Lothian Track & Field Athletics Competition 2015

Meadowmill Sports Centre played host to the annual Lothian Track and Field Athletics competition on Wednesday 20th May. This was second year the venue had kindly welcomed the athletes from around the Lothian area after taking over hosting duties from Dalkeith School Campus. 

The event took a slightly different approach this year, as senior athletes were invited to participate alongside their junior colleagues for the first time. This allowed 10 senior athletes from Port Seton Resource Centre the opportunity to participate and post times and distances for the National Championships in September. In total, the entry stood at 96 athletes with some individuals making their debut at the event and some returning to try and improve upon their personal bests. It was excellent to see new faces from across the Lothian region, with Dunbar Grammar School joining Cuiken, Campie and East Calder Primary schools attending for the first time.

Like last year the weather was kind to the competitors, allowing for some fine performances on the track and field - notably the female 800m, male 400m and long jump, to name a few. The atmosphere created by all the competitors made the day thoroughly enjoyable and will hopefully encourage the athletes to access local opportunites in the sport.

Special thank you to all the officials at Scottish Athletics and volunteers from Lothian Disability Sport who both gave up their time to come and help make the day a success. Also, thanks to all the school staff and athlete's who supported this year's competition, we hope to see you next year.
