There will no meeting on 28th March. On 4th April the track will be available for training from 6pm to 7pm. Winter programme will start on 11th April
There will be no programme on 2nd April and the winter programme will start on 9th April.
During the winter at WAAS there will be no exclusive MAWA hour so we must vacate the track by 7:30pm. Therefore in order to complete our events, we will revert to a 6pm start.
Don’t forget that WAAS is not available on 12th March.
The Winter Programme will be on the website by late March.
Old T & F Results
The Old T & F Results page under the Archives Tab has now been constructed. It contains a wide range of results, from MAWA events through to National and World Championships. There are also some archived club results from the 1970’s, for those with a historical interest.
This completes the work of re-constructing the website under the new platform. This project was started in June last year by Ernie Leseberg and continued by Hamish McLeod.
Comments or suggestions on website content are welcome through the ‘Contact MAWA’ button.

Old vetruns now on website
A major initiative to place all the old vetruns on the website has been completed. This has been a time consuming task, and thanks in particular go to:
– John Oldfield for driving the project and for his work to set up the structure on the website and upload some early vetruns
– Jackie Halberg, Bob Hayres and Jeff Whittam for making their collections of magazines available for scanning
– Paul Martin for scanning and copying
– Hamish McLeod and Richard Blurton for uploading onto the website
The archive is on the magazines tab. It is an invaluable record of our history, and we commend members to have a read. You will uncover some gems. On a quick glance at a 1976 vetrun I discovered that:
– Jim Langford recorded the first marathon time under 2:20 by a West Australian
– A proposal to add orienteering, soccer, swimming and cycling to vets athletics championships was defeated
– A proposal to eliminate walks from our events programme was also defeated
