Entries in the middle distance events are at their highest levels for a number of years, particularly for Senior Boys. As a result it will be necessary to run heats in both the Open Boys 2000m Steeple Chase and in the Senior Boys 3000m which have not been required for some years. These heats will occur in the Saturday afternoon and Saturday Evening Sessions. Please check the timed programme, which will be available on the website early on Monday, for the placement of these heats.

Individuals who are currently entered in both of these events or combinations of 800m or 1500m with them should take this into account when making final decisions prior to Wednesday’s scratchings deadline.

Sprinters should also take note that a quarter finals round will be needed in all 200m grades except the Senior Girls at this stage.
