Just a few days to go before our somewhat unique event, hoping the weather holds up. We have over 100 athletes entered so lets make it a fun safe and enjoyable day out for all.
A few notes for your information and to assist with the smooth running of the event, hopefully the restrictions will not prevent everyone from enjoying the day, Please share amongst your club and parent comms groups. The following schedule is a guide, this event is somewhat unique in terms of age group mixes and the specific competition events so we've laid it out as sensibly as we can, but I would ask for your patience if there are some gaps in the proceedings. The format is generally U14-15-16 starting with sprints then shot, then long jump then 800. U17-19 will be: sprint to long jump to shot to 800m.
Would hope to thave the entire event wrapped up by about 1:30PM - 2:00PM
