St. Brigid’s Athletic Club would like to invite your school to participate in the Geraldine Dolan Memorial Cross Country Meet on Tuesday the 4th of October 2016, at our Club Grounds adjacent to the St Brigid’s GFC Pitch. Competition to commence at 11.00 am with events for Minor Boys & Girls up to Senior Boys & Girls.

 

Order of events below which is aimed at catering for all competitors,

with distances ranging from 1,000m to 2,000m. Points will again be awarded to the first 10 individuals in each race, with the winner getting 10 points, second placed 9 points etc… In the case where there are not 10 individuals in a race points will be scaled back in line with the number of finishers - e.g. if there are only six finishers in a race the winner will get 6 points, second placed 5 points…

In addition, there will be a team competition - Minor & Junior Boys & Girls races will be teams of four to count, while Intermediate & Senior Boys & Girls races will be teams of three to count. Points will be based on the number of teams in each race – e.g. if 12 teams finish, the winners will get 12 points, second placed 11 points… while if only 4 teams finish, the winners will get 4 points, second placed 3 points…

Athletes must run in their own age group except in a team event where ONE athlete from the age group immediately below may complete a team. No athlete may run in more than one race.

Finally, individual & team points will then be added together with the best overall School receiving the Geraldine Dolan Perpetual Cup.

Entry Fee €2.00 per athlete.

I would be grateful if you could please advise us of your participation at your earliest convenience.
