Linwood to host GAA Miler Meet; Inter-Counties chance for young hill runners

Tuesday 1st June 2021

Athlete Guidance Document for GAA Miler Meet Linwood

The GAA Miler Meet scheduled for this Friday night has been moved to a new venue at Linwood.

Organisers are very keen to make the event happen and have been looking at arrangements because of Level Three Covid-19 restrictions in Glasgow.

Documents lodged above and below give all the details about the rearranged meet and all those competing are asked to read these carefully.

It’s important everyone familiarises themselves with the plans for the event in order for the timetable of planned 800m and 3000m races to operate smoothly.

The GAA advise, too, that they will email out a link to all athletes details for chaperones/coaches to register if they plan to attend on Friday (for track and trace reasons).

There has been a brilliant response in terms of entries received once again and everyone is looking forward to a great series of competitive races on the night.

*Anyone who has not yet paid their race entry should bring the £12 to registration at Linwood on Friday night.

Timetable Friday 4 June
