Entries close on June 19
Grangemouth stages a big weekend of athletics at the start of July with the Combined Events Champs and the Masters outdoor track and field Champs.
These three events will happen over the weekend of July 1/2 with the Masters in action on the Saturday and a special hurdles open graded event on the Sunday. The CE Champs are over both days.
scottishathletics are pleased to announce an additional aspect to that weekend – with a Sprint Hurdles Open Graded now part of the event.
We will offer sprint hurdle opportunities for all ages from U13 to Masters on Sunday 2 July at Grangemouth with that incorporated into the rest of the timetable that day. This includes races at 300m H and 400m H, as well as the short sprints.
Entries are being taken online for each of the three elements to the programme over that weekend and will remain open until June 19. No late entries will be accepted and there are no entries on the day for the championships or for the sprint hurdles open graded.
We see this as an ideal opportunity to try and help grow competitive opportunities in an event specific way and our sprint hurdles Open Graded follows on just over a month after the GAA Sprint/Hurdles Gala at Scotstoun on May 31.

Howard Bell and Holly McArthur both set Combined Events Scottish Records last year at Aberdeen at the Scottish CE Champs – before then going on to represent GB and NI.
This time, Grangemouth is the central Scotland location for what should be an eagerly-awaited weekend, with big numbers having competed in CE during the Indoor Season.
All age groups are catered for by this event which starts on Saturday 1 July with the remaining events happening the following day.

Our Masters athletes always relish the summer track and field championship opportunity – so Grangemouth will be the place to be for them on Saturday 1 July.
Medals are awarded in five-year age bands from V35 for this event but are subject to certain performance standards being met in each category.
