First of all, an important announcement! There were several instances of careless behaviour on the infield last Monday, which could have resulted in serious injury.
Members are instructed to follow track & field safety rules at all times during all our track & field fixtures at Monkton Stadium.
Spectators are NOT ALLOWED on the inside of the track.
Competitors and officials waiting to take part in their next specific field event are the only ones allowed on the inside of the track.
Competitors and officials should always be aware when throwing events are taking place - especially near the long jump and triple jump runways.
Competitors should NEVER TAKE A SHORT CUT ACROSS THE CENTER OF THE FIELD to the start of their race.
On a side note, please don't park on the grass around the track at the front of the stadium - the grass is getting torn up and the stadium staff are not happy. There is a ton of free parking along the sides of York Avenue, and the few minutes walk to the stadium will warm you up nicely for your event!
There are also some updated rules regarding lane infringements - full details can be found on THIS LINK but a simple demonstration of the rules is shown below.
Many thanks to the many athletes and supporters at last night's event - there was an excellent turnout this year and luckily the weather was relatively kind to us. Thank you to the officials who stood outside for hours, the first aid team, the council for allowing us to use the park, the stadium staff and finally the athletes themselves - we hope you all enjoyed the evening. The results have finally been published, big apologies for the delay in getting these online, not up to my usual standard! Results can be found HERE and below are a few pics of the winners in various age groups.
PS If there was an award for watch stopping on the line, there'd be a few worthy contenders here!
