International pole vaulter Luke Cutts (Dearne ALC) heads entries for the Sheffield Festival of Athletics which includes the Lord Mayor’s 10k road race on Sunday,

Teammates Lewis Billam (Under-20) and Adam Hague (U-15) also take part. Jamie Williamson (Sheffield), ranked sixth in Britain last year, is listed for the shot.

There should be keen competition in the sprints with Hannah Bird (Barnsley) in the senior women’s events, Abigail Bishell (Sheffield) and Lauren Frid (Barnsley) in the U-17s, and Ben Shields (Rotherham) in the junior men’s section.

Kelly Bramhald (Doncaster) and Lauren England (Barnsley) clash in the javelin but last year’s winner Jessica Ennis will not start her outdoor campaign until next month.
