Interclub Round 13

Interclub  moves to Sunday afternoon this week to allow Relay for Life to use the athletics track.  Its a 2.45pm start with Discus for men.  Women's Shotput is at 3.00pm and as always we are on duty so please come along and help.  Men's shotput is at 4.30pm please help out.  This week the Mile is included in the track program - use your 1500m time to enter.

Relay is 4 x400m - put your name down at the tent.

Athletics South are having a working bee on Sunday March 3rd at 10am - helpers needed.

Also remember - if you are withdrawing from an event please let the official or admin know so you can be scratched, especially for hurdles and sprints.

Remember to check in at the OVA tent and put your name in for the random draw. And sign up for the relay while you are there!

Keep working on those Premiership Points - not too many more rounds to see who gets the Trophy and the Running Edge voucher. Issy Gray and Bailey van den Broek still hold the lead.


Congratulations to Issy Gray and Tene Terblanche on breaking OVA hurdles records last weekend at interclub.

Also to Tom Beard on his win in the 5km Run the Bridge.
