23.08.21 NECAA Statement regarding further Open Track & Field meetings this year
With the Covid restrictions being eased at the beginning of the year the NECAA elected to host 5 Track & Field Open meetings. These meetings were extra to the usual NEGP meetings and Championship meetings in order to give our athletes worthwhile competition throughout the year.
The first 2 meetings (April at Morpeth and May at Middlesbrough) proved to be very successful. The NEGP meetings were oversubscribed and we have just completed a successful 2 day Championship meeting at Middlesbrough.
At the beginning of the year it was not foreseen that we would have a Cross Country season, but the Endurance side of our sport has been busy and have put together a full set of Cross Country fixtures, just like pre Covid.
Because of this, the NECAA Committee feels that the remaining Open Track & Field fixtures are no longer required.
Therefore the Open fixtures: 26th September at Morpeth, 9th October at Shildon, 24th October at Morpeth Have all been cancelled.
