The Army Inter Corps & Individual Athletics Championships –15 Jun 22
The Inter Corps and Individual Athletics Championships, will be held on Wed 15 Jun 22 at the Military Stadium Aldershot. The R Signals are lead Corps for this year and are requested to supply the works party to assist the Army Athletics Secretary to run the event.
Traditionally there has been a large number of athletes who have looked to compete in the field events as individuals entering on the day and once again this year that is encouraged as it is a good guage for spotting new talent. A judgement will be taken by the organiser in conjunction with the field officials about number permitted to compete to ensure the programme of events can be completed in a timely manner as the stadium needs to be cleared by 1800hrs due to other bookings. Anyone looking to enter an event on the day must do so at least 30 minutes before the event.
Aim. The aim of this instruction is to detail the administration requirements of the event.
General. The aim of the Championships is to promote athletics and encourage competition between Corps and to aide the selection of the Army Teams for the Inter Services Track and Field Championships that will be held at RAF Cosford on Wed 6 Jul 22 . The competition will be conducted under UK Athletics Rules. All events will form part of the team competition. The programme of events is attached at Annex D.
Team Size. Each Corps may enter 1 male and 1 female team. Male teams are to enter 2 competitors in each event (A and B String) and female teams are to enter one competitor in each event.
