Open Competitions

Throughout the season there are various open competitions. To take part in these competitions you must enter as an individual and in advance by a specified date. Open competitions are a good way to gain experience and confidence, they are also a good opportunity to improve personal bests. If you take part in any open competitions, please let your team manager know how you get on.

If you would like more information about open competitions, please speak to one of the coaches at training.
