All set for our 4J National Open as athletes chase top performances

Thursday 19th January 2023

Key info for 4J National Open

The Emirates Arena will be centre stage this weekend as our 4J Indoor Season dominates the agenda – with more than 1000 athletes set to compete over two days.

We are expecting around 700 athletes for the 4J National Open on Saturday and then on Sunday it is the turn of our U12s, with 28 clubs having entered names for 500 of our youngest athletes to take part in the 4J SUPERteams

The 4J National Open often marks the first indoor performance of the year for many athletes as they look to put a marker down ahead of Scottish or British championships in the coming weeks.

There are no podiums at the Open with the event placing an emphasis on performance and participation, rather than a 1-2-3 in each event.

Nonetheless, glancing through Start Lists, it will be exciting to look out for the likes of Lynsey Sharp, Jenny Selman, Mhairi Hendry, Sarah Calvert, Nikki Manson, Alyson Bell, Murray Fotheringham, Tehilla Ikechukwu Okonkwu, Kelsey Stewart, Maria Lyle, Ben Sandilands, Corey Campbell, Andrew Murphy, Krishawn Aiken, Reuben Nairne and Teddy Tchoudja.
