Isle of Man Athletics is pleased to announce NEWFIELD as the lead sponsor for the new Isle of Man Athletics Track and Field League.
Newfield is a locally based company within the Island’s eGaming sector, with a focus on international sporting events. The company is committed to investing in and developing local talent on the Island and giving back to the community.
Previously athletes from each of the Island’s track & field clubs have competed separately in their club’s own track and field leagues. This summer all athletes from age groups U13 upwards will compete against each other over six meetings at the NSC outdoor track culminating in the Isle of Man Track & Field Championships in August.
Signing on will take place at the Manx Harriers clubhouse on Thursday 14 March and Wednesday 20 March from 5.30–7.30 pm
If you are unable to attend the signing on evenings you will have the opportunity to sign on by post. Please fill in the Track and Field League Form 2019 and a cheque made out to Isle of Man Athletics Association and post to Petra Atchison, Ballasaig Farm, Maughold, Isle of Man IM7 1BJ.
The fee for the League in 2019 will be £20 if payment is made before 28th March 2019; after this date it will be £25.
Whilst you may sign on at the first competition evening it would be helpful to the organisers and other competitors if you could sign on at one of the signing on evenings or post the forms beforehand to reduce congestion on competition night.
The Isle of Man Track and Field League starts on Wednesday 3 April at 6.15pm at the NSC Athletics Track, and will continue until 24 July 2019 (see dates below). Athletes will compete in age groups in selected track and field events during the six meetings of the league, with four weeks to count.
Here is the event list for each competition date however a full timetable will be published on this website a few days prior to the each competition date.

To allow the Track and Field League to run smoothly and to time we would ask if parents could assist for at least one evening in the season. You will be asked to do a non technical task like pulling the tape through, raking the sandpit or retrieving the discus or shot putt. You will be working with a qualified judge who will assist you. We will have a chart available and it would be greatly appreciated if you would put your name down for at least one evening in the Season.
