Shinfield Junior Cross Country Races

11:30am Monday 6th May 2024

The Junior Cross Country Races are on alluvial pasture and flood plain alongside the River Loddon, so may well be wet and slippery underfoot, and the grass will be long because of University of Reading experiments with rough pasture and wild flowers. There will also be potholes caused by cattle. The races are not chip-timed, and SMS results are not available.

  • 11.30am      Blue race - Ages 4,5,6  – 2.1k, two laps.
  • 12.00noon   Green race - Ages 7,8,9 – 2.1k, two laps.
  • 12.30pm     Red race – Ages 10,11,12  – 3.1k, 3 laps.
  • 12.30pm     Yellow race – Ages 13,14,15 –  4.1k, 4 laps.

Entry is £5 per runner in advance or £7 on the day subject to a limit of 300 runners. All junior runners will receive a medal, and there are trophies for the first three boys and girls in each race. Please note, there are no refunds in the event of race cancellation, or a runner withdrawing before the race for whatever reason. 

One adult only may run with any child in the Blue race - Ages 4,5,6. Children aged 7 or older may not be accompanied. Headphones may not be worn during the race.

Runners should pick up their numbers from the school hall of Shinfield Infant & Nursery School no later than 30 minutes before the start of their race. Full instructions will be emailed out to runners once they have entered.
