Just a reminder that the Sportshall County Championships are on this Sunday, 15th November, at Dawlish. The timetable is amended (see link below) which is the same as used in previous years. 11am start and there are allocated times for presentations of medals. In addition there will be no non-scoring relays. The cost of entry is slightly higher, £3, to cover medal costs.
We have received details from Sportshall Athletics of the Regional events in February and there is to be a change to the Obstacle relay.
The forward/sideway roll has been discontinued and replaced by a bean bag change (see below) This change will be implemented at Dawlish to give athletes the opportunity to trial the changes.
Obstacle Relay, Over / Under Relay and Grand Prix
Following extensive discussions with England Athletics we will be trialling an alternative to the forward/sideways rolls at the start of the Obstacle Relay, Over / Under Relay and Grand Prix. These races will be started from a standing position (the same as the Hurdles Relay) with a bean bag change in place of the shoulder tap (all athletes will start from a standing position). This change is for the Under 11s races and Under 13s Obstacle Relay. Following the trial we would appreciate all feedback.
