Livingston Open Meeting - Arrangements

Arrangements for the Open Meeting on Wednesday night now that entries have closed:

Timetable

The final timetable for Wednesday night is available below.

Track events will be seeded based on performance only (not age group), with the heats ordered fastest to slowest.

The high jump pools will also be split by personal best, not age group. Athletes with a personal best less than 1.30m or no personal best will be in the first pool, and athletes with a personal best of 1.30m or higher will be in the second pool.

Declarations

Declarations open at 6.00 pm in the athletics pavilion (overlooking the finish line). You're expected to declare at least 45 minutes before the start time of your first event, with final declarations strictly 30 minutes before the published start time of each event. Last declarations will be at 8.05 pm.

After declaring and warming-up, please report to the start area for your event 5 minutes before the published start time.

For track events, if after declaring you later decide to withdraw from an event, please inform the declarations team so you are not seeded into a race.

Refreshments

Tea/coffee, home baking and filled rolls will be available throughout the evening in the club room overlooking the 100m start.

More donations of home baking are also needed please.

Club Kit

Club kit including vests, crop tops, hoodies and tracksuit bottoms will be available for purchase from the pavilion.

New members don't need to wear a club vest and trainers are fine if you don't have spikes yet, unless it's raining in which case spikes would be required for certain events.

Car Parking / Location

The athletics track is located at Craigswood Sports Centre, Craigswood, Livingston, EH54 5ER.

If the sports centre car park is full, please park on Grange Road and NOT the residential streets opposite the Sports Centre.

If you park on Grange Road near the Industrial Estate, there is an access path (via Harrysmuir Road) leading to the back of the Sports Centre. Please leave plenty of time to find a space!

Spectators

Spectators should remain outside of the track and field competition areas at all times. Athletes should also avoid crossing the finish line when they're not competing and another race is in progress, as this may interfere with the photofinish.

The infield is restricted to technical officials only, please walk around the outside of the track when moving around the arena.

Please don't bring dogs into the arena, the entire sports centre complex is a dog-free zone.

Officials & Volunteers

Thanks to all those who have volunteered to help, the rota will be emailed to you shortly.

We're also looking for a few more parents (or athletes who aren't competing) to assist officials with track and field events, to ensure the event runs smoothly. If you're available to help, please contact Alistair.

Entry Lists

Entry lists are available via the link below. If contacting us about any errors or omissions, please provide your entry confirmation number or reply to your confirmation email.

Start Lists / Results

Track events will be seeded into heats on Wednesday night, after declarations close for each event. Approximately 10 minutes before the start time for each track event, start lists will then be posted on the athletics pavilion window and also available online via the link below.

Results will also be available online during the evening via the link below.
