North of England Track and Field

Anyone who is planning to run in the North of England Track and Field Match on Saturday 6 May should note that the venue for the meeting is Bolton (Leverhulme Park Athletics Stadium) as indicated in the info on the NoEAA web ( ) and not at Wigan as stated in the Macclesfield Harriers fixtures calendar.
