1 December – AACT Club Relays Red Track Meet

The seventh Athletics ACT (AACT) Red Track Meet for Summer Series 2018/19 was held on Saturday 1st December 2018 at the AIS.

The feature of this Meet was the AACT Club Relay event where Ginninderra Athletics was well represented by almost 50 teams - more than any other club. Woden Thunder were also very well represented and they provided plenty of wonderful and friendly competition in most events.

There was a little bit of controversy with a number of our teams. More to follow on this.

Congratulation go to the following athletes who represented Ginninderra Athletics at this weekend's Meet.

The Club won 12 Gold, 12 Silver and 4 Bronze placings across all ages (14-16, 18-20, and Open/Masters).

Among the notable performances was the Open Men in the club ribbon 4x100m Relay where our team pipped the previously undefeated Woden Thunder. It was an especially sweet result as the team featured two of our up and coming 16M sprinters, one 18M and a 22 year old. Our Open Women's team finished second and didn't have anyone over the age of twenty in the team.

All the teams were bolstered and supported by a magnificent number of our Little Athletes from Endurance Runners, Walkers and Sprinters alike.

Amongst the relays there was also some field events with Stephen Fraser throwing a new club record in the Hammer Throw of 43.31m. Stephen has been in excellent form in all throwing disciplines this season.

Amalie Leslie may have also broken an ACT Para Record and we are awaiting confirmation of the performance!!

We also welcomed Fraser Hawkins our newest Open Male who enjoyed a strong showing in the High Jump 1.80m and Long Jump 6.03m. Fraser is only 10cm off the club record in the High Jump which is very exciting for our talented junior High Jumpers to aspire too.

24 November 2018 – Red Track Meet

The sixth Athletics ACT (AACT) Red Track Meet for Summer Series 2018/19 was held on Saturday 24th November 2018 at the AIS and Friday the 23rd November at Woden (throwers only meet).

Congratulations to the following athletes who represented Ginninderra Athletics at this weekend's Meet.

The notable performances were the handheld 100m times. These cannot be used for records however plenty of promise being shown by the Club's sprinters, especially Edward Nketia's 9.90s.

The 1500m runners also did very well with both the Noor brothers coming very close to the long held club records in their respective ages.

Luke Allard pulled off a new Personal Best in his 400m which is a great accomplishment given the wind conditions.

There was also some star power with para World Champions Scott Reardon and our own Cameron Crombie in action. This gave the younger athletes plenty of inspiration in their respective events.
