Jumpers and throwers will gather again this weekend for the latest of our event specific competitions.
It’s the third of the scottishathletics Jumps and Throw GP meetings on Sunday and this time the venue is the redeveloped facility at Caird Park in Dundee.
Previous visits to Inverness and Grangemouth were a success and now just over 100 athletes are expected to compete on Tayside looking for Personal Bests or Season Best performances – with national championship events coming up in August.
We wish good luck to all our competitors and say thanks for your support. Similarly, we are extremely grateful to our scottishathletics Officials and their commitment to these GP events.
All the key info around pools and timetable is on the link at the start of this piece.

Alyson is joined in the sprints by Sarah Malone, also a National Record breaker this season in the 4x100M. The 400m will see Brodie Young and Kyle Alexander taking advantage of the opportunity to race against some of the top UK men over one lap.
Emily Craig, who gained her first Scottish Senior vest at Loughborough goes in the 400 hurdles and Stacey Downie, multiple Scottish title winner sprinter opens her season the 400M.
In the Jumps Miraji Ahmed returns to competitive action in the Triple Jump and Reuben Nairne will enjoy strong opposition in a competitive men’s vault
Molly Reville, top ranked U20 lines up against a strong field in the women’s long jump and Courtney MacGuire will look to build on strong early season performances.
The team are delighted to welcome javelin thrower Adam Boyle, who returns to competition after a break from the sport and Dawn Russell, who is second ranked U20 in the javelin and hammer.
The clash with the GAA Miler Meet in Glasgow has had an impact on those middle-distance runner available for selection but Lauren Stoddart and Emily McNicol will be strong point scorers in the Steeplechase.
