Jaffa Junior Relay 2021

Attention all parents / guardians!

The IPSWICH JAFFA JUNIOR BOURNE RELAYS (VIRTUAL) takes place from 15th – 17th October.

This is a great event for Kruisers Juniors to participate in and for Suffolk interclub communities! If you wish to submit an entry on behalf of your child please read below, follow the link and also spread the word!

The Ipswich Jaffa Junior X Country Relays 2021 are to remain virtual due to the current uncertainty around COVID-19 and the use of council parks for private events.

Entrants must be no younger than age 9 on Friday October 15th and no older than 17 on 1st September. Runners will have 3 days to complete the challenge from 9am Friday 15th October till 5pm Sunday 17th October.

Teams will be determined by our Club Captains based on the number of entrants. Team categories include Boys, Girls and Mixed teams covering ages U11, U13, U15 and U17. We may need runners to compete in a higher age group depending on numbers. U11 and U13 legs are 2km each, U15 and U17 legs are 3km each. Additional rules are detailed in the below link.

Last years event was the largest since it’s inception and raised £500.00 for the charity “FIND”. Again this year Ipswich Jaffa and it’s neighbouring running clubs are hoping this event will be just as rewarding for it’s runners and charity.

Ipswich Jaffa ask for a small donation of £1.00 from each runner, but this is not compulsory to enter the event. An announcement on the events charity will be made soon.
