Congratulations go to all of the MAWA finishers.
Kim Thomas had a dream run finishing 4th overall and setting a massive PB of 2:41:18.7 with age-graded 81.35%. Kevin Johnson won his category and scored a very creditable 73.88%.
Ex-member Ross Langford came 3rd overall
In the women’s event, Jaqueline Kellerman had a great run in 3:06:23 scoring 75.41%, while Vanessa Carson ran 3:15:25.6 with age-graded 71.73%
But topping them all, and winning the Jim Barnes trophy for a sixth time, was Bob Lane with a time of 3:14:27.6 and age-grade of 86.41%
For the last two years Easter Day has been just a group jog because of clashes, but there is no reason not to re-instate a run next year.
We have used up all our active runs so will need a new venue.
If any member has a good idea for a suitable new venue, please let a committee member know.
Congratulations to all MAWA athletes who competed in Darwin. Click below for the results. Unfortunately we do not yet have positions for the pentathlons, nor the cross country results. Any errors or omissions please contact Barbara (email@example.com)
Also congratulations to Richard who won the ‘Administrator of the year’ award.
Numbers doing the Patron’s Trophy have been declining for several years, and the committee, along with some athletes who have done the trophy for many years, have looked at how to make it more appealing.
We have decided to reduce the number of events to 11 so that there is no need for more than one per week in the October to December period. There will be a better balance between track and field, achieved by reducing the running events. We have made it simpler – all you need to do is to complete 9 events and the best 9 count.
The events are: 100m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 5000m, LJ, HJ, TJ, Shot Put, Discus, Javelin, so with 9 to count everyone has to do at least 1 run, 1 jump and 1 throw. Athletes will still be able to compete in the same events at ECAC and WAAS but only the best result in each event will count.
Please consider entering the Patron’s Trophy this year – it has a long tradition within MAWA. All finishers receive a commemorative certificate.

On a magical night at Ern Clark, in perfect conditions, David Carr smashed the 1500m M85 World record by 11 seconds, recording 6:27.3. He was paced initially by Barbara to the 900m mark and then by Bjorn through the finish.
And earlier in the week another MAWA member scored a World Record, this time Barbara Blurton in the W65 4x400m team at the National Championships in Darwin. Their time was 4:52.76
The Risk Management Plan for Road Running events has been updated and placed under the ‘Our Club/About Us’ Tab. We recommend that all members who participate in Sunday Runs read at least the table document
