The results are up for yesterday's beautiful morning run at Opossum Bay.
Next week, we are back on the road with 2 or 4 laps of a "slightly undulating" 2km lap of Baskerville Raceway.
This course is certainly an experience for those of you who haven't done it before 🙂
Don't forget the following weekend is the Tasmanian Cross Country Championships, which you need to enter in advance (no entry fee) via the Athletics Tas website.Results from the Opossum Bay Cross Country now available: www.athleticssouth.org.au/results/out-of-stadium-results ... See MoreSee Less

For those of you who love pancake flat cross country courses, you are two weeks too late 🙂 For those of you who like challenging undulating courses, with an occasional slight breeze coming off the river, this one is for you.
After a break for the Glenorchy Fun Run, cross country returns tomorrow at Opossum Bay, with a 4.5 and 9km options (U/15s can only do the shorter option).
Don't forget if you haven't already registered, you need to do so by 8pm tonight, and, also remember, don't do a "Josh", and remember to bring your printed barcode 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Further information shall be forthcoming.Unfortunately, complications associated with COVID-19 have meant that we have had to postpone our Annual Awards Night until a date to be advised early in the Track and Field Season. ... See MoreSee Less
Well done to everyone who ran yesterday at Gellibrand Drive, with the rare choice of 3 options due to the waterlogged bottom end of the course.
One big piece of feedback from yesterday is that there were a much larger number than normal of people who didn't have their printed barcodes for scanning.
Please note that it is a requirement to use your printed barcode (phone barcodes are not reliable and don't always work), so, as we now have a week off for the Glenorchy Fun Run, can everyone please ensure that they have a printed copy of their barcode by the time we head back down the South Arm Highway again to navigate Opossum Bay. ...

XC round 3: Gellibrand Drive
After a last minute discovery of a small puddle/dam across the course, some slight changes were made to avoid having a mid-race swim. As a result of this change athletes had the choice of running 3km, 6km or 9km.
Thanks to those who set up and helped out this morning.

After a nice gentle run on the sand at Sandford?? Tomorrow, cross country is a nice flat 4.5/9km run at Gellibrand Drive. You must be already registered for XC, and just get your name ticked off the sheet near the ES flag.
See you there in time for a 10am start.The weather forecast is looking ok for tomorrow’s cross country at Gellibrand Drive and the course is reported to be dry.
Please remember to maintain social distancing wherever practical (1.5m of separation), use the hand sanitiser provided and stay home if you are feeling unwell.

An important (and good news) update from Saturday, and also some important information for competition arrangements going forward.As many would know, Northern Suburbs member Stephen Burnett was involved in a medical emergency during the cross country race on Saturday. His family has advised that he is doing well and remains in hospital awaiting further treatment. They extend their thanks to all those who assisted on the day and to the athletics community for their support.
The Athletics South Winter Committee met last night to review risk management procedures associated with the conduct of Winter Season events.
One of the key points for everyone to remember is that the defibrillator will always be located at the start/finish line (underneath the A-frame sign as it was on Saturday). Duty Clubs are to ensure that it is placed there before each and every event as part of the course setup.
Volunteers acting as course marshals are encouraged to carry a mobile phone with them and obtain the number of someone located at the finish who they can contact in the event of an emergency.
We are fortunate to have a number of medical professionals, as well as people with first aid training amongst our members who are willing to assist. ... See MoreSee Less
