There is no limit on the number of athletes entered from a school in each race. Children can run as individuals and, if there are enough entrants from the same school, they can also form a team with the first 4 finishers counting towards the team score.

Medals will be presented after each race to the first 12 finishers. Once the full results are finalised, team medals will be awarded.

The races also serve as qualifiers to the Connacht Primary Schools Cross Country finals which take place in Loughrea on Wednesday, 11 October.

Following the Primary Schools races in Moyne, there will be races for Post-Primary Schools which are open to all schools in or outside Co. Longford:
