On the programme for this Saturday, January 13, are the 80m and 150m for Under-9 athletes, the 100m , 200m, 600m and Long Jump for the Under-11s.

Meanwhile, all other age groups will contest the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, Discus and Long Jump.

But Saturday’s proceedings will start with the 300m Hurdles, as Team Athletics SVG seeks to get local athletes more adept to this event.
