  • Coiners weather forecast.
  • From 2013 the maximum race distance limits for junior runners will be determined by age on race day.
    See the FRA website and Handbook for full details of the change to Rule 10 (UKA Rule 410).
    Race organisers remain free to define their own age groups, although the majority have always aligned them with the championship age groups, i.e. U12 - U18 based on age on 1st January 2014.

Rules

Official full rules, regulations, and lists of awards for the 2014 FRA English Junior Championship can be found in the 2014 FRA Handbook, which is available to FRA members.
The following extracts are only for the convenience of entrants, and should not be used as the basis for any dispute or protest.

Categories (2014):
The following definitions apply to the FRA English Junior Championship races.
Age groups are based on the competitor's age on 1st January 2014.
  • Under 12 and over 10 Boys and Girls - born between 2/1/2002 and 1/1/2004.  (3 Km)
  • Under 14 and over 12 Boys and Girls - born between 2/1/2000 and 1/1/2002.  (5 Km)
  • Under 16 and over 14 Boys and Girls - born between 2/1/1998 and 1/1/2000.  (7 Km)
  • Under 18 and over 16 Boys and Girls - born between 2/1/1996 and 1/1/1998.  (10 Km)
This makes a total of eight age categories. Please note:
  • Age on day of race determines the maximum race distance for junior (6 years - 17 years) runners in all FRA permitted and insured junior and senior races. (See FRA Rules for Competition).
  • Any breach of Rule 10 (UKA Rule 410) by an organiser and/or junior runner may result in formal disciplinary action by the FRA acting on behalf of UKA.
  • This rule does not define and never has defined age groups. It only states maximum permitted distances.
    Therefore the change has no effect on the organisation of junior races, but makes eligibility clearer for senior races.
  • As before, an organiser of non championship junior races may use any criteria to define age groups, provided the youngest potential runner in each race does not exceed their maximum permitted distance.
    However, the majority of organisers choose to align their races with the championship age group rules above.
Championships Scoring:
  • All competitors must register with the FRA Junior Co-ordinator by completing in full the race entry form at championship rounds.
  • The first 49 competitors in each age category will score points towards the age category championship; 50 for 1st, 48 for 2nd, 47 for 3rd, 46 for 4th, ...., 1 for 49th.
  • Points are allocated according to the positions (not times) in the final race results.
  • If there is a tie on position in a race then both runners will be allocated the same points for the relevant position e.g. 4th= receives 46 points.
  • Up to the best 4 scores from the 7 selected races will count towards the final positions.
  • The competitor with the highest cumulative score from her/his best 4 scores from the 7 championship races will be the winner.
