Following the presentation and practice, a brief meet will be held. Running events will include the 55m, 55m hurdles, 200m, 400m, 600m, 1000m and 1600m. A medley relay will be held if time allows. Shot put, long jump and triple jump will be contested with each athlete being permitted three jumps or throws.

Pole vault and high jump will remain open practice and not be contested events. Athletes wishing to participate in pole vault will need to supply their own poles.
