Events have been added to replace the two cancelled commercial runs – Run for a Reason on 23rd May and City to Surf on 29th August. See this revision.
There will be a judged 2000m track walk after completion of the other events at ECAC on 27th May.
There are Australian records for this unusual event.
Following last night’s announcement by the Premier, all future MAWA events will proceed as normal.
Based on current Government covid rules the following will apply:
ECAC Thursday 29th
This will go ahead but as this is a venue only 20 are permitted. We will not allow visitors and based on the past two weeks we will stay under the 20. As a last resort distance runners can warm up outside and enter the arena as sprinters leave. There will be no shot putt. Masks must be worn when not running.
Weir Run May 2nd
This will go ahead as it is classed as community sport which is allowed. Whether or not masks need to be worn when not running will depend on Government announcement on Friday.
Due to the new lockdown the Sunday Run at Bold Park and the Monday training at ECAC are both cancelled.
A smaller entry than usual enjoyed perfect conditions for a competitive and enjoyable race. Congratulations to John Fisher for winning the trophy. See the results.
Just a reminder that entries for the track handicap on 22nd April close at midday on 22nd April. Entries to Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org
With Vetrun published only every other month, members have to wait up to 8 weeks to read our Sunday Run reports.
We have therefore established a new website page, Sunday Run Reports, found under the ‘Road’ tab. Reports will be published in the week following the run.
We are just about to start working on the 2021/2022 Sunday Programme. There are at least a couple of runs we would like to retire and would welcome ideas from members for new runs. They must meet the following:
- There must be a good size car park
- There must be toilets
- The course must not cross any roads, (very minor road crossing may be ok in some locations but some councils prohibit entirely)
- Preferably an interesting and scenic course
Ideas should go to Gillian at email@example.com accompanied by a sketch of the course.
The winter programme at ECAC is now on the website right sidebar.
