2019 Athletics South Winter Program

Cross Country (Out of Stadium) Competition with Eastern Suburbs is summed up as a Fun Run every Saturday morning, followed by a cup of coffee with friends.

Eastern Suburbs members participate in the Athletics South Out of Stadium season, which runs from April to September at various locations around the greater Hobart area. They also represent the Club in Tasmanian Cross Country and Road Running Championships (including Marathon/Half Marathon) conducted by Athletics Tasmania across the year.

Cross country has the appeal that the whole family can compete on the same course at the same time, without having to sit around and wait for different age groups. All Saturday morning runs start at 10am, with a nominal weekly entry fee.

Members can be any age from 9 upwards and we are proud to have a number of families who have 2 and even 3 generations competing regularly each Saturday morning.

Take the next step up from just doing the regular Tasmanian Fun Run Calendar, and experience the fun and personal development with encouragement from like minded people on a weekly basis.

Ober the long involvement of Eastern Suburbs in Cross Country, we have been proud to have a large number of athletes representing Tasmania at all distances from Schools and under age Cross Country, to the Australian Marathon/Half marathon Championships, as well as at Masters (Over 30) level at Australian and International level.

But just as importantly, we are immensely proud of our long history of people who proudly wear the red and white in local competitions and fun runs accompanied by a huge smile, regardless of where they finish in the event, and with their personal goals in mind.

Eastern Suburbs

For those interested in running or walking the Point to Pinnacle in November, entries open tomorrow morning at 7am.

This year is the 25th Anniversary of the Point to Pinnacle, and one of the constants over that time has been Eastern Suburbs' presence on the various drink stations, which have grown from a card table and a couple of McDonalds at the Chalet, to now 6 large drink stations at various points along the course.

Every year feedback is received about the friendliness and encouragement from the people on the drink stations, rain, hail, shine or snow.

If you aren't up to completing the event, but would still like to be a part of the fun, please let us know, and we will add you to the list of people making up one of the 6 great crews on the day.ENTRIES WILL GO LIVE AT 7:00am in the morning. We would like to also announce that as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations we will be holding a limited ticket dinner (200 tickets only) on Saturday 16th November at Wrest Point. Be prepared to be blown away by Australian Running Legends Steve Moneghetti, Andrew Lloyd, Shaun Creighton & Pat Carroll as they share stories about each of their running careers. Time will also be made for a Q&A session and provide a chance to personally meet with these absolute legends of running. Tickets can be purchased as a part of your P2P registration www.pointtopinnacle.com.au

Track And Field

Eastern Suburbs Athletic Club has been a major Club within the Tasmanian athletics scene for more than 60 years, having been formed in 1955.

Have you ever dreamed of representing Australia at an Olympic or Commonwealth Games. Or do you just like to challenge yourself by taking part in regular competition with a great bunch of friends.

Over the years, many ESAC members have experienced both of the above, as well as every other emotion and achievement in between.

We offer a friendly welcoming environment into the sport of athletics, regardless of your ambition, ability, motivation or goal.

Competition in Track and Field is conducted by Athletics South at the Domain Athletic Centre from October until March, as well as the opportunity to compete at Tasmanian Championship level at various age groups.

We also offer opportunities in officiating, an area in which you can also reach levels such as Olympic Games officiating, just as easily as you can be trained to hold a tape or rake a pit, key roles in athletics competition at any level, from interclub to international.

Come along and try the sport before you make a commitment, or if you are ready for the next step into competition, clink on the “Join” button above. There is no regular commitment, if you are there on competition day, you will have our full support, and if you don’t feel like it, come along anyway and we will put a smile on your face and encourage you to compete.

We welcome members aged from 9 to 90, and if you are younger, contact us and we will put you in contact with the Little Athletics Centres we associate with, and they will help you out until you turn 9.
