Wharfedale Primary School’s Cross Country Relays and Presentation of Awards
Saturday 17th March 2018 Nell Bank, Denton Road, Ilkley, LS29 0DE
Re: KS2 Cross-Country relays and awards presentation, Nell Bank , Sat 17th March
The weather does not look particularly nice for tomorrow's event, however we are keen for the event to happen - all children should wear waterproofs, hats and gloves. Wellies to walk around the field in and clean shoes/trainers to change into for the amphitheatre.
Please could all participating schools pass this information on to competitors.
Parking: As a matter of safety to all road users no-one should park on Denton Road either side of the Nell Bank entrance where cones and tape have been put out. The verges are saturated and cars could become stuck. Please park in the swimming pool car park and walk through Middleton woods to Nell Bank.
Cancellation: IF we have to cancel a decision will be taken at 8am and a notice put on the JIH web site and Facebook page. If it snows and settles on the road it is highly likely that I will not be able to get to Nell Bank so please could you warn all competitors to check before they travel.
IF it is cancelled and any teacher/parent would like me to email them in the morning please get in touch with a preferred email address to use.
Shirley and Sally, organisers

To ensure the day to run as smoothly as possible we would like schools to pre-enter teams (provide runners’ name in running order, relay category [Girls / Boys / Mixed] and whether U9 [yrs 3/4] or U11 [yrs 5/6]).
Race day registration
On race day please ensure a representative from each school collects an envelope containing team race numbers and safety pins from Rachel Websdale in the car park. Numbers should be kept by competitors as a souvenir. If team changes need to be made it should be done between 9 – 9.20am on race day. Please inform Rachel of any amends. There will be some ‘spare’ older Junior Harriers available on the day to make up teams if required.
Many thanks in advance for making the day a success.
