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 27th April Horspath – Oxford
  • Mon 18th May Tilsley Park – Abingdon
  • Mon 1st June Tilsley Park – Abingdon
  • Sun 28th June Palmer Park – Reading

Events for each meeting have yet to be published and will follow in due course.

If you have participated before there are some important changes, the main one being that there is no provision for Non-Scorers, therefore all participants will contribute toward scoring and, depending on numbers wanting to participate in an event, may require us to select participant; how that will be done is to be discussed an announced in due course.

Another significant change (or at least a rule that will be enforced) is that relay teams must be made up of one participant from each of the age groups 35+, 50+ and 60+.

Main Event Timetable coming soon.
