The 2023-24 Summer T&F Season commenced on 27 September 2023
SAMA Track & Field Competition is held on Wednesday nights at SA Athletics Stadium at Mile End.
The complete 2023/24 summer program is now available, and can be downloaded using the button below.
A full range of track and field disciplines is covered during the summer season. Multi-events, steeplechase, hurdles and 10,000m run/walk are not held as part of the normal program, but are included in the SAMA summer championships.
Results for all our competitions, including Championships, can be found on the Results page. The photos from previous SAMA competitions can be viewed via our Facebook Gallery.
All are welcome to take part in our weekly competitions. However, only financial SAMA members are eligible for placing in State Age Group (SAG) Championships events. SAMA membership covers competition fees for the normal weekly program, but all competitors must pay a stadium training fee levied by the Stadium management payable by EFTPOS at the stadium entry gate (see the ORSR website for details of the fees). Registration for events is done at the SAMA desk inside the stadium (please allow 30 minutes before your first event).
The dates for all SAMA events including Championships will be listed in the Summer Program, and full details of competition each week are also shown in the Events Calendar.
A number of the walks and runs during the season are conducted using predetermined handicaps, with the remainder held as scratch races, which include the SAG Championship events. See additional information regarding Scratch vs Handicap Weeks below.
The track events are again divided between three separate programs, alternating over a three week cycle, which are designated A, B and C . The field events programs will continue to alternate every two weeks, and these are designated as 1 and 2. The timetables for both track and field programs and the specific dates on which each type of program will be held can be found in the Summer Program.
