IMPORTANT: To be able to represent Team Enfield at the London Youth Games X-Country event, you need to either live in, or go to school in the Borough of Enfield.

We will choose the team based on the fastest times submitted for a:

  • 5km Parkrun for age categories U13, U15 & U17 – or another established, timed and recorded 5km run that can be verified against
  • 2km Junior Parkrun for age category U11
  • For age category U11, if you took part in the Schools Cross Country event at Forty Hall on Friday 6th October, you may submit your placing e.g. 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. as an alternative to taking part in a Junior Parkrun.

To submit your interest, you need to do the following;
