All Events

The packed 2024 track, field and road race schedule for OARC and non-OARC organised events in Orkney can be found on this page. Some events are confirmed dates, others are subject to change, please see the individual event pages for details. Please note that the Picky track will be refurbished between mid April and late June, and any changes or delays to those dates may affect the calendar for OARC events.

We also include regional and national events that we think will be of interest to our members, but these are non-OARC organised events and information may not be fully up to date. Scottish Athletics maintain an event calendar which will be more up to date for their events:
