If there is a significantly prolonged delay, a coaches meeting will be called and a decision about proceeding will be agreed.


The College has excellent security. However, coaches should ensure all valuables are stored away safely and remain in the tents provided for each school.


There will be food available to purchase from a variety of vendors on the day.


Schools should remind all players to bring a water bottle that can be refilled from the water dispensers provided. There will also be a refreshment stall available to all participants, staff and parents.

Medical treatment

There will be paramedics on hand throughout the tournament. In addition to this, Marlborough nurses will assist in treating the players. In the event of a serious injury participants will be taken to Gleneagles Hospital, therefore, coaches require all necessary player contact details and documents for insurance purposes. Players without insurance must have adequate funds to cover any expenses incurred.

(i.e. Boy/Girl in U9, U11, U13, U15, O15, age groups).


Medals for the top 5 runners in the winning team in each category.



Each runner receives points equal to the position they finish, during the race (e.g. 1st place = 1 point).

The team score is figured by tabulating the team’s first five finishers’ points. The lowest score wins.

In the event of a tie, the position of the last-placed scoring runner shall determine the result.

Teams should be able to finish at least five runners to score. If the fifth runner is unable to finish, the fifth score will be that of the place following the final finisher in the race e.g. if there are 50 runners, the fifth score to be added is 51 points.
