scottishathletics are pleased to confirm antoher batch of qualifiers for our 4J National Finals Weekend
It was a great weekend at Pitreavie and performances there have led to to a number of athletes being invited to pre-enter for February 16-18.
Grangemouth will be the venue for the 4J National Finals Weekend.
We would now ask those athletes who have qualified from the events at Ayr and Pitreavie to complete the pre-entry process.
Congratulations to those athletes who have progressed and to their coaches and clubs. We look forward to the Scottish Championship events at Grangemouth.
Taking part in one of the Heat Weekends allows athletes to earn the opportunity to book a confirmed place for the Finals.
The top four finishers in each age group and gender in every Heat Weekend will be offered the chance to pre-enter the Final. Athletes will only be eligible to enter the event in which they have qualified (eg. qualification in 60m does not permit you to pre-enter the Long Jump).
The Finals Weekend is set to include semi-finals and finals on the track, and one pool in each field event.
Up to 12 places in each event will be made available to those who have qualified through a Heat Weekend (four from each of the three venues), and a small number of additional places per event will be available on a first-come-first-served basis to all other scottishathletics members (after the pre-entry period).
Qualifiers have until 5pm on Tuesday 6 February to secure their guaranteed place.
Should fewer than four athletes compete in an event in a Heat Weekend, or a qualifier not take up their offered guaranteed place, additional places will go on general sale to maintain the total entries.
Should the same athlete finish in the top four in more than one Heat Weekend, they will qualify only through the earliest heat. The fifth-placed athlete in the later heat will qualify instead.
Athletes taking part in multiple Heat Weekends may also earn qualifying places in multiple events. Athletes will be able to enter a maximum of 3 events during the Finals Weekend, and must choose them at the point of entry.
