Hampshire Athletics Track & Field, Multi-Events and QuadKids Championships

With the Covid-19 lockdown slowly easing and the possibility of further relaxation over the next two to three months, the decision has been made to organise the 2021 Hampshire Athletics Track & Field Championships over the August Bank Holiday weekend of Sunday 29th and Monday 30th August.

The venue will continue to be the Mountbatten Leisure Centre Track facility.

Timetables of events will be posted here shortly, together with guidance regarding the entry procedure.

Ray Scovell

The sad death of Ray Scovell, a name known to many in the county and especially on the Isle of Wight, has been announced as a very unfortunate statistic of the Coronavirus pandemic, as he was taken to hospital with an unrelated illness.

Ray was self-taught in coaching field event athletes and over the past nearly 30 years had brought athletes both from the Island and other parts of the UK to the Commonwealth and International stages.

As the Island's Community Development Officer for sports he encouraged large numbers to take part in the local Medina Park Runs. He expanded this to bring in juniors as he was determined to see children more active.

A comprehensive tribute to Ray has appeared in the Isle of Wight County Press.

Unfortunately, there was further bad news to follow when Ray's wife Rosemary died a short time later, also from Covid. Our thoughts go to Ray and Rosemary's family who will always remember Ray as living his life for sport and the local community where they lived.
