2018 WPH Schools’ Cross County Races Cancelled

2018 WPH Schools’ Cross County Races Cancelled – Sat 6th October 2018

Unfortunately we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Schools Cross County Event.

We realise that this will be a disappointment to those athletes who have already entered, as it is to our Club, however there are a number of factors that have led to this decision.

It is heartening that so many of the potential competitors will be taking part in the Schools Cup that has, at a late date, been scheduled the day before our event and also in the local schools league match on the same day; WPH started the Schools Cross Country event over fifteen years ago to give local school children a chance to take part in cross country races and gain experience in competing. However, having races so close together is not good for the athletes.

There have also been a number of new logistical challenges emerging this year that, while they can be solved individually, together will impact the safety and enjoyment of the event.

We wish you all the best in your sporting endeavours for the rest of the season.
