Posted on September 4th, 2013

The day was a success especially for the under 11’s. This is the 1st time that any events have been held for this age group. They could enter two events 75m and/or 600m and each athlete who entered was given a certificate.

New relay events were added this year including 3 x 1600m for seniors.

Overall numbers have been down this year and it is hoped that they will increase again in 2014 starting with the Indoor Championships.
