Junior Grand Prix

The Pendle & Burnley Junior Grand Prix was established in 2016 and is developing from strength-to-strength.

For 2017, the format hasn’t changed however age categories will follow the UKA/FRA age groups introduced this year.  The Championship is based on a minimum of 5 of the 9 races, regardless of the terrain discipline.

There will also be a Grand Prix Party & Presentation at the end of the Season.


Age Categories:
The age groups will be under 7s, 9s, 11s, 13s and 15s.   16 year old and above may run in senior races.
The groups are based on age on December 31st 2017.  This means if you turn 9 halfway through the year you are in the under 11’s from the start of the Grand Prix.
As a guide to age category, you can use the Junior’s year of birth:

If in doubt, as always please ask the organiser on race day or contact us.

Handy hints for new runners and parents:-

1- Please turn up early and give yourselves at least 30mins before the start of the child’s race so they can safely get to the start.

2- Please fill out forms correctly and fully!

3- If you think you are going to be in a rush then download a form and fill it in before race day.
