Sports Night is a fun night for any child who likes to race and a serious competition for running enthusiasts.

As usual the event finishes with the Tom Holmes Gala Chase. The Chase is organised with Penistone Footpath Runners & AC Running Club and we are very grateful for their support.


Children's Events

Children's events start at 6.30pm. Children of all ages are invited to take part in a variety of races -egg and spoon, running, skipping, obstacle etc.


Races will be divided into PRE-SCHOOL Run for Fun and SCHOOL YEAR GROUPS, so listen out for your call.


If you want to join in with a race, you MUST be wearing appropriate footwear - eg, trainers or plimsolls, and sensible clothing, if the Stewards feel that you are unsuitably dressed you will not be allowed to take part for your own and other's safety.


Sports Night is generously sponsored by Daisy Chain Private Day Care.

Depending on numbers, we may need to run 'heats', however we realise that often the children are too young to understand this and they just know that they won their race, so this year we have decided to award rosettes for every race that is run.  So Oughtibridge Gala Rosettes will be presented to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in all races.

For the pre- school race, which is sponsored by Daisy Chain the children who win their 'heats' will run a final to determine who the overall winners are (boy and girl) and they will receive mini-trophies.  We will not run 'Finals' for any other races.



Parents' Events

Back again this year will be the Mums and Dads egg and spoon race!
