A great day on the Domain yesterday morning with 139 finishers across the 3 distances for cross country.

In the 9.5km, Kylie SMITH was the 2nd female, while Rod MASON in 9th was our best placed male.

In the 6.4km, Ebony WEBB was the first female, with Marcus LENNON the second male. Matt & Fiona LENNON filled the 3rd places for the male and females.

In the one lap race, Jemima LENNON was the best performed ES in 4th place for the females, while Rob STEWART was our best performed male.

A special mention also for the sacrifice made by the Athletics South Public Relations Director who, on a day when the vast majority of 0/40 & 0/50 runners completed 3 laps, or a few carrying niggles did 2 laps, Daniel Smee showed true commitment to his role by just running the one lap so that he could make sure there was a photo of the first 3 finishers in the one lap race, with him in 3rd place. Well done Dan 🙂Results are up for the Domain Cross Country event:

Soldiers Walk cross country - 12.09.2020

Athletes had a chance to take on the hills of today’s course for the second time this season, after state champs were held here a few weeks ago. Some may have been defeated for the second time, some may have redeemed themselves, and a small number may have claimed victory for the second time round 💪👏⛰

Whether you loved the hills or not it was great seeing everyone out there this morning! ☀️

Eastern Suburbs would like to wish a very happy Fathers' Day to all the fathers and grandfathers associated with the Club and with the sport.

We have a proud family tradition, having had many occurrences over the years of parents competing alongside their children across the disciplines of athletics, and at cross country yesterday we even had the (now regular) occurrence of 3 generations of a family participating in the red and white on the streets of Kempton.

Enjoy your day and we hope you are all spoiled.

This week we are off up the Midlands Highway for cross country with 4km and 10km options at Kempton. We are the duty Club, so please give us a hand if you are there. Any easy one to set up, but still needs the same amount on the finish line.The township of Kempton is usually a quiet place but once a year it comes to life when Athletics South hold a round of interclub there.

This Saturday you will be able to indulge in the time honoured experience of a “blockie” around the town, taking in both the main drag and the scenic route past the cemetery.

It’s a 2km fast, flat loop that you have the option of doing twice or five times for those wanting to breathe in the historic atmosphere more deeply.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the burnout marks on the road are the result of local hoons as they are in fact a legacy of Mick Davis’ smoking run from last year.

The race start is conveniently located outside the toilet block in the centre of town, with the assembly area in the park across the road.

It’s a 10am start as usual and it will take you about 40 minutes to travel from Hobart (longer if travelling by horse and cart).

Welcome to the first day of Spring, and more importantly, the first day we can say that track & field starts next month 🙂

It is also a great day to announce that the committee met last week and appointed the Eastern Suburbs Leadership Group for the upcoming season.

A leadership group of 4 has been appointed, and they cover all the disciplines, and also bring a large amount of experience to the roles. These are the people for you to talk to if you have anything that you would like to raise that you may not wish to approach the Committee with. They will also be assisting with relays and other team selections such as the multi event.

We are pleased to announce that the members of the Leadership Group are;

Olivia YOUNG, Marcus LENNON, Michelle COCKERELL and Rachel HOSIE.

Congratulations to these 4, and we are sure that they will be great leaders in the role.
