Have your say

A new county athletics event for multi-discipline athletes is inviting entries for next month’s championships.

The Leicestershire and Rutland Athletics Association Pentathlon Championship and Open Combined Events Competition is being held at the Saffron Lane Stadium, in Leicester, on Sunday, August 16 from 10am.

The competition is a full pentathlon open to anyone in the under 13s, 15s and 17s year age groups.

This is a rare opportunity for Leicestershire athletes to take part in a local combined event and a great chance to experience five events in one day.

There will also be a mini quadkids open competition for anyone aged between eight and 10, including a wheelchair competition.

The closing date for entries is Monday, August 3.
