LAACT Relay Carnival – 15 December 2018

The 2018 LAACT Relay Carnival is this Saturday 15th December at Woden Park near the Canberra Hospital.

If you didn't get to register online (by Wednesday 5/12/18) don't panic you can still turn up on the day for this carnival! It is free.

To make your experience as good as possible we have prepared some tips for you:

  • Athletes are to be accompanied by an adult/guardian etc for the day (I think we decided that this is the case)
  • Upon arrival please check in with the GAC team at the yellow tent to get your child’s name ticked off.
  • Competitors will need to have a Coles badge on the front of their uniform to be able to compete (available on the day at the GAC tent)
  • If you are unable to fill the volunteer shift allocated to you, please find a replacement and let the GAC team at the yellow tent know.
  • Slip, slop, slap and bring plenty of H2O
  • For U6 to U8 suggested arrival time is 8:15am.
  • For U9 to U17 suggested arrival time is 10:15am.

Twilight Meet - Friday 14th December 2018

2018 Little Athletics ACT Relays – Nominations are now being taken

 

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.

The first Athletics ACT (AACT) Red Track Meet for Summer Series 2018/19 was held on Saturday 6th October 2018 at the AIS.

Some fantastic results from the following athletes who represented Ginninderra Athletics at the annual AACT Come & Try Day. Many of the below athletes have never participated in a Red Track Athletics Meet before.

There were fantastic records broken as well with Augustine Nketia breaking the U16B 200m Record with 22.88s and his older brother Edward Nketia breaking the U20M 200m Record with 21.85s. Austin Tetteh also broke the U16B 200m record with 23.19s which has stood since 2001 - an amazing 17 years and broken twice in the same race. Caleb Jolifee 1.55m broke the M40 High Jump record.
