Athletics at the CSSC Centenary Games

16 Sep 2022
10:00AM - 5:00PM

CSSC celebrated its Centenary in 2021 but due to the Covid Pandemic most planned events could not take place. The CSSC Games of 2022 therefore hope to celebrate some of its long history and the Civil Service Athletics Association (CSAA) , which traces its roots back to 1864, looks forward to being part of those celebrations.

CSAA plan to re-create some of the events from its own long history and hope those taking part will feel free to compete in attire worn in those early years.
