In our continued efforts to support our regional counterparts, the National Association of Athletics Administrations of Trinidad and Tobago (NAAATT) will be collecting nonperishable items for our track and field colleagues in Dominica. These persons who were affected by the recent hurricanes will benefit from the items collected at the National Cross Country Championships on November 26, 2017 at the Queens Park Savannah, PORT-OF-SPAIN just opposite Q.R.C. The Championships will begin at 2:00 p.m and registration takes place on the Race Day from 12pm. Registration is only $20. Defending champions Ben Bannister of Mason Hall – Kids, Matthew Pulchan of Petrotrin – Juvenile, Aaliyah Mitchell of Abilene Wildcats – Junior Girl, Joshua James of Cougars – Juinor Boy, Samatha Shukla of Richard Jones Racing Club – Women and Mathew Hagley of Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force who just returned from a successful race in Cuba at the NACAC Half Marathon placing 5th in the Men’s Category and 2nd alongside Tonya Nero in the Team Category respectively will be there. These feature athletes will be participating in a specially designed race course which will be clearly outlined within the Savannah.

In this regard, the NAAATT will be setting up two (2) bins at the Cross Country Championships to facilitate donations of nonperishable items by members of the general public. NAAATT is calling on the support of its members and the general public to join us on Sunday 26th November at the Queens Park Savannah and not only support the participants of the National Cross Country Championships but to make their contributions. In addition to these items, the Association has committed to supply some track & field gear and equipment to be shipped before the end of 2017 to our neighbours. We look forward to seeing all citizens out in their numbers with their donations as they continue to support our local and regional athletes.
