The majority of athletes coming to ECAC on Thursday evenings are  going to Darwin for the AMA Championships, 9th – 12th June, including Carol who runs our Thursday meets.

We have decided that it is not worth making alternative arrangements for the very few members who might want to come.

Hence the meet on 8th June in cancelled

Four chances to win the Handicap Trophy

Posted on

Members need only to complete four handicap runs to have a tilt at this year’s Handicap Trophy – and there are just four events left on the calendar.

Right now only seven members have made two runs; 31 have completed just one.

So the Trophy is wide open!

If you have not taken part in a handicap run this season, to complete the required four the 10km on Sunday May 14 at Aquinas is a must.

Risk Management

Posted on

The safety of members at club events is of primary concern to the committee.

We have prepared Risk Management Plans for our WAAS and ECAC events and these are posted on the ‘Our Club’ tab. Members attending these events are requested to make themselves familiar with the plan.

Primary responsibility for ensuring the plans are implemented rests with Campbell at WAAS and Carol at ECAC.
