Thanks to everyone who responded to the recent Facebook poll and those who commented on plans for this year’s Worcestershire County Track and Field Championships.
Following the recent committee meeting it was agreed that the championships will now be held on SUNDAY 12th MAY (rather than Saturday 11th). The meeting will take place at Stourport Sports Club.
Other changes for 2019 include:
- There will be a quadrathon for Under 11s – comprising a Vortex Howler throw, 60m, Long Jump and 600m.
- The Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15 age groups will be solely for Worcestershire, but for Under 17s and older there will be combined Herefordshire AND Worcestershire events.
Entry fees will be set at £4 per event. There will be NO reduction for multiple events.
If there is a demand for events that are normally not staged (such as Steeplechase or 5000m) then please let Keith know!
Entry forms should be on the Worcestershire Athletics Association website by March and the entry deadline will be roughly two weeks before the championships.
All athletes taking part (expect Under 11s) MUST be registered with England Athletics for the 2019 season.
Many thanks to Keith Perry for providing this update.
