Republic Bank-NAAA Relay Festival is back on track

After a two-year hiatus owing to the COVID-19 restrictions, the Republic Bank-NAAATT Relays Festival is back. The event will be held at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Sunday May 22nd, commencing at 1:00 p.m.

At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Team TTO was eventually adjudged winner of the Men’s 4X100m event.

T&T’s Men’s 4X400m Team has won gold at the 2017 World Championships in London and at the 2019 World Relays in Tokyo.

At the most recent Carifta Games in Jamaica, our national team won five (5) relay medals – silver in the Boy’s Under 17 4X100m and 4X400m; and the Boy’s Under 20 4X400m with bronze in both the Girl’s Under 17 and Under 20 4X100m.

Unlike previous years, the upcoming event will be contested on a zonal basis. Member clubs of the Association have been assigned to zones based on their geographic locations. Four (4) zones – North West, North East, South Central and Tobago – will each field two teams filling out all eight lanes at the venue.

Zonal Coordinators and Assistant Coordinators have been appointed to mobilise the clubs in each zone and to ensure that the best talent will be on show.
