Just a follow on from Dick's earlier posting regarding East Wales qualification.
Today , I bumped into the East Wales Athletics officer at a regional school cross-country meeting, and he asked me to convey the following info.
Selection for East Wales qualification will be made from the Gwent league meeting at Bridgend this coming Sunday. Entry is £1 and forms can be obtained from team captains Lou & Mark, or collected on the day from the East Wales tent. East Wales will select teams in the U13 to senior age groups to represent the region in two matches;
Welsh Inter Regional Championships (Builth Wells, 12th December 2010)
UK Inter Counties Championships (Birmingham, 5th March 2011)
Selection will be made using the following criteria:
Welsh Inter Regional Championships;
All age groups = 15 to run. The first 6 from the East Wales Champs will gain automatic selection. All other selections will be made by studying current form in schools and club league matches etc.
UK Inter Counties Championships;
Based on last year, Junior age groups are 12 pre-entries, 8 to run. The first 5 from the Welsh Inter Regional Championships will gain automatic selection. For Senior men and Senior women, 15 pre entries, 9 to run. The first 4 from the Welsh Inter Regional Championships will gain automatic selection.
There are no masters races so masters will be considered for senior selection.
So if you're a Junior, Senior or Master, and fancy representing East Wales, come along to the Gwent League cross-country meeting this Sunday at Newbridge Fields, Bridgend.
