We desperately need a Race Director for the MATTAGARUP RUN on 22 SEPTEMBER.   This is a straightforward 10K/5K course from Burswood over Windan Bridge through East Perth and back to Burswood via the Causeway.  Helpers have been arranged.  The Race Director will need to collect the equipment from Darlington Dash the week before.  If you can help, see Paul Hughes or Val Millard at a Sunday run, or contact Val on mawasecretary@gmail.com or phone 6468 7720,

Oceania Throws Pentathlon Challenge

Posted on

Oceania Throws Pentathlon Challenge will be held during September 2013. Any thrower who is interested in competing should check out the information  on the NZ Masters Athletics Website http://nzmasters.org.nz/throws_pentathlon/throws_pent.html  and then contact Val Millard mawasecretary@gmail.com.  If there is sufficient interest, a local organiser will need to be appointed, so a thrower needs to be prepared to take on this job.
