Want to win some steigen socks tomorrow, courtesy of The Running Edge? Charge your watches and click for a split when you start, turn around (x3) and finish. (Cover your watch face with masking tape for a true pacing challenge!) Post a screenshot or photo of your splits to the Athletics South post - the two people with the most even 800m splits win the socks.If watches aren't your thing, never fear, we'll be back to a lucky draw next week.Spot prizes for tomorrow’s John Keenan Memorial at Seven Mile Beach will be based on who can run the most even 800m splits.The course is an out and back loop of 800m, so press lap on your watch at each turn around point and send us a photo of your splits.The catch is that you can’t look at your watch until after you finish!##Settings have been changed, you should now be able to add screenshot. The cut off for this is 8pm tonight!! ... See MoreSee Less

Don't forget that tomorrow for cross country, we are off to Huntingfield Pony Club.Spot prizes this year are being done a bit differently, so see the following post for what you need to look for 🙂 Make sure they are rescued or Ale might have a lonly night on Saturday night.The Running Edge will once again be providing two pairs of Steigen socks as Spot Prizes for each round of Winter Interclub.However, rather than the usual random draw, new AS Winter Director Eloise Fisher has come up with some novel ways to determine the winners.For tomorrow’s event at Huntingfield, you will need to keep an eye out for one of two toy animals (as shown in the photo) that will be hidden somewhere in the bush around the course.Grab one of these and return it to Eloise after the race and you will win the Steigens.Note that you can only win one pair and please don’t mistake a native animal for a toy and try and bring that back.Happy hunting! ...
