Prizegiving – COVID allowing, we hope to hold a prizegiving this year. Whilst things may change by then we will plan on the current rules.
An event for all abilites with the unique ability to race on a Golf Course with a rolling aspect and good underfoot conditions, suitable for spikes. Although adjacent to a main road the event offers a safe environment for families, with kids able to finish their 3k run whilst their parents continue in their own event.
There is a 3k run for Students $7, a 3k and 6k walk and 6k and 9k run, all $15. Online entries close at 10pm Thursday 15th April. We much prefer ‘online’ entries however we will take late entries on the day but ask that you bring the correct cash. A ‘late’ fee of $5 will apply.
All athletes start at the same time and will complete one, two or three 3k circuits. Athletes will be issued with a race number and will recieve a finishing time and certificate.
The Golf Course will reopen to Members at 11am. Please ensure you or your supporters do not run or walk on any of the Greens. It is a privilege to have access to the Course – we don’t want to lose that.
All proceeds go into a Travel Fund to assist our Club’s athletes on representative duties. Thanks for your support.
A Special Event – for those that are interested there will be a ‘Speed Golf’ event starting at about 12pm. This will have a $5 entry and your welcome to give this a go. I think there will be 9 and 18 hole options. You take just a few clubs and do your best. I’m not a great golfer, handicap 24, or runner, but I have played to my handicap and taken under an hour for 18 holes. Don’t be shy, it’s a fun event, have a go.
