Open Graded Meetings 2023

Horspath Road Athletics Track, Horspath Road, Oxford, OX4 2RR.

OCAC hosts a number of Midweek Open Graded Meetings each summer. In 2023 these are being co-organised by OCAC, and Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire AA. There will be 6 meetings in 2023.

Each meeting takes place on a Wednesday evening, and comprises between five and six events scheduled between 6.30 pm and 9.30 pm. There will normally be two field events, and four or five track events. All events are run subject to UKA rules, the meetings are certified by UKA, and the track races are electronically timed using photo-finish technology.  All events cost £6 per entry, and a current UKA athlete licence (registration) is required. Events are open to u13 athletes upwards.

OUR OPEN MEETINGS ARE NOW ONLINE BOOKING ONLY via Roster Athletics. Each event is limited to a specific number of athletes to ensure that we run to schedule, so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.

“Just thought I’d drop you a line. I competed at your Open Graded Meeting on Wednesday 16th and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my evening of throwing the hammer. It was nice to be at a competition that had a relaxed atmosphere and where everyone was enjoying their throwing. It makes a nice change to go to a competition where everyone is relaxed, and where the officials were so friendly. Look forward to entering your competitions in the future.” Tayla Mullings, U17 Bromsgrove and Redditch
