Sunday Run 13th May

Posted on

We have been advised that there is construction work at Aquinas School and that we are unable to have our run there.

Race Director Giovanni has found a very good alternative. The run that day will be at Curtin.

The Sunday Programme has been changed, and details of the new run can be found in the Events Calendar from the About Us tab.

If you print out the yearly programme, we suggest that you destroy your copy and print it again.

At ECAC we have to borrow high jump equipment from Little A’s. Unfortunately they will not be there this week and we have ascertained that they have no-one who can unlock the equipment. So unfortunately the event is cancelled.

There is high jump at WAAS tonight
