Southern Athletics League 2022 invitation

Its time to think about Summer and running on the track in the sunshine.
This year the Southern Athletics League will have four matches on the following dates:

Sunday 22nd May – Sutcliffe Park, Eltham
Sunday 12th June – Medway Park, Gillingham
Saturday 16th July – Sutcliffe Park, Eltham
Saturday 13th August – Medway Park, Gillingham
This league is fun, friendly, and competitive, but not a high-powered event, so suitable for everyone to dip their toe into track and field athletics, it’s really no different from running around our own Paddock Wood track!
Ages – U17 upwards, everyone from 15-year-olds (if you will be 15 by the 31st August 2022 then you are eligible), to masters 70+ competing, Men & Women. You’ll be amazed at the variety of people competing!
Events – All track races – 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, 3000/5000m, Men and women’s steeplechase, 100/110m & 400m hurdles, 4×100 & 4x400m relays (some of which are mixed). All field events – Hammer, Shot, Discus, Javelin, Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault.
If you can’t compete please come along to support us and help out on the day, its a very sociable time, we all stop and chat, sit down and have lunch (hopefully) between events, and we really need some extra hands to help out, you may be asked to collect shot puts, or help move hurdles off the track, maybe even adjust a high jump bar (no previous skills required!). Especially at the last match, which we are jointly hosting.
Please come and support your club, competing, watching, or helping. We will try to organise the sun coming out at each match, but currently not guaranteed!.
If you are interested in competing or helping, please reply to indicating which matches you can attend and if needed which events you would like to compete in,
See you all soon,
Liz Bignell
