Dublin Athletics Graded Meetings - 𝘼𝙧𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙮?
This year's Graded Track & Field meetings begin on the UCD track on Saturday 29th April 2023. The full 2023 programme is attached below. The online entry system will be open a few days before the first meeting. Our Graded Meetings for 2023 have been recorgnised by World Athletics as a category F event. This means that any standards set will be recognised by World Athlics for achieving ranking points and for achieving qualification standards for international events.
All clubs taking part are asked to supply at least two volunteers to help run the meetings.

Simply decide which event you want to enter e.g. 100m Women.
Decide which Time you can achieve e.g. 13.3 seconds implies Grade C.
Grade A means you can run in a time of 12.5 seconds or better.
Grade B means you can run in a time of 13.0 seconds or better.
Grade C means you can run in a time of 13.5 seconds or better.
Grade D is for all others.
If you run faster than 13 seconds but more than 12:50, then next time you enter, you will be in Grade B.
For each competition and race the programme will clearly have the grades published.
