Cambs AA – T&F event update 2022
Cambs AA propose to run a County T&F championship on 14th May 2022 at Cambridge University track. Details below. Championship events are included for wheelchair athletes. Closing date for entries if 7th May at midnight. Entries open on 3rd April.
We are currently very short of Field officials and volunteers to help with Field judging and as a result may have to limit the number of field events available on May 14th. If you would be able to help please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Due to the time available on May 14th and the limited availability of officials this year, the following championship events will take place on the Open meeting dates – 3000m and 5000m plus Under 17’s javelin on June 8th, The Mile plus Under 15’s Triplejumps on June 29th, and the Under 13’s discus on July 13th.
This year’s County Steeplechase Championship is being held within the Steeplechase Festival Day at Bury St Edmunds on Sunday 1st May. Medals will be awarded to the first 3 Cambridgeshire qualified athletes in the following races: U17W 1500m/76.2cm hurdles, U20W 2K/76.2cm, SnrW 3K/76.2cm, U17M 1500m/83.8cm, U20M 2K/91.4cm, SnrM 3K/91.4cm.

Athletics Footwear – Everyone will be fully aware of the debate on shoe technology over the last year of lockdown and so it’s worth ensuring you are up to date with the current rules issued by UKA.
Helpfully there is a full list of which shoes are/are not allowed for track, field, cross country and road events (not all shoes permissible on the road are allowed for track events)! A statement from UK Athletics says that the UKA Rules Group has determined that it is appropriate that the amendments to the Rule should apply to all competitions held under UKA rules both as a matter of fairness and also due to the range of events within the UK where qualifying mark, selections standards and records can be set.” “Adhering to these rules is therefore a responsibility that starts primarily with the athlete and athletes will need to take responsibility to ensure that their shoes conform to the rules and understand that event officials will have the right to check shoes and take appropriate action.” The list can be found here
