Rules for U13 age group

All year 6s may compete in U13 races, whether or not they have reached their 11th birthday by the day of the race concerned.

Rules for U11 age group

Most of the events will hold a U11 race and the rules for such races are generally set by the local club organising the meeting. Usually, all years 4 and 5 and 6 children can take part (unless the local club exercises its discretion to require year 6s who've passed their 11th birthday to compete in U13s instead). Please speak with the U11s team managers, Paul Cox paul.cox@wadac.org.uk or Simon Harvey year6@wadac.org.uk, for further information.
