PNG Games timetable released
Following consultations with the PNG Games Office, Athletics PNG has published the timetable of events for the 2014 PNG Games. The programme kicks off on Saturday November 22 followed by a rest day on Sunday then three full days 24 to 26 November. Thursday 27 is a half day and will see several finals run between 9am and 1pm. The competition concludes on Friday 28th with the half marathon road race at 5:30am and the 4*400m relay finals in the afternoon as part of the closing ceremony.
Athletes competing at the Games will have the opportunity to get a feel of the new track ahead of the Games when the Momase Championships are held in conjunction with a warm up meet. The championships were to have been held in September but due to difficulties securing an alternate venue with renovation work going on at the Sir Ignatius Kilage stadium, the event was postponed. The exact date will be confirmed following discussions with the relevant authorities.
