VETERANS LEAGUE, Western Division

If you have not heard of it, the Vets Athletics is an opportunity for those of us older than 35 to participate in organised track and field events (100m through to 5k running, 2k race walking, high jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault, discus, javelin, shot and hammer).

It all sounds a bit serious but actually it is really good fun, allows you to try something different and caters for all abilities!

The fun takes place over 4 meetings as below:

  • Mon 24th April Horspath – Oxford
  • Tuesday 9th May Tilsley Park – Abingdon
  • Thurs 15th June Tilsley Park – Abingdon
  • Sunday 2nd July – Palmer Park, Reading

Each meeting has a selection of different track and field events (for each of the age categories; 35 +, 50-59 and age 60 and over) – see fixtures page. If interested please contact Chris Manton (

Timetable of Track & Field events for each meeting can be viewed here.
