Return travel

We hope to leave Temple Newsam soon after 16:00, athletes will have an opportunity to contact parents during the return trip.

Important information

All athletes must travel to the Championships on the coach provided. This allows us to declare the team on arrival. However, once they have competed and provided they have informed the management team on the day, athletes are free to travel home with parents.


Vests and shorts will be provided

We are very aware that many find the shorts uncomfortable. You may wish to wear your own shorts under the provided Humberside shorts or provide your own. If you provide your own shorts (and wish to only wear your own shorts) these must be mid/royal blue not navy blue (or black or any other colour)!.

Should you choose the latter, they must be checked with your team manager to ensure that they comply with our declared colours.

All visible clothing must be county colours i.e. yellow and royal blue...this also applies to t-shirts worn under vests.

Items required on the day:

  • 4 safety pins for your number
  • Food and drinks for the day
  • Warm and waterproof clothing for before and after your race – “wellies” for walking the course!
  • Money if you wish to buy souvenir clothing
