Here is some information re the status of events upcoming in the next few months.

As you may be aware, the Round The River Fun Runs have been postponed to a date to be determined, and the City To Casino will not be held in 2020.

We will not be setting a date for the Eastern Suburbs Awards Night until things settle down, while the Athletics South Awards Night will be discussed at next week's AS Meeting, but we will certainly be supporting a deferment of that event.

Please continue to stay fit, but also stay safe, and remember the 1.5 m socially safe distance, even if you do continue your training.In relation to the statement released by Athletics Australia yesterday postponing all athletics events until May 1, AT has reviewed upcoming events on the calendar and made changes to competition and planned AT events.

Stay safe and healthy everyone 🙏

Congratulations to all those who represented the Club so proudly over the weekend, and also a big thank you to all out volunteers and officials who helped out with a busy weekend.

Stand by for a summary of all the highlights of the weekend, but at this stage, we would like to farewell Jane HICKIE, who flew to Canberra last night, to start the next stage of her education.

Jane delayed her departure for long enough to top the podium 5 times at the weekend, 4 times as an individual (100 Hurdles, 400 Hurdles, Long Jump and High Jump) and 1 as a member of our Open 4 x 100m relay team.

We wish Jane all the best and thank for all the commitment she has shown to the Club and the sport over a large number of years.
