Parents of Athletes should have received a text message last night informing them of the decision to cancel.

We are offering ALL athletes the opportunity to attend a training session on Saturday morning in Dalbeattie, at 10.00am. Please note there will be no toilets or shelter on Saturday morning.

Go Jo…

Good luck to Jo Muir who is competing at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, representing Great Britain in the Modern Pentathlon. You can see how she gets on on Friday, 6th August with events starting at 6.30am GMT.

Jo is a former member of Stewartry Athletics Club, first competing in an 800m race in 2006 as an Under 13 Athlete.

The Modern Pentathlon requires Athletes to swim, fence and ride a horse to end up with a points score which gives them a time handicap for a final event where they must run a cross-country course while occasionally shooting at targets.

We wish Jo all the best.
