The 58th National Inter-State Senior Athletics Championship, a qualifying event for the upcoming Asian Games, has been shifted to Guwahati from Kolkata. The dates have also been advanced by the National Federation to avoid a Gold Coast Commonwealth Games like situation.

The capital city of Assam will host the event from June 26th to 29th at the Sarusajai Sports Complex which had hosted the athletics events at the South Asian Games in 2016. The championship was earlier scheduled to be held in Kolkata from July 15th to 18th.

The decision to advance the dates came in the backdrop of a controversy surrounding the rejection of late entries of three track and field athletes by the Gold Coast CWG organisers as their names were sent after the closure of final entry.
