The remaining four events for the senior boys will be in the long jump, 400 metres, 800 metres and finally the 4x100 metres relay race.

This is the fourth edition of the inter-schools competition and organisers are expecting more than 2,000 children in six age groups to participate during the preliminary rounds this month.
