A brochure giving details of the 2013 Track & Field Cup competition was posted to schools sometime towards the end of November,
and it is also published online here (Event Details). The posted copy of the brochure contains a security code to enable
you to access the online entry form.
If you don't receive a brochure by Mid-December you can use the
contact the ESAA facility on the main menu to request us to send it to you. Please don't ask
before then, please wait for the brochure to arrive. Naturally, we won't send security details to just anyone - you must give a school email address
on the contact form so that we can verify who you are, but if we can not do so we will telephone your school directly.
Online entries will open mid-November, with a closing date of 28th February 2013.
Note that you cannot login via the competition progress link using previous year's login details, those details are not carried
over from one year to the next. You need to ENTER your teams
first via the online entry form link - you set up your email address and password for this competition when you fill in the entry form.
