2020 Junior Championships
For 2020 we have chosen 7 races over the year to form our ‘Junior Championships’, which cover ages U9 up to U17. Some are organised by Keswick AC, some by other clubs or organisations. Runners are required to take part in at least 4 races to count, and they are allocated points depending on their position – 12 points for being first Keswick runner in their age group, 10 points for second, 9 points for third, 8 points for fourth etc. Age is at 31st December 2020 for all races. If you run more than 4 races, then your best 4 results count. This year, we also have a ‘Cross Country Championship’, to include your best two Cumbria League XC results from the Cockermouth, Keswick and Workington fixtures. These races are always popular, great fun, and the perfect way to put all your training in to practise!
