Worcester Relays Meeting – Saturday 20th April 2013

Worcester Athletic Club is having an invitational relays event at Worcester on 20th April 2013. They have chosen that date as it should be useful for practice for BUCS, YDL and other Leagues which are all in the couple of weeks following. A draft timetable is available at Worcester Relays Timetable at: http://www.bristolandwestac.org/downloads/track-and-field-competitions/open-meetings/ .
Team members don’t have to be from the same club or school / college for those of you who coach athletes from more than one club can enter composite teams. The organiser is also happy for coaches to get together to combine squads. The timetable isn’t set in stone and will be changed as required based on demand. Currently, the plan is for all events to be either a straight final, or where there are more than 8 teams, places based on heat times, other than the 4×100 metres where heats and finals are planned.

The cost will be £5 per team per event other than 2×200 metres which is £2.50 and has to be a male/female pairing. Effectively £1.25 per team member per event.

Age groups – there are only 2 – under-15 or senior, so under-17 and under-20 are seniors for this event. Under-13s can compete as under-15 in the 4×100 metre relay.

There should be a couple of University teams attending but it is expected that most teams will be from local clubs. For more information and to enter contact Mike Bennett at mikebennett78@googlemail.com .
