Popplewell Trophy 2020

To All Club Secretaries and Team Managers

The 2019/2020 Alton Sports Hampshire Cross Country League season finished some months ago and we ask you to take a little time to consider your club's nomination for the Popplewell Trophy.

The Trophy was purchased with monies donated by league clubs, in acknowledgement of the many years' work by Maureen and John Popplewell in establishing the league at its current strength.

The Trophy will be presented for outstanding achievement and to any person involved in the League: runners, team managers, coaches, officials and organisers (not committee members).

Please download the nomination form and return to Alan Ive (League Secretary), by post at
25 Manor Gardens, Southbourne PO10 8PA or using the email link below:

Important notice

In order to safeguard the health of league competitors, we request that details of any medical conditions (including asthma) should be submitted to the League for team members by the appropriate team manager for each club. This should preferably be done prior to the match but otherwise must be done on the day (but before the relevant race).

Secretary/Chairman

Registration of athletes

A reminder please that lists of competing athletes are needed for our records. We need to have correctly spelt names, dates of birth, age categories the athlete is running in and EA Registration Numbers for everyone intending to run for your club.

Also to remind clubs that they need to be affiliated to England Athletics before they can join the League.

On a personal note, a reminder about the Veteran age categories that we use (revised for 2019/2020):

  • Men:   M40, M50, M60 and M70
  • Women:   W40, W50, W60 and W70

In other words, ten year categories from when the athlete becomes a Veteran.

Thanks
Pam Rogers, Ladies results
