Congratulations to our two winners, Margaret Saunders with 4:35m/km and Jim Klinge with 4:28m/km.
The committee felt there were a number of factors that contributed to the poor participation level, and have agreed to hold a further championship next year, along with a corresponding short walks championships.
10k track racing, (updated)
Members are reminded that there is no longer a 10k track race as part of the Patron’s Trophy. If anyone wants to do a 10k track race this year the 2 options, both called John Gilmour, are very close together. The AWA event is at WAAS on 28th October, while the WAMC event is at ECAC on 3rd November. See respective websites for details.
New Strive Season
MAWA athletes are reminded that we pay a lump sum to AWA so that all of our athletes are registered with AWA. So MAWA athletes do not need to independently register, just pay the weekly entrance fee. The AWA registration gives ALL MAWA members personal accident insurance whenever they are competing or officiating/helping at MAWA events.
Summer Throws Competitions
Our summer competitions have commenced at WAAS and ECAC, and the programme is now on the website.
For this season Glen Bartlett has kindly agreed to come each week, starting 19th October, to judge the competitions at ECAC. This will greatly enhance the competitions and ensure that any records can be readily ratified.
With the new hammer cage, and new caged weight throw facility, ECAC is now the ideal venue, and we are hoping that our many MAWA throwers will come along and enjoy these competitions.
We are also endeavouring to make sure that the WAAS Tuesday competitions are independently judged
Vine Runner Events
Please see the poster on these events on Saturday 9th December
New vetrun magazine is now available. Head to the Magazines Tab on the website to download.
Helpers needed Sunday
We urgently need helpers for our next run on Sunday 8 October at Burswood (Mattagarup Run)
If you have missed your turn and are able to help please contact Race Director Wayne Pantall 0415 684 368 or email the secretary email@example.com
We have experienced a large drop out lately of helpers who are scheduled to help but unable to come. If you aren’t sure of your commitments you can check the Helper List under the “Road” menu. It has the contact number for each Race Director.
When you join please make note of the dates you have nominated to help and put them in your diary or calendar.
If something unavoidable comes up preventing you from helping please contact the Race Director or Volunteer Coordinator as soon as you know!
This will give us more time to find replacements and enable us to re-schedule volunteers to help on another date.
Each event requires a certain number of helpers to hold the run safely and although we allow for a few spares it makes it very difficult for the organisers when nearly half drop out.
Thank you for your support!
