There will again be combined under17/under20 races to try and give these runners a larger field to compete in and a more visible identity.  For under 20 athletes who will be eligible under the age categories to compete as seniors at the Inter Counties the team managers will take this performance into account.  If any under 20’s wish to contest the senior race please state this on the entry form.  They would then not be included in the individual or team result for their age group.
