Monday 17th July 2022

Registration by 7.15pm – Prompt Start at 7.30pm

At Evesham Parkrun, Boat Lane (by Hampton Ferry), Evesham, Worcestershire, WR11 4BP.

  1. A Team shall consist of Six Runners, although a Team may consist of fewer than Six.
  2. All Runners MUST be 14 or over on the day of the event. If there is likely to be any doubt, to avoid embarrassment or possible disqualification, bring proof of age with you
  3. All Runners must reside in the Parish or Ward they are representing.  This is because it is an Inter-Parish Competition.  Where a Player resides between more than one Wychavon Parish or Ward, they may only play for the Parish or Ward in which they predominantly reside. Appearing on the electoral roll for a Parish does not in itself constitute residency.  If it is found that a Runner does not reside in the Parish or Ward they are representing, all points gained by the team in that event will be forfeited.
  4. Each Captain shall bring with him/her a list of all team members., which must be handed to the Organiser before the competition starts. This must include the full postal address, post code and signature of each team member. By signing the team sheet, the team member confirms that he/she is medically able to take part and is doing so at his/her own risk.
  5. If a Parish or Ward has entered but does not then take part, the Parish or Ward will be deducted 2 points unless the Parish Captain or Parish Organiser has given the event organiser a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of non participation.
  6. Only one race will take place.
  7. The distance will be 5km.
  8. On completion of the course, runners will enter a funnelled-off area to the finish, where numbered tags will be handed out. These tags must be put into the envelope handed to your captain on registration, with the total score entered on the front, together with the name of the Parish/Ward.
  9. Official Judges shall decide the respective places of each Parish. The Parish having the lowest aggregate shall be declared the winning Parish. In the event of a tie, the Parish whose last scoring Runner finishes nearest the first place shall determine the result.
  10. Parishes do not need to enter a full team, but a minimum of TWO runners must take part. Where a team has less than 6 runners, an additional score will be added for the missing competitors, eg if there are 69 competitors, an additional score of 70 will be added for each missing competitor.
  11. Any queries before the event should be made to Sue Collins on 01905 841269/07947 147030.
  12. Any Government rules re Covid in place at the time must be adhered to.
  13. Any protest must be submitted by the Team Captain to the Secretary – Sue Collins – within SEVEN days of the event taking place.
