Calendar -The Kent Schools' Athletic Association's Cross Country Championship takes place each year on a Saturday towards the end of January. It is usually two weeks after the Kent Championship (contested by club runners.)
How to Enter Next Time - Anyone interested in taking part should speak to their school PE teacher. Pupils are nominated by their school's PE Department to the District Coordinator.
Age Groups - The age categories are Year 7, Juniors (Y8 and Y9), Intermediates (Y10 and Y11) and Seniors (Y12 and Y13). These age groups are the same for all competitions sanctioned by the English Schools' Athletic Association.
Selection - Each district may select a maximum 16 boys and 16 girls in each category. An additional 4 boys and 4 girls in Y8 can also be selected. (This is to encourage more pupils to continue in the sport as they encounter two-year age bands for the first time.)
Kit - Spiked footwear is strongly recommended! Runners are representing both their own school and their school district, so will usually wear a school sports top. A few districts have their own sponsored kit, which all their competitors wear.
Distances - Race distances may vary slightly due to different course characteristics, but range from approximately 2400m for Year 7 girls, up to 7200m for Senior Boys.
Kent Selection - Pupils performing well will be asked to declare whether they are available to represent Kent Schools at the Schools' Inter-Counties (usually two weeks later.)
There is a further Inter-Counties competition - for Year 7 and Year 8 pupils only - in March.
English Schools - The first four finishers in each race (apart from Year 7) will also be automatically selected to represent Kent at the English Schools' Cross Country Championship. Further selection criteria determine the remainder of the county squad selections.
