Christmas Gift Event

Posted on

Sunday 18 December is the date of our special Christmas Gift event. This year we are at Burswood Park and the run, jog or walk starts at 7.30.
There is no set distance, no marshals and no clock. You can run, walk, jog or even dance your preferred distance. Wear your best Christmas outfit and you could be one of three to win a prize.
If you would like to take part in the gift sharing, please bring along a wrapped gift to the value of $10 to place under the tree and then, when your age-group is called, you can choose a gift from under the tree.
All this is followed by a special Christmas morning tea for all to enjoy.

Sunday Run Change

Posted on

We have just discovered that Perth Festival events take place in Neil Hawkins Park in Joondalup in February and the local Council will not let us hold our run on the planned date.

We are therefore making a straight swap:

Lake Monger is now 19th February at 7am

Joondalup is now 19th March at 7:30am

The revised programme is now on the website – if you normally print it we suggest you destroy the previous print out.

If you are down as a helper at either run and cannot make the new date, please let Jim Langford know.

Patron’s Trophy

Posted on

Due to the closure of WAAS, this year’s Patron’s Trophy was set up with just one eligible date for each event. This is proving to have a detrimental affect on the competition as inevitably some athletes are missing their best events through no fault of their own.

The committee have decided that this has to change. A second eligible date has been added for each event and:

  • The new programme has been posted on the website
  • As in previous years athletes can do both eligible dates and their best score will be used
  • If an athlete who is not currently in the Trophy is now able to do it, that is fine
  • It means the Trophy extends to end January
  • As Barbara indicated at the time the 400m trophy event on 10th November is null and void. Two further 400m dates have been identified.

We are sure this change will re-invigorate this year’s competition and lets hope we get as exciting a finish as last year.

New Year’s Day Run Cancelled

Posted on

The Race Director is now not able to direct the run and despite repeated pleas we still only have 3 helpers out of a total of 12 required.

The committee have therefore decided to cancel this run.

We will designate a group jog for the venue – members can do our normal Claypit Circuit 3.5k lap.
