If you are looking for a  Sprints PB this  summer ,another  local opportunity in addition to  available Open Gradeds . Details of  the Glasgow Athletics Association  Sprints & Hurdles Gala at Crownpoint Stadium.

Taking place on Wednesday 27th July 2016 at Crownpoint Sports Complex, just a few weeks before the Scottish National Senior and Age Group Championships, the GAA Sprint Gala is offering athletes the opportunity to taper their season leading in to the championships with high quality competition on the former 2014 Commonwealth Games Track, over Sprint Hurdles / 100m / 300m / and 400m.

Sprint Hurdles races will be offered to U17 Men (100m Hurdles) and U17 Women (80m Hurdles). 300m races will be offered to U15 Boys & Girls, & U17 Women, with the 400m races to U17 Men and upwards. 100m races are open to all age groups. Entries should be made through: www.q-buster.co.uk/gaa-sprint-gala

The total number of potential athletes is around 200 spaces in the meeting, running from 7pm – 9pm. These will be issued on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis – once they are gone, entries will close, so please enter early to secure your place. We will operate a waiting list if events fill up, athletes are advised to inform us if they are no longer able to compete.

The GAA will be offering a Prize Pot on the night to the overall fastest in each of the men’s and women’s events IF they break the following target times:

U17 Hurdles: £50, Men – 14.00, Women 11.70

If one athlete achieves the time he/she will claim the total prize pot for their event. If more than one winner achieves the times, it will be split equally.

Actually,  this has been an aspiration of the GAA for a good while  and Josephine Moultrie, GAA Administrator, has done a great job setting this up. Well worthy of support form Athletes and Coaches in the West if you are after that PB.
