Welcome to the dedicated site for the Leicestershire Primary Schools’ Cross Country league. Through this site you can find all necessary information relating to races, as well as results for all races.
Welcome to the 2014 Primary Schools cross country League –the biggest in the UK – and a big thank you and welcome to our sponsors THULE who have enabled us to improve the infrastructure of the events. Thanks to their kindness we have been able to upgrade our PA system which hopefully will improve communication on the day of events and we have also been able to invest in some new lighter weight fencing which makes life easier for our volunteers who set up the course. On top of that there are the important but dull parts such as more cones and traffic management equipment for the car park which THULE have also helped provide. THULE has also been most generous in providing a brand new trailer for transporting the huge amount of kit that makes up the event. We are most grateful for their generosity.
You may notice that there is a slight change in dates this year and that the final match is not on the first Saturday of the month, we have brought the date of this one forward to avoid clashing with the secondary schools event as, of course, many parents have athletes running in both competitions. Please make a note of this change.
All events that we have been involved in this year have seen huge increases in numbers and we expect our league to also reflect this. For those that have been before you will already know that arriving early is paramount, if this is your first visit, the first event is always very busy and we will be expecting to process around 1200 cars in the space of the first hour. Please arrive in really good time to make sure that you have time to park and get your young athletes , orientated and warmed up.

Please get your affiliation in as soon as you can and get your teams training!
We are aware that sometimes it is not possible to get a cheque raised in time for the first event. Don’t worry – we don’t want ANYONE excluded from this fantastic event. Just arrive on the day with your team and arrange payment later, it will help with our planning though if you could let us know in advance that you are coming!
