Program for West Cork Athletics Track & Field was agreed last night at the AGM.
Link to full program and order of the day for both days is below.
Dates are Sun 7th April with an 11am start and Sat 13th April with a 12noon start.
One of the changes this year is in relation to the 3km event.
This year there will be a team aspect to the race, so as well as medals for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed athletes, there will also be team prizes with scoring using the same criteria as Cross Country. 3 athletes to score, 4 team medals available
Hoping this might encourage some road runners to take a turn on the track and would hope that we see a number of teams involved.
Another change was in relation to adding a Javelin for Boys and Girls U13 on the 1st leg.
This is NOT to be used as a training exercise and athletes taking part in the Javelin are expected to have practiced within their clubs, athletes who are not throwing safely will be removed from the competition.
Well done to everyone who took part in the West Cork Athletics road races today in Dunmanway.
Some close races in fantastic conditions.
