FRIDAY 12 NOON UPDATE:
The scottishathletics District Championships are now very much part of the early-season track and field calendar – and we’ve already had hundreds of entries for the 2017 version.
But there is still time to use the online entry system and put your name forward for the events, as three venues play host to the East, West and North District Champs over 12/13 May.
It’s Friday night and Saturday at all three venues again this year, with the North having featured that schedule for the first time 12 months ago.
Inverness stages that event with Grangemouth the venue for the East District Champs, while the Ayrshire Athletics Arena in Kilmarnock plays host to West athletes.
Entires are open via the online process until midnight on Sunday night (April 30). No late entries will be considered and there are no entries on the day at the District Champs. These championships are for all age groups from U13 through to Seniors. Masters athletes compete as the Seniors.
It is the perfect chance to post a PB, reach a final or even get on the podium so, please, make sure you don’t miss out.
