Please note that guest runners from outside the Poole & East Dorset area cannot win the league, but we happy for them to compete and help raise the overall standard of the races. Particularly fine performances were recorded in the Year 6/7 Girls’ category by N. Bissett (St. Leonard’s), in the Year 12/13 Boys’ age group by K. Hackett (Blandford) and by Z. Lamb (Blandford) in the Year 8/9 Girls’ category.

In all, 869 different children have competed (497 boys and 372 girls) while 363 competed at least three of the races (204 boys and 159 girls). This is a tremendous participation rate; my thanks to all staff in schools for encouraging their pupils to take part.

Thanks to the various authorities for allowing us to use our three non-school venues: Upton House, Sandbanks and Canford Park Arena, and to Ferndown Upper for staging the final race which incorporated the Poole & East Dorset Championships. Grateful thanks to colleagues who helped manage the large numbers of pupils at each of the races: Jerry Orme and Dave Kirk (timekeepers), Caroline Barrett (finish tickets), Fiona McKinley, Chris Branford and John Pallister (funnel), John James and Phil Burgess (course marking).

Details will be sent out soon to all those runners who are selected to represent Poole & East Dorset in the Dorset Schools’ Championships at King’s Park, Bournemouth, on January 22nd 2005. 

In addition, a small team representing the League will be competing in a cross country match in Brittany on Sunday 19th December.
