Relay event 13th August and proposed new club competition

Posted on

MAWA members are invited to participate in a Cross-Country team event on the 13th of August 2022 at Yellagonga Regional Park.

 The team’s event – Squad vs Squad – if successful, would be introduced to the Athswest Winter Athletics calendar as a ‘series’ in future seasons.

 They are currently looking at either a relay or points-based format.  Teams would consist of 5-7 members depending on the format, and can be either male, female or mixed.  The distance of the event would be 3-4 kms for a relay, or up to 7km for a single points race. More details are available here.

The hope is to build some good, fun, and competitive rivalry amongst WA’s distance runners/squads/clubs, much like what is experienced in the Eastern States, the US and Europe.

 Should any members be interested in participating they should contact Chris Stansbury, 0423 290 176. Teams can be submitted through Athletics West when the details are available on the website in a few weeks.

Currently there are several squads/clubs interested in the event including, Perth Distance Project, Infinity Run Squad, UWA athletics, Mathew Ramsdens Squad, plus more…

Can you help?

We need someone to bring the clock, defibrillator, loud speaker, stand and container of batteries on Sunday mornings. Ideally it would be one person who comes regularly but it could be shared or a roster organised. Anyone who takes this on will be exempt from other helper duties so will always be able to run or walk the event. If you can help please contact us on mawasecretary@gmail.com

Congratulation to our Course Measurement Officer, Steve Weller, who has just been upgraded from a level ‘C’ certifier to level ‘B’.

This means that any course measured by Steve will now receive a World Athletics Measurement Certificate and can display the World Athletics Certified logo.

It is great for our club that we now have a highly qualified Course Measurer.

Race Directors who think their course may be suitable for certification can contact Steve.
