GAA GLASGOW MILER MEET – DAY OF 3Ks
(Incorporating the scottishathletics 3000m Championships)
Emirates Arena, 1pm till 4pm, Saturday 3 January 2015
First of all, the Glasgow Athletics Association would like to say a massive ‘thank you’ to the Scottish endurance community in reaching over 200 entries for the GAA Miler Meet Day of 3ks (incorporating the scottishathletics 3000m Championships).
This is an exceptional response and the clubs, coaches and athletes who are have taken up this opportunity should be congratulated for their support of this key endurance fixture.
We are all hoping for a fantastic afternoon of endurance running which will build a platform to develop the event even further in future years.
Entry to the facility:
Entry to the Meet will be via Level 3 at the Emirates Arena. Declarations and Spectator Entry will take place in the concourse area. The West side trackside seating will be available for spectators.
All heats have been seeded after careful consideration of PBs, SBs, current form, recent results (recorded on Power of 10) and predicted performances.
Will be open from 12 noon and we expect athletes to declare at least one hour before their race. Final declarations will be at 2pm.
Assembly will be at race start 10 minutes before your race is due to start. The races will start on time – we will not wait for you or come and look for you – it is your responsibility to be there at the right time.
Could all coaches and athletes be very aware that for the electronic timing to function we have photo finish in operation at the finishing line.
While we are keen that athletes get the opportunity to warm up as easily as possible, it is crucial that athletes do not run through the line while a race is in process as this can disrupt the photo finish system and cause problems with the results.
Medals will be awarded to the fastest three athletes in each age group (U17, U20, Senior and Vets), regardless of what heat they have been seeded in (and provided the appropriate merit standard has been achieved.)
Athletes – Free admission
Coaches – Free admission (with their coaching pass)
