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.
AMA Cross Country Championships
This event will be held as part of the all-ages Australian Cross Championships in Adelaide.
All members of State Masters Clubs are eligible and should enter through the AA website.
Note that the plan for future years is that an all-ages Australian Championships will replace the Cross Country event at the AMA National Track and Field Championships.
Due to the current Government restrictions the meeting at ECAC this week is cancelled.
An announcement about the Sunday Run and Presentation Breakfast at the Marathon Club will be made later this week on the website and on Facebook. If the event does go ahead, the breakfast will start at 9am while the presentations will start at 9:15 and run for no more that 30 mins.
The 4th event tonight should of course read 200m and not 1200m.
AMA Postal 20km Walk Championship
AMA are again allowing postal entries for the 20km Walk Championship.
Fortunately the WA State 20km Walk Championships on 15th August falls within the qualification period and meets all technical requirements.
Any member wishing to enter the AMA postal event should access an entry form from the AMA website.
NSW Masters Athletics 50th Anniversary Lunch
NSW Masters Athletics is calling all past members to join them for a lunch on Sunday 19 September 2021 to celebrate their special milestone.
You can only nominate one event and it must be either the Club Half Marathon on 20th June or the WAMC Half Marathon on 1st August
Entry must be submitted at least 72 hours before the event
Entry Fee is $20
RRC and RWC 2021
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.
