152nd Track & Field Season - Summer 2021

Summer Fixture List - some maybe CANCELLED OR POSTPONED due to Covid-19

Red= amendment

Fixture list for website (last update 22.4.2021)

A message from John Hubbardhere have been a number of changes to the fixture list for Summer 2021 as the various competition organisers have considered the impact of coronavirus restrictions on competition. In particular, organisers have been mindful of the need for athletes to have good time to prepare for competition, as well as the need to minimise travel and other measures to help ensure a safe return to competition. Please be aware that all fixtures are subject to change, but hopefully we will get more, not less, clarity in the next few weeks. KCAA have put their provisional fixture list on their website: please check the KCAA website for updates.  9-03-21
