21.02.21 Exciting news about this years NECAA summer season.
The NECAA have had several planning meetings and have decided to plan for a normal summer, although the outdoor Championships will be held in August for this year only. It was decided that it would be easier to cancel events rather than try to quickly put events on. So, please find dates of the 2021 North East Counties Outdoor T & F Championships, Grand Prix and Open events at the end of this post.
There is a “spare” date for an extra NEGP meeting just in case we have to cancel the first one in April. Depending on future events outside our control it is possible that some events maybe cancelled/postponed.
Once we get the go ahead to organise events, all clubs will be notified all event details available here.
