Senior and Junior Women's Teams (Bill Winter)

Selection Policy: The first 4 to finish in each race will be selected automatically, if they wish to be.  The remaining places will be selected taking account of performances in the Midland and English National Cross-Country Championships together with any other relevant performances.

The County has to make the entry by the 1st February 2019.  In the Senior race we can enter 15, 9 can run and 6 will score.  In the U20’s race we can enter 12, 8 can run and 4 will score.

 Please note that the U20 race in the UKCAU Inter-counties is run under IAAF rules and athletes must be under 20 at midnight 31st December 2019.  i.e. those born in 1999 or before are therefore too old.

 Please contact Bill Winter as soon as possible, but no later than Friday 11th January 2019.  Ideally, if you have the facility, please contact him by email if you are keen to be selected by L&RAA for the UK CAU Inter-counties XC on the 9th March 2019.

 Telephone:  0116 2363600                     Mobile:  07710 086063 Email:    w.winter@tiscali.co.uk      

Senior and Junior Men's Teams (Alan Maddocks)

Selection Policy: The first 4 Senior Men at the County XC (as in previous seasons) are automatically qualified for the team (subject to fitness/availability).

 The U20M are a special age group in that with the Inter-Counties XC being run under IAAF age groups this limits the eligible cohort to 50% of those who are UK Juniors. ... At the County XC the first 5 Juniors (actually 6 as one chose to run as a ‘Senior’) over the line are too old for consideration (i.e. born 1998/99). All those who ran last Saturday and are eligible (5 of them) and others who are eligible but did not run on Saturday have been contacted to ascertain interest/availability.

Alan has already been in touch with all Senior & U20M under consideration following the County XC Championships.   Email: striders1@hotmail.co.uk 

 

Under 17, Under 15 and Under 13 Male and Female teams

 The first THREE athletes to finish in the Leicestershire & Rutland County Championship race will automatically be selected for the final team.  The remaining athletes will be selected after taking account of performances in the Midland and English National Championships together with any other relevant performances.

The County has to make the entry by Friday 1 February 2019. In the U13, U15 and U17 races, twelve athletes will be entered, eight of whom will run on the day, with the first four finishers scoring for the team. If you are selected as a travelling reserve, you will be expected to attend the event.

 Please inform the team managers by 17th January if you wish to be considered for selection for the L&RAA at the UK CAU Inter-counties XC on the 9th March 2019  even if you have not been able to compete at the county championship.

County Cross Country Championships - 5th January 2019

The results are now on the Results page of this website

Any queries should be sent to the Event Secretary: davelodwick@gmail.com

 

  Junior Inter Counties Team Selection - 8th September - Harvey Hadden Stadium, Nottingham

Congratulations - See the results page for final information

The current selection policy was approved by Leicestershire & Rutland AA about eight years ago. It has proved successful in ensuring the best possible county team (we have won the competition 3 times in the past 8 years!). It has also led to new athletes joining county clubs when they previously had been more involved in other sports.  The selection process for the county teams is slightly different for this event as the competition is not part of the UKA (Counties Athletic Union) Inter County structure. Each of the seven counties have their own different selection policy and the details of the history and rules of the event are available on this link.

The policy is this: The top 2 ranked athletes for every event are selected. This includes the results from the County Schools competition as well as the Power of 10 rankings. The County School results are not always shown on the Power of 10 rankings. Not all events are hosted each year at the Inter county competition and this particularly affects the selection for field events and for middle distance races. For example there are no pole vault events and no triple jump; there is only one middle distance race for the Under 13s (which alternates in distance each year).

 The current manager is Kelly Phiri and she has managed and selected the team in ten previous years. She has always worked closely with the County Secretary, local clubs and she reports to the committee in the same way as other managers do. Very rarely or occasionally an athlete has been overlooked and the county association  encourages athletes/parents/coaches/clubs to contact Kelly or the association in such circumstances.

Leicestershire & Rutland AA County Cross Championships - 6th January 2018 - this event is closed and results are on the results page

 

County Team for Nuneaton - 9th September 2017

Leics & Rutland AA Team Manager, Kelly Phiri, has announced the team for the highly competitive inter county match next month. The specific events the athletes are doing will be announced in the week of the competition.

Congratulations to all the 65 athletes, their clubs, coaches and schools! Please make sure that Kelly knows where the athletes wish to be picked up (Loughborough or Leicester) and if they have any specific medical concerns. All athletes will be wearing county representative vests on the day.

If you would like to offer your help with organising the athletes on the day or on the coach or in any other way please contact Kelly or this website as soon as possible. 

 Once again we have a spread of athletes from six of the strongest athletics clubs in the county, together with athletes who live in Leicestershire but are from clubs outside the county.  We have county school athletes who are prominent in other sports but who love to compete in athletics too.

Well done to everyone! (list removed - see final results)

Injury and illness and excellent performances later in the season may change the selection list. Kelly will send information to all concerned as quickly as possible to ensure the best team is chosen for the county. The list on Facebook and above some names where we do not yet have the contact details for these athletes and would appreciate any help you can give if you know these people.

This year the county should have organised the event in Leicester. We were unable to find anyone to take this on and so Warwickshire have kindly done this for us in Nuneaton (although we are paying all the bills and organising the technical officials and helpers!!)
