LAACT Relay Championship registration

The LAACT Relay Championship is being held on Saturday 16th December at the Woden Synthetic Athletics Track near the Canberra Hospital.

The Association requires Athletes to pre-register to avoid having to spend 30 minutes writing names on the Field event result sheets.

Ginninderra Athletics is asking every member to consider representing the club at the first Association Carnival of the season. This is our chance to come together as a Club and participate as one. There is no limit on the number of athletes or teams a Club can enter.

Please complete the club's pre-registration form. We'd love to see a sea of Yellow at Woden this December.

 

Subway Goodsport Award

This Season, Ginninderra Athletics has partnered with Subway Charnwood to provide one Goodsport Award for the most deserving Boy and Girl in each Age Group every week.

The Goodsport Award will be presented to the Athlete who goes out and beyond in the support, encouragement, determination and exemplification of the ideals of Family Fun and Fitness at Ginninderra Athletics.

Tigers who receive this award will have shown the best of behaviours, showing the best of the Club, that week in their age group.

Subway Charnwood will provide in exchange for the award certificate a Subway Six Inch Sub of the athlete's choice.

Athletes names will appear in the Goodsport Hall of Fame displayed at the Canteen and one lucky Athlete's personal story will be posted on Facebook to accompany their award.

Join Ginninderra Athletics this season and enjoy the Subway Inclusion Program each week with the Tigers.

Winter Fun Runs have started

The University of Canberra Ginninderra Athletics Club have commenced the 2017 Winter Cross Country Series on Lake Ginninderra each fortnight.

Every Cross Country event isn't measured by the amount of Personal Bests someone gets, it is also gauged by how it can be just as much fun for everyone doing it.

The Tigers' Fun Run course starts and finishes at the idyllic Waterfall on Lake Ginninderra. The route loops itself in a figure eight around John Knight Memorial Park and the UC Bushland near Ressies with good views of the Roos of UC.

There are many undulating sections with grass, bike path, the odd muddy dirt trail and some small water jumps to enjoy along the 1.5km, 2km, 3km, 4km and 5km distance of your choosing. For the older runners doing 3 to 5km the course repeats itself to double up the challenges in the second half of each route.

Winter Cross Country is as close as you can get to Playing at running.

The course with its different elements allows imagination and creativity to take place, and there is no particular rules and no significant physical exertion for fun and self-amusement necessary.

The next Cross Country fun run is on the 29th April 2017 starting at 8:45am at Lake Ginninderra and the first Run_ACT Winter Junior Series is on the 7th May 2017 at Stromlo Forest Park. For more information visit the University of Canberra Ginninderra Athletics Club for all the details.

The leaderboard in the run up to this Saturday is:

Houses compete for Points on House Days that are based on team and individual performances as well as spirit, sportsmanship, personal bests and attendance.
