Northamptonshire Sport Launch Women’s Tour Competitions

On Wednesday 7th June, The Women's Tour returns to Northamptonshire for the 4th consecutive year, hosting Stage 1 of the 5 stage tour with the route starting in Daventry, and finishing once again in Kettering.

Last year, we ran some competitions to engage school children in the build up to the arrival of the Women's Tour and once again we will be running the same competitions.

For Secondary schools, the competition is to "Design a start flag" is open to those in years 7-9. The flag design should reflect one of the following:

  • Northamptonshire and the local community
  • Women's Sport
  • Celebration of Culture and Sport
  • Women's Cycling

The winner will have their flag made up into a real life flag, and will be invited to start the race with the chosen dignitary, using the flag they designed. The winner must be available to do this on the morning on Wednesday 7th June 2017. Last year's winner was Kate from Prince William School, Oundle.

For Primary Schools, the competition is to "Design a Women's Cycle Jersey" and is open to those in yrs 3-6.

The Jersey design should reflect one or more of the following:

  • Northamptonshire and the local community
  • Women's Sport
  • Celebration of Culture and Sport
  • Women's Cycling

Last year's winner was Caitlin from St Patricks in Corby. The winner will get their jersey made up and will present it to the stage winner at the end of the race on Wednesday 7th June in Kettering at approximately 2.30-3.30pm. There will also be around 17 runners up places in this competition, each of whom will get the chance to be a team mascot at the start of the race on Daventry on Weds 7th June 2017. All t-shirt and flag templates can be found at www.northamptonshiresport.org/cultural-competitions
