Every competitor will receive a free t-shirt along with either a medal and/or performance certificate. Free packed lunches will be provided for all competitors, coaches, officials and volunteers. *Guide Runners may be arranged with advance notice, you will need to provide an estimate of your track times.

Event closes after final Medal Ceremony – 5.00pm
The track (Mile End Stadium) and the accommodation (Queen Mary University) are within walking distance of Mile End Tube Station (Central and District line).
In order for as many events as possible to take place, it may be necessary to merge sight categories thereby ensuring the maximum number of individual ‘event requests’ are met. We recognise this could lead to a miss-match in functional sight levels, however our aim with the ‘Metro Athletics Open’ is to always offer the widest range of opportunities for athletes to compete. We view this as a preferable option to cancelling events with low numbers.
The closing date for Entries is Saturday 01st June 2019, if you require Accommodation the closing date is 31st March 2019.
Accommodation: This will be available on Friday and Saturday night (21st and 22nd) at the aforementioned Queen Mary University of London. Please note there is a further reduction for those under the age of 18. A separate form is available for accommodation requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

World Café Day
SATURDAY 21st APRIL 2018
LEEDS DEAF CENTRE
(though likely to be cheaper if we have good numbers)
The idea of the day is to carousel around different facilitated groups discussing certain professional or practical interpreting dilemmas through scenarios and how one would resolve these.
We want this to be an enjoyable day, to get together, socialise, share ideas and look at different perspectives whilst considering the codes of conduct and the code of ethics in a safe, supportive environment.
Finishing off with a plenary session the day will hopefully give us more insight and reflection shaping how practice moving forward both as individuals and collectively.
The day will be worth structured 6 CPD hours – the more interpreters attend the richer the experience!
Open to all registered interpreters and regulated trainee interpreters
