There’s a busy weekend ahead as the summer track and field season for 2022 begins in earnest.
We’re at three venues to deliver the 4J Studios District Champs and National Outdoor Opens.
And with around 1300 athlete names on start-lists for the events at Grangemouth, Inverness and Kilmarnock it is sure to be busy with the action stretching from Friday evening in the Highlands to late Sunday afternoon in Central Scotland and Ayrshire.
There are Live Results links available for Grangemouth and Kilmarnock. Results from Inverness will be loaded after each day of competition (on Friday and Saturday).
We want to thank in advance staff at the three venues and all our local volunteers as well as, importantly, our team of dedicated scottishathletics Officials.
Well done to the following clubs in particular for a great response: Orkney, Shetland, Inverness Harriers, North Ayrshire AC, Shettleston Harriers, Inverclyde AC, Banchory and Stonehaven, Harmeny AC.
Our resources are stretched this weekend, clearly, and we’re grateful for those clubs who responded to our appeals for volunteers helpers to assist our Officials this weekend.
Here are links to key details at the three venues . . .
Grangemouth – Saturday and Sunday: East District Champs U13/U15/U17 and Outdoor Opens Sprints and Jumps (Seniors and U20s)
