A very special athletics meeting

Hundreds of track and field athletes will meet on Saturday at the CONI sports field in Bolzano, where the fifth track and field meeting for the city of Bozen South Tyrol will take place from 17 p.m. This year the event is also the first stage of the Speed ​​King & Queen Trentino South Tyrol and has also increased the bonus for meeting records.

Athletes from the entire region, but also from other parts of Italy and abroad, are expected in Bolzano at the CONI sports field in St.-Gertrud-Weg, where the fifth athletics meeting in the city of Bozen-South Tyrol will open in the late afternoon of June 3rd . The sporting event is characterized by some innovations this year, especially in terms of organization: The Bozen Raiffeisen runners club, which has led the meeting in recent years, has now teamed up with the Athletic Club 96 Alperia.

“This year we decided on important collaborations at local and regional level in the interests of athletics. We are organizing the meeting together with Athletic Club 96 Alperia, a prestigious club from Bolzano that has already won many titles. We are also working with two other meetings in Trentino as part of the Speed ​​King & Queen Trentino South Tyrol,” reports Andreas Widmann, President of the Bozen Raiffeisen Runners Club. “This stage series has some very interesting characteristics for intermediate to high level athletes. When it was suggested to us to organize a stage in Bolzano, I informed the president of the Bozen Raiffeisen Runners Club, which also organizes the big BOclassic Südtirol,” adds Bruno Telchini, president of Athletic Club 96 Alperia. The athletics meeting in the city of Bozen South Tyrol became the first stage of the Speed ​​King & Queen Trentino South Tyrol.

Bonuses for meeting records at the Speed ​​King & Queen Trentino South Tyrol
At the Meeting City of Bozen South Tyrol, eight competitions each will be held for men and women, in which the categories “Allievi”, “Juniores”, “Promesse” and “Seniores” will take part. 100 meters, 100 meter hurdles (110 meters for men), 400 and 800 meters, long jump and high jump, shot put and javelin are on the program. If you set a new meeting record, you can win a bonus, which has been increased to 200 euros this year. Young people are also involved: athletes from the region in the “Cadette”/“Cadetti” categories can compete against each other in the shot put and the 80 and 600 meter run.

Handsome prize money

In addition, the athletes in the older categories (“Cadette” and “Cadetti” excluded) will compete in the running distances and in the hurdles for important points for the overall ranking of the Speed ​​King & Queen Trentino South Tyrol. After the first stage in Bolzano, the series moves to Pergine on June 17th for the first “Meeting Pergine” and on July 1st to Arco for the “Queenatletica Arco Games 2.0”. The six athletes who end up at the top in the overall ranking – which is calculated based on the two best meeting results – will receive prize money from a pot totaling 6.600 euros. 800 euros will go to the top two women and men, 700 euros to the second, 600 euros to the third, 500 euros to the fourth, 400 euros to the fifth and 300 euros each to the sixth. “Thanks to these sums, we expect a lot of registrations from top athletes,” the two presidents agree.
