Cup Final Information

Saturday 24th November 2018

Welcome to Woodbridge School, Suffolk

We are pleased to welcome all athletes, teachers, officials and spectators for the 2018 English Schools' Athletics Association Schools' Cross Country Cup Final being hosted by Woodbridge School by kind permission of the Head Master.

The competition is for Junior (under 14, normally Years 7/8 Pupils) and Intermediate (under 16, normally Years 9/10 pupils) age groups.

The local rounds of this competition started in October, with over 1500 teams from 500 schools throughout England competing against other local schools in their County. The leading teams from these competitions held in each County then compete in one of 9 Regional finals in early November.

The National Final pits the three leading teams in each age group in each Region against each other. In each race, for scoring purposes, School Teams consist of 6 runners with the best 4 scoring for their team.

Qualifiers to the Cup Final

The first 3 teams in each Regional Final qualify for the Cup Final. These teams will be handed an envelope containing a comprehensive Cup Final Information Pack. This includes a requirement for teams and reserves to be re-declared on this website by midnight on Tuesday 13th November. Teams MUST be redeclared so that athletes get allocated the correct numbers for the Final - we have a very tight deadline to produce the Cup Final programme to go to the printers so it is essential for Finalists to ensure that they meet this deadline.

Photographs and Videos

Photographs of ESAA events might be published in the athletics press, local media, and on this website. All ESAA photographs are taken in accordance with the guidelines relating to photos in schools    published by the Information Commissioner with regard to the General Data Protection Regulations 2018.

Photographs and videos can be taken by the public from public areas for personal use only. They may not be published in any form (including on personal or club websites) without written permission from the ESAA.

Most ESAA competitions are held on private land and are therefore deemed to be 'not public' areas. All ESAA events are SCHOOL events and are therefore covered by regulations governing what can and can't be done in schools. One important point therefore is that you are not allowed to take photographs of school activities for commercial publication without specific written permission from event organisers. This is no different to the fact that one cannot simply walk onto a school playing field and start taking and publishing photos - most parents, and the Information Commissioner, would strongly agree that school activities should not be published unless publication is under strict control.

Photographers at ESAA events wishing to publish photos in the media or in any other form (eg. internet websites), or wishing to use them for anything other than personal use must be officially registered and accredited by the ESAA, and register the use to which photos will be put, and to obtain permission for that use. Permission WILL be retrospectively withdrawn if anyone is found to be in breach of the uses which they registered with us, and under such circumstances, the offender will be required to delete all images they hold from our events.

This therefore precludes operators who simply turn up, make videos, then publish them with associated advertising which is outside of our control. No one has permission to do this unless they have written consent from the ESAA.

We are aware that some people register themselves as press photographers then publish complete videos of our events online, and even make their broadcasts available for sale. This is very specifically not allowed. In effect, they are broadcasting companies making television programmes without our permission. It doesn't matter how they publish their content, whether by television over the air or via the internet, or via DVD. The fact they broadcast our event content to the world makes them broadcasters.

To be an accreditted broadcaster for the ESAA, they need to be properly established companies, properly registered and regulated by the broadcasting authorities, and they need to be properly registered with the Information Commissioner. Also, in order to sell their content they need to have been given written permission to sell what is our copyright, and pay the necessary royalties due to us. They also need to comply with the UK Distance Selling Regulations in order to take payments from the public. There is also the very important fact that under the rules of UK athletics, televised athletics events in the UK need to be authorised by the UK Governing Body. The ESAA operates under these rules.

It is not possible to prevent photographs of any particular individual from appearing in the media. If this is a problem for you, you are advised not to take part in the event. If any parent wishes a particular picture of their child appearing on this website to be removed please contact us and we will do our best to resolve any problem.
