Details and entry have just been released by NLL regarding the next Open Graded Meet which will take place at Wishaw Sports Centre on Wednesday 27 April, 2016 at 6.30pm. It should be noted that TRAINING IS CANCELLED ON 27th APRIL FOR ALL GROUPS EXCEPT THE SPRINT GROUP given that the Meet takes place at our usual training venue that night. An alternative training session will be available for the sprint group at the Bandstand, Strathclyde Park at 6pm.
This OG is a good opportunity for everyone to compete outdoors in familiar territory and we would encourage all athletes (including new and current non members) to take part in at least one event.
Events available are: 100m; 200m (U13+); 600m (U11s only); 800m; shot putt; long jump and high jump. Event times and further details, including how to enter, can be found here: https://www.q-buster.co.uk/
When registering online, you will be asked for your Personal Best (PB). If you have competed previously you can get this from Power of 10: http://www.powerof10.info or check with your coach. As usual, for track events, athletes are grouped into heats based on their PB and will compete with people of a similar ability.
Each event costs £3 to enter and it is appears to be PRE ENTRY ONLY by midnight on 25 April. Please arrive at least an hour before the start time of the event(s) you have entered to warm up and collect your race number. MAC coaches will be there to assist and support athletes as required.
Future OG Meet dates throughout the summer at Wishaw Sports Centre are already in the website calendar. These will take place on 8 June, 13 July, 10 August and 28 September. Event details will be added as soon as they are available.
Please speak to your coach if you have further questions. Thanks.
