The information below has been emailed to each athlete - please check your inboxes (and spam filters)!
The map at the bottom of this post shows the car park available at Monkton Stadium (outlined in purple) - there is a charge for parking here (approx 70p) so please remember to bring some change. If you have trouble parking in the car park, there is ample parking along the sides of York Avenue (the dual carriageway that leads to Monkton Stadium from the A194) which is free to use. Please do not park in the surrounding estates if at all possible, but if you do, please park considerately. If possible, consider car-sharing or using public transport - the area is well served by local buses, and the Metro station is not far from the stadium.
Numbers will be available for collection from 9am (or 8am for the throws pentathlon entrants) at the clubhouse (marked on the map with a red X) - please remember to bring your own pins! Numbers must be worn front and back, so you'll need 8 (10 if you're doing the 10k Champs as you'll need to pin on an age category number too!) If you told me you had your old number, please remember to bring the bibs with you - you can check the number you have assigned on our start lists - main pentathlon HERE and throws pentathlon HERE, with the 10k Champs entries HERE. All 10k entrants will have been assigned new numbers, so please don't use your league number for this competition.
IMPORTANT NOTE - after 10.00 we may have moved to the back of the stadium stand (near the announcers box), although depending on weather conditions etc. we may still be based in the clubhouse, so try there first!
NEMAA members - disregard my earlier email about reusing your league number, you have all been assigned a new number, you can check the number you have been assigned on our start lists HERE.
Hot food and drink will be available from the stadium cafe until approximately 2.30pm, with vending machines available after that time.
Pentathlon:- Results will be displayed on the back wall of the stadium near to the announcer's box, with individual pentathlon event results (to show grades, wind speed etc.) available to view online here if desired (if time allows for upload). Final results will be listed on the NEMAA website as soon as possible after the event.
10k Champs:- Results will be displayed on the back wall of the stadium near to the announcer's box, and also online HERE. Final results will also be listed on the NEMAA website as soon as possible after the event. Medal presentations will take place as soon as possible after each event, at the front of the main stand.
An order of events is shown below. You will note that only the time of the first event is given, as it is impossible to accurately predict how long each stage of the competition will take.
We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday, and wish you all the best for a great day of athletics competition!
