Alastair Chalmers gets the action off to an intense start over the 400m hurdles at 6.15pm.

The 20-year-old defied windy weather for a spectacular 49.87sec. all-comers’ record last time out – now, given the more pleasant conditions, he has a hot new target.

That will be to regain his British No. 1 ranking from Birchfield’s Efekemo Okoro, who stormed to a 49.68 personal best last weekend.

Abi Galpin strides straight back into competition four days after her Guernsey senior 200m record – but this time she will focus solely on the 100m, off the back of last weekend’s 12.19 PB.

A highly competitive 1500m also features and so does an early-season steeplechase competition over that same distance, with several promising development athletes taking on the obstacles.
