The third of our summer Throws Grand Prix Series events will take place in Livingston on Saturday 24 June.
There was strong support for the last event in Inverness last month but unfortunately poor weather that weekend didn’t make it easy for athletes or Officials.
Now we are taking entries online across a range of events for June 24 back at Craigswood, Livingston, and know a number of athletes and coaches (and Officials) are already making plans to compete and attend.
Entries close a week before the event, so please make sure you enter now if you want to compete in the third of four events, with the remaining event thereafter also at Livingston.
