There was a team competition titled Dynamic New Athletics held in Minsk a few weeks ago in which an Irish Team competed.Well the highly successful Dublin Graded Series next meeting in Morton Stadium on July 24th. will host an Elimination Mile for both Men and Women.
With no pacemakers involved in this innovate event athletes will have to work it out as they race as the last athlete through the finish line at the end of each of the first three laps will be eliminated and have to leave the track.
This should provide an absorbing race and a race with a different challenge. Which will require a different approach and a new experience. So athletes looking for a new experience on the Morton Stadium Track famous since its world record mile in 1957 should come along.
Another innovate event on the programme for the last meeting in the Graded Series on August 7th. in Tallaght will be a Mixed Relay . With a Woman running 3 Minutes and handing over to her male club mate at the completion of her leg and the Man finishing off with his 3 minute contribution. A chance to finish off the track season with a novel event.
