Mid Summer Open Graded Track & Field Events in July

Hello all,

Every Wednesday in July, Cheltenham Harriers host an evening open track and field meeting, at the Glos AC' Blackridge track. The events are graded so if you enter you will be asked for your expected time / distance so they can put you in races/events with other similar standard athletes.

The first event is 6:30pm and the last should be finished about 9pm. There are different events each week and some of the popular ones are repeated:

July 3rd events

Track : U11+ 600m; U13+ 200m, 1500m

Field : Javelin, Long Jump

July 10th events

Track : sprint hurdles for U13+, U11+ 100m and U15+ 3000m (NB must be able to do sub 12:30 for 3k)

Field : shot put, discus

July 17th events

Track : U11+ 800m; U17+ 5,000m (NB must be able to do sub 22:00 for 5k)

Field : high jump, Long Jump, hammer

July 24th events

Track : U11+ 100m, U15+ 300 & 400m, U13+ Mile, U17+ 300 & 400m hurdles, 2k and 3k steeple chase

Field : Javelin, Triple Jump, Shot put

These events would suit our more mature Juniors group (9 year olds plus), all Teens group members, plus all senior members who want to go a bit quicker than usual.

If anyone, wants to try out an event, please let me know and I will give you some advice on how to preapre so you can have fun and not get injured. Hence, why I haven't mentioned the Pole Vault!
