On Saturday 17th June, around 150 athletes descended on Crownpoint for Red Star’s Annual Athletics Championships. Participants travelled from as far afield as Aberdeen and Dumfries & Galloway, which is great to see and they were welcomed by a dry and sunny day.
As well as the numerous first time competitors which is fantastic to see, there were also a number of Scotland’s top athletes in Nathan Fleetwood, Gavin Drysdale and Jo Butterfield MBE to name a few.
The event had been verified by Special Olympics GB so many participants were competing for times/distances that then go towards their Special Olympics entry for the Summer Games in Sheffield in August 2017.
There were some great performances on the day and some very close fought races – congratulations to everyone who competed.
Thanks goes to Scottish Athletics for their support, all volunteers and helpers, Crownpoint staff, and all parents/carers who brought athletes along and supported.
