There's just one week left to enter the second GAA Sprint Gala on Friday 28th June, taking place at Scotstoun Stadium 18:00 - 21:00.
On the track we are offering events on the night which include 100m and 200m open to all age groups, Sprint Hurdles (open to U15 athletes and above) and with Scottish Athletics looking to field both women's and men's Senior, U20 and U17 teams, there will also be the chance to race Scotland's best sprinters over a 4x100m Relay.
All races will be run from slowest to fastest.
In the field, we will also be offering Long jump and High jump (open to athletes U13 and above) at this meeting. There will be a maximum of 12 athletes in each field event pool, if entries exceed this we will open up a second pool, to a maximum of 24 athletes per event. Athletes will be given 6 jumps in the long jump. Height progressions in the high jump will be pre set but are still to be confirmed.
This event is online entry only
The maximum number of athletes for the meeting will be around 200.
Entries will close on Friday 21st June and will operate on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis.
Once the event is full entries will close, so enter quick to avoid missing out.
We will aim to operate a waiting list if the events fill up so please inform us if you are no longer able to compete.
It's a fast dash for cash!
Rolling over from our last Sprint Gala we’re delighted to announce that both the men’s and women’s 100m race have a £300 prize pot for those who run equal to or less than the target time of 10.75 and 12.05 respectively.
Athletes will have the chance to get their hands on some £££ is they meet the following target times:
- £300 (Rollover) 100m Men - 10.75
- £300 (Rollover) 100m Women - 12.05
- £100 200m Men - 21.6
- £100 200m Women - 24.5
- £80 Men's 4x100m Relay*
- £80 Women's 4x100m Relays*
* Prize pot money available to fastest non-International relay team, subject to three club/squad teams running
Any athlete to run the time will split the pot, i.e. if only one 100m male runner runs 10.75 he will take the £300 prize pot, if 3 athletes run 10.75 they will each receive £100, and so on for each event.
If no athlete hits the time for that event it will carry forward to our next Sprint Gala on Wednesday 24th July. Enter here
