Timed Programme & Traffic Information

2 December 2015 12:08pm

Update: The timed programme has been updated. Changes and possible changes are highlighted in yellow. ‘Out’ means the heats, quarters or semi finals are not required and the highlighted numbers mean there has been a change in the number of heats.

The timed programme is now available. Please note the Open Girls and Boys 300m Hurdles and the Junior Boys 100m hurdles are unlikely to require semi finals but this will be confirmed at the managers’ meeting. The 1st round heats will be run at heat time not semi final time.
