Stamford Striders Juniors can start to experience and enjoy competitive running by taking part in the 2017 Stamford Striders Juniors Championship.
There is no obligation to take part - it is completely optional, yet open to all Junior club members, regardless of ability.
The fastest time does not necessarily get the highest position. To allow for differences in age, positions are decided by the percentage outcome of the age grading calculator which uses international statistics based on a large number of races that have taken place worldwide (Ref: WMA Age grading calculator 2006, updated 2010).
Points are allocated separately to boys and girls. 50 for the winner, 49 for 2nd and so on. Results can be found by clicking on the long link below.
Five races must be completed to qualify for the championship.
There is nothing to stop you entering more than five, in which case your best five results will count.
You must enter as a Stamford Strider.
Please note that parents are responsible for getting Junior members to and from races and for staying with and supervising their own children.
The Peterborough GP Series are held on Wednesday evenings at 7pm and cost £3 to enter. For more details visit the GP Series website - you may also find additional details on the individual club websites (ours and Nene Valley Harriers') that are listed below.
The other races vary according to the organising club.
For more information ask one of the coaches or e-mail Junior Co-ordinator Rob Fountain.
