Hi Athletes,

Country Championships

The Country Championships were held last week at Casey – some of our own had a run including Liam and Jemima.

Tess Burger has continued her great form in her return to the track with a PB over the summer in the 3000m clocking 11 min 16.06 seconds and easily qualifying for the Junior Maccabiah Games team (11min 30sec). With a summer training session gazetted up in Falls Creek Tess has a big chance to qualify for the Under 18 National Track and Field champs (qualify 11.00min) in the new year. 

Duncan McKinnon Upgrade

The City of Glen Eira and the State Government have announced that the track at Duncan MacKinnon is to be totally re-surfaced from September 2017! This is terrific news as it will turn our training venue into one of the best track and field facilities in the state. It has been a long time coming – but coming it is!
