The championship is open to all athletes in the country drawn from the 10 regions, security services, Ghana Education Service, and tertiary institutions.
As with the Circuit Grand Finale, a lot is expected from the athletes who will be competing on the day as they seek to improve upon their performances.
The event is expected to be graced by some of the recent winners of the Circuit Championships such as sprinters Hor Halutie and Sarfo Ansah, 400m runner Rafiatu Nuhu, 800m runner Samuel Yaro, middle distance runner Rita Kyere, among others.
The Ashanti region pair of Hor Halutie and Sarfo Ansah lighted up the Circuit, recording personal best performances of 11.57s and 20.90s respectively. Teenager Rafiatu Nuhu similarly clocked an impressive 53.53s to win the Circuit 400m event while 800m runner Samuel Yaro crossed the finish line in a personal best 1m: 49.06 to win a very competitive men’s 800m final.
The event will also see Upper East youngsters Elizabeth Azuure and Sakat Lariba race each other for the first time this season in the women’s 5000m final.
