A programme of eight graded meetings is planned for male and female athletes over 17 years of age. The Shot, Discus, Hammer and 56lb WD events are limited to athletes over 18 years of age on the day. Track events will if necessary be divided into separate races on the basis of performance, which could involve mixed participation.
All meetings on the 2012 calendar feature a middle distance race of some description or another, so there’s something there to satisfy everybody. You may, of an evening, do as much or as little as you like. The admission charge is €5 per meeting and entries will be accepted on the day. Each athlete will receive a performance certificate and electronic timing will be used.
While events are open to athletic club members only (i.e. Athletic Ireland members), it is open to athletes from outside Cork as well. For anyone who has never tried a track event before, these are ideal events to start off with.
