The winners of each regional final will have their performances forwarded to a Virtual National Final. The winners of the Virtual National Final will receive a trophy along with a visit from an international athlete. To ensure compatibility in the results, the events which will be contested at the Regional Finals will be;

 

  • 40m sprint (2 x 20m),
  • 40m Hurdles (2 x 20m),
  • Endurance Challenge, 
  • Shot,
  • Step Up Challenge,
  • Standing Long Jump,
  • Standing Triple Jump.

 Please note that school teams should consist of 7 girls and 7 boys, all team members compete in the full range of events. Important note: GH is designed as a taster for those not yet in involved with athletics to tempt them to take it up. This ethos is indeed followed by many LA's. With this in mind, schools are encouraged to use as many non-club athletes as possible when making up their teams.

Team sheets should be emailed to [email protected] at least one week prior to the event date – changes can be made on the day. 

All teams should have a team manager in attendance at the regional final.
