Currently there are no plans for any races before Xmas at the earliest. With many parts of Bradford experiencing increased lockdown restrictions, it is unlikely schools would be able to bring mixed groups of pupils to our events. One it is safe to do so we will review if races are possible in the New Year.
As an alternative in the meantime, below are certificates that can be printed out for all those who finished in the top 3 positions.
Take care and stay well everybody.

Trophies and medals for individuals and teams that finished in the top 3 have now been ordered. Unfortunately with the closure of schools at the end of the week it is unlikely I will be able to distribute these via schools.
Once I have received the trophies I will announce on here and for any individual that would like to collect their trophy I will put details on here of how to get in touch.
In the meantime take care, stay well, try to get out and exercise if you can, especially now the weather is getting warmer.
Final results from Race 4 at Silsden along with photos from all the races are now on the race page.
Very provisional results from Race 4 at Silsden. Maybe some typos and no late additions added in yet. Will update later today.

Selected teams and individuals that have made it through to the West Yorkshire finals will be notified once the results have been checked and verified.
Congratulations to Ermysted’s Grammar School, a regular competitor in our league, which has been chosen to represent English Schools at the 2020 ISF World Cross Country Championships in Slovakia with their Senior Boys team. This a great honour for them as the event only takes place every two years and they have been chosen from schools all over the country. Their selection follows on from them winning the English Schools Cross Country at Sevenoaks School in 2017 with their Intermediate Boys team and then winning the prestigious King Henry’s Relays in 2019 and in the process setting a new course record.
Having been selected to attend Ermysted’s must now raise the money for its boys to attend as they have to pay their own travel and accommodation to attend the event. As a long time participant in the league, we will be making a donation from this years race fees to help them with their fund raising.
If anyone would like to make a donation toward their trip you can contribute via this link.
A new page showing all individual and school champions by year has now been added so that it is easy to track the progress of some of the more talented athletes that have competed in the league.
Preliminary results from race 2 are now available. Just a few errors left, mainly people that ran in wrong race.
