As always, we welcome participants of all ages and experiences to take part in a comprehensive track and field programme that ranges from the 60m sprint to the 5,000m run, regardless of sporting level.
Field events include high and long jump, shot put, discus and javelin. Organised in accordance with UK Athletics and the International Blind Sports Federation’s rules, the event is a great day out for everyone involved, including family and friends.
Don’t forget to attend the ‘Come and Try’ sessions from 10am that provides those who are new and existing participants of sport with a brilliant opportunity to try out running, jumping and throwing in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, supported by qualified coaches.
The main event gets underway at 12pm and throughout the day, you will be assisted by a team of qualified officials including official starters, scorers and judges as well as event commentary.
If participants have not taken part before and want to compete in the afternoon, improve their performance or just have a fun-filled sporty day out, then our Annual Metro Athletics Open is the place to do so.
