Medals awarded to the top 3 in each category at the finish.
Overall team prize also, 4 athletes to score, so team could for example be 2 senior, 1 novice and 1 masters, or 4 novices.
and it would be possible to win more than 1 team prize if enough athletes from one club team took part.

Best Overall Club.
This year will see a perpetual trophy being awards for the Best Overall Club at the Cross Country Championships, so hoping for a bit of competition with bragging rights as to what club names gets on the trophy first.
