Imminent closing dates for schools cross country and indoor athletics championships
With restrictions on gatherings for sport now significantly eased, the fixture calendar is evolving rapidly, therefore it is important to check the annual fixtures page every two or three days so that you don’t miss out on any competitions you would like to participate in on or off track.
There are three imminent events scheduled outlined below, for schools cross country runners and our track and field indoor athletes across all age groups. The entry links are now open, with a very, very short turnaround time until entries close, so don’t miss out!
