MAWA events

Posted on

The Sunday Run this weekend at the Marathon Club is cancelled.

While Government rules would have allowed us to hold the event, the Marathon Club advised us that their clubhouse will be closed. The logistics of changing the venue and the course are too complicated with just one day’s notice.

The committee will look at options for holding the presentation breakfast.

All MAWA events after this weekend will proceed – Monday training, ECAC on Thursday, all coaching sessions and the Bardon Bash next Sunday.

Throws Coaching for Beginners

Posted on

Glenn Bartlett is going to do a series of beginners throws sessions at ECAC starting this week Thursday 10 June, (may not be possible in inclement weather)

10 June 5.30pm – 6.00pm Discus

              17 June 5.30pm – 6.00pm Discus

              24 June 5.30pm – 6.00pm Shot   

                1 July  5.30pm – 6.00pm Shot

                8 July  5.30pm – 6.00pm Javelin

              15 July  5.30pm – 6.00pm Javelin

He will go through the basics so for those who have never had any throws coaching or at best very rudimentary  lessons during competition, come along you will learn something.

What to Bring:

A towel: it may be wet or at the least the implements will get wet and will need to be dried to throw

Shoes to throw in: for discus and shot break out those old bald soled shoes that slip on wet concrete. For javelin normal runners will suffice.

If you want , bring an exercise book to make notes to help you remember

RRC and RWC 2021

Posted on

We had very strong support this year for the 50km Championship, but less so for the walking event. For the short RRC/RWC events, disappointingly we had no female entrants in the run. We will advertise the short championships more strongly next year.

Congratulations to Chris Lark and Clare Wardle on winning the long events with exceptional times of 3:50 and 4:17 min/km.

Club stalwart John McDonagh took out the men’s Walking Championship while Melissa Lewis clocked an outstanding 6:22 min/km over the 30km distance.

Short event Championship wins went to David Adams, Mike Anderson and Liz Gomez.

Please contact Barbara at vetrunners@iinet.net.au for any mistakes or omissions.
