The athletes enjoyed some fantastic weather over the weekend, with school back and footy finished.
Only thing left to do is athletics!
An amazing turnout of future Olympians at Yarra Ranges Athletics Saturday morning’s Little Athletics round.
They even needed two heats of the little kids’ race … awesome!
Well done to everyone who had a go at the various events on offer, great to see so many budding hurdlers showing some outstanding early season form.
Don’t forget to confirm your availability for relay events coming up.
The seniors competed in Round 2 of AV Shield, with club athletes competing at Werribee and Frankston.
Well done to all who competed and the fantastic performances.
Check out the website for results to see if we had more club records broken.
Can we have more than the 10 records from last weekend?
Next weekend our seniors compete at Nunawading and Meadow Glen while our Little Athletics Athletes enjoy the comfort of competing on our home track at Mount Evelyn.
Please remember that Little Athletics starts at 9am sharp with warm-ups from 8.45am.
Please get there early to help with set-up.
