2018 Manchester International

Scotland head for the Manchester International next midweek for the now annual track and field match.

And we can now confirm selections for the event on Wednesday 14 August at the Manchester Regional Arena.

It’s three years since the pilot event saw Scotland send a team south for the first time and that was repeated again in the summers of 2017 and 2018.

The scottishathletics Track and Field Commission saw it as a second international opportunity in the year for our athletes to follow on from the traditional early-season Loughborough International in May.

Many congratulations to all these athletes selected and to their families and coaches – as well as the clubs involved in their development over many years.
