Up until a few years ago these races were run as a road race that took place on the morning of the Stroud half marathon; this year we are trialing a cross country version with the hope that it will be an annual event to include the children in the festivities of the Half Marathon.
The race will be using the lower sports field at Marling School, GL54HE with either 1 or 2 laps depending upon the race.
There will be 3 races taking place between 09:15 and 09:45 on Sunday 27th October whilst the Half Marathon takes place.
U13 – 09:15 – Silver Mile Race 1 – 35 places
U11 – 09:30 – Silver Km (min age is 8 years old on race day) – 50 places
U15 – 09:45 – Silver Mile Race 2 – 35 places
There will be medals for all competitors.
The cost of the race is:
£5 for non UKA Affiliated Juniors
£3 for UKA Affiliated Juniors
There are limited spaces for this years events and race entry is online through the Full on Sport website here.

If you are unsure whether you can compete within a certain age group (u11, u13, u15, u17, u20 etc) then the following guidelines taken from the UK Athletics Rules for Competition (Rule 107) will help determine which age group is applicable.
(1) The Competition Year shall extend from 1st October to 30th September in the following year.
Under 11 Boys and Girls (School Years 4 and 5)
UK Athletics Rules do not specifically cater for athletes under the age of 11 years. This does not necessarily preclude provision by organisers of competitions for events for athletes younger than 11 years, with correspondingly reduced distances to be run and lighter implements to be used.
Under 13 Boys and Girls (School Years 6 and 7)
Track and Field competition for Under 13’s shall be confined to competitors who are aged 11 or 12 on the 31st August within the Competition Year, as defined in (1) above.
Under 15 Boys and Girls (School Years 8 and 9)
Track and Field events for Under 15’s shall be confined to competitors who are aged 13 or 14 on 31st August within the Competition Year, as defined in (1) above.
