About image
The National Primary and Cross Country Finals were first held in 2015 at Belvoir Castle and attracted around 800 entries. By 2019 the event had moved to Prestwold Hall in the heart of the Leicestershire Countryside and touched record entries.
The 2020 edition was heading for even higher numbers but of course we all know what happened then.......A cautious return took place in 2021 before returning to Prestwold Hall in 2023 with entries heading towards1500.

WE MAKE A WELCOMED RETURN TO PRESTWOLD HALL FOR 2024. 
Contractual issues with other business's working from the estate mean for this year that we are forced to move to a Sunday. It is very much hoped that this will be resolved for future events.

  • Entries are now open on the following link ; https://www.stuweb.co.uk/events/2024/03/03/4351/ 
  • The pre-order souvenir hoodie facility is now closed. There will be a limited number available on the day with a home delivery facility also available in case we run out. We are reducing waste wherever we can!

                    QUALITY APPROPRIATE COMPETITION FOR ALL AGE GROUPS FROM YEAR 3 - 7

                                         BRIDGING THE GAP TO ENGLISH SCHOOLS FOR YEAR 7
