2013 Black Programme Newtown Park Sat 19 Oct

We had a nice weather day for this time of the year. In terms of numbers there were plenty of high school athletes getting ready for their national champs in December and a surprisingly high number of senior and master’s athletes. Usually the serious senior athletes don't turn up to race at the track until after Christmas.

While the programme went smoothly the 800m heats were delayed by at least 40 minutes while the hurdle events were held. This really should not be happening and the Centre needs to look at ways of avoiding this.  I suspect there might have been a few complaints from coaches. The irony is that the 800m event had a large number of entries and athletes signed up to run had to hang around at the start line waiting for their call-up and continually repeat warm-ups.
The events photographed were all track races including 100m hurdles, 800m, 400m, 3k/5k and 200m. Results
