FPSG National Open

The Emirates Arena is the place to be this Saturday for the opening fixture in the scottishathletics indoor season, the FPSG National Open.  Doors open at 8.30am with admission available on the door.

It’s fantastic to see just short of 800 athletes lined up for the FPSG National Open once again and we hope to see hundreds back on later dates for championship events.

For the vast majority, Saturday will be the first indoor appearance of the season and although there are no medals on offer in the open graded format, and events are mixed gender, it is always a good marker for the rest of the indoor season.

Olympian and double Commonwealth Games medallist, Eilidh Doyle, will race her first 400m of this winter after a 200m outing at the GAA Miler Meet (24.35).  Eilidh is lined up for the mixed two-lap event on Saturday with other names to look out for throughout the day including Angus McInroy, Aidan Quinn, Alec Thomas, Michael Olsen, Grant Muir and Jenna Wrisberg.

Start-lists and timetable information is available online, click on each event to see start-lists.  When the event begins the start-lists will become a live results service.
