Vets track & field – Southern League
Striders are part of a six team league – there is no promotion or relegation.
Open to all men and women over 35. Abilities are mixed and competition is friendly.
Separate events are held for each age group : for instance for the 100 metres there are separate races for MV35, MV40, MV50, MV60.
There are four fixtures each season – these start at about 6.30 p.m.
Typically the events involve a mixture of : short sprints (100m, 200m, 400m), middle distance (800m or 1500m), longer (3K, and sometimes 5K or 3K/2K steeplechase), hurdles, sometimes a walk (usually 2K) and the field events – a selection of javelin, discus, hammer, shot, long jump, high jump, triple jump and pole vault.
Andy Elliott is our team manager.
