Cup Final Information

Saturday 25th November 2017

Welcome to Sevenoaks School, Kent

We are pleased to welcome all athletes, teachers, officials and spectators for the 2017 English Schools' Athletics Association Cross Country Cup Final.

The competition is for Junior (under 14) and Intermediate (under 16) age groups. The local rounds of this competition started in October, with over 1680 teams from over 580 schools throughout England competing against other local schools in their County. The leading teams from the competitions held in each County then compete in one of 9 Regional finals in the first weeks of November. The National Final pits the leading 3 teams in each agegroup in each Region against each other.

Teams comprise 6 athletes with the first 4 runners counting towards the points total. In the event of a tie on points, the team whose 4th runner finishes higher takes precedence.

Course Venue

The Cup final is at Sevenoaks School, High Street, Sevenoaks, TN13 1HU.

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 Data Protection Act 1998.

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 They may not be published in any form (including on personal or club websites) without written permission from the ESAA.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publishing photos - most parents, and the Information Commissioner, would strongly agree that school activities should not be published unless publication is under strict control.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.
