Due to the earlier start dates for most track and field league competitions this year we are going to hold the Walton Open Meeting a few weeks later than usual.
The event will be held on Sunday 7th May at Stompond Lane starting at 10:30. The usual programme of events will be held including all track events up to 3000m, sprint hurdles, long hurdles and steeplechase for all relevant age groups and all four jumps. There will be a few events for under 11 age group. As usual there will be no throwing events.
