Each participating school should provide an adult representative (e.g. teacher or parent) at each round to register and pick up their runners’ race numbers. The race number must be safety-pinned to the front of the runner's vest or t-shirt.
- Medals will be awarded to the first three finishers in each race
- The finishing positions of a school's first three runners will count towards the team score in each race
- A team's best three scores over the four rounds will count towards the team's overall finishing position
- A runner's best three finishing positions over the four races will count towards their overall score at the end of the series
Please note: due to the cancellation of the January 19 2013 fixture, final standings are based on runners' and teams' best two scores over the three rounds that went ahead.
