NEW DELHI: The 46th Open National athletics championship, which was to be held at Jamshedpur, will now take place at the Nehru Stadium here from October 5 to 8.

According to Athletics Federation of India Secretary Lalit Bhanot, the change in venue was necessitated after coaches advised the federation that Jamshedpur would not be ideal considering the distances involved from the main training centres, Patiala and Bangalore.
