We are pleased to announce that the 5 MAWA coaches will continue through the 2018/19 season, and that the schedule on the website has been updated, (see right sidebar).
This offers members a great opportunity to improve their skill level and bring their times down.
We have still not found a throws coach, but our throws official on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Glenn Bartlett, is always willing to offer coaching tips and advice.
We have the patron’s trophy javelin this week, so in order to ensure we can get through that before it gets dark, the weight throw competition will commence at 5:45 sharp.
The WA Marathon Club will be inducting a plaque for John Gilmour on their memorial wall at their clubrooms in Burswood on Saturday 24 November at 3pm
Next year’s programme is now on the website. Sunday runners should use it to select their preferred helper dates. Remember that the earlier you renew, the more likely you are to get your preferred dates.
