Background

The Junior Interregional Championships is an annual competition between the twelve Junior Regional Squads. First organised by YHOA in 1989 the competition is organised in rotation by the 12 Regional Associations.
For many years it took place in late June but has recently changed to the early autumn.
The competition consists of an Individual race on the Saturday followed by a Relay on the Sunday.
An agreed scoring system determines the winner on each day and the overall winner.

Teams

Each region enters a team made up of up to 4 M/W14’s, 16’s and 18’s – a total of 24 athletes. The relay teams are made up of one M/W16 plus one M/W14 plus one M/W18. being 8 teams in all per Region.

Accommodation

Every effort is made to accommodate the teams in one location. The hosts arrange for dinner on the Saturday and a breakfast and packed lunch on the Sunday.
Accommodation is usually on the floor of a sports hall or in somewhere like an army barracks.
