Relay events are great fun and always popular. This meet is intended to provide a great opportunity to learn and practice relay skills, prior to the Junior Championships.
Our relays programme includes: 4 x 100m, 4 x 200m, Medley Relay, plus a 1,000m sprint relay (1 x 400m, 2 x 200m, 2 x 100m).
We welcome individual runners to make up scratch teams, and also welcome club teams. Get a team together and come along to join the action.
It is important that as many club coaches as possible are available to help support this event.
We won’t have electronic timing, and there will not be results published.
The Newtown Festival is also on this Sunday, but it will still be possible to get to Newtown Park for our Relays meet. Some roads will be closed and there will be bypass routes in place, and traffic delays should be anticipated.
See road closures and bypass routes at this link: http://www.newtownfestival.org.nz/…/RoadClosureMap_019_WEB.…
Please plan to arrive by 9:30am. This will help us organize the teams and get the event underway on time.
The Relays meet will finish around 12;30, giving you plenty of time to also enjoy the Newtown Festival.
