
U11, U13, U15, U17&20, M, W
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.

All competitors: If you have a medical condition which may affect your ability to take part, or which you think we should know about you must let your team manager know and you must fill in the details on the back of the number.

This includes any kind of heart or lung condition, and related medication If anything happens we need to be able to pass on information as soon as possible.

Guests may run in the league at a cost of £5 for the whole season. This is a one off charge. They must register on the day, and let us know if they competed last season (and if they did we can check the pack).

Guests must be members of a EA or SA affiliated club.

Second Claim runners may not count for team points. They can either run for their first claim club as a guest, or if they come and register on the day they can take part as a non-counting runner in their second claim vest.

Guests & Second claim runners do not accumulate team points, but do get individual grand prix points.

Race HQ will be at the **new** NEHL Tent (get us eh) next to my Yeti at the start area.

Reminder to ALL competitors. We do not split race packs. Your team manager needs to collect and pay for your team entries. I have a list of who owes what, we wi
ll not take individual numbers out of the packs, we are far too busy. Find out who your team manager is and make sure they have a cheque or cash with them to cover the club's entry fees.

Costs are £50 + £3 per runner for clubs

£5 for guests

If by some unknown reason you manage to lose your number on the day after you've collected it from your team tent, you can buy a new one for £5. I know it sounds daft, but it has happened before.

Quick reminder of the rules.

You must start in the pack you have been allocated. If you don't we'll cover you in tar and feathers (and DQ you)

You must wear your club's team vest or tshirt (or you will be DQd & won't count for team points)

Fixture #1 - NEHL Wrekenton - Saturday 28th September

Use postcode NE9 6RZ for SAT NAV

I’m sure you are all aware and very excited for the 1st XC at Wrekenton this Saturday.
Like most clubs who hold an xc event we couldn’t go ahead without the support of the local community and as most clubs can testify parking can be a real issue.
With this in mind, we at Saltwell, would be grateful if you could use the free parking facilities at the moss heaps nhs park and ride area (circled in green).
Cardinal Hume school car park will only be used as an overflow and only when the moss heaps car park is full.
We would also like to remind people not to park on the grass opposite cardinal Hume school or down moss side road (marked in red).
We have previously had complaints by residents and the local community of inconsiderate parking. I appreciate this is limited to a few people but unfortunately the few spoil it for the many.
Other than that we hope that you enjoy our course at Wrekenton and hopefully the weather will stay as lovely as it is today and give you all a big of sludge to wade through.
Thank you
On behalf of Saltwell Harriers
