|Welcome to the Geelong Athletics Website|
Round 1 of AV Shield in at Landy Field on Saturday 10th October. We look forward to seeing all new and returning athletes and officials at the track.
Note that athletes need to be registered to score points for their club. New athletes are welcome to compete as invitation entrants prior to joining a club (2 meetings only).
This season we would like athletes to pre-enter for all events (as per
hurdles in previous years). This will allow the Meet Manager computer
system to prepare entry lists prior to competition starting.
This year we are celebrating the 25th season of Twilight Trot at Eastern Park. A special thank you to McDonald & Co. Real Estate who have supported us for many years.
Round 1 is on Monday 26th October at 6.15pm with a choice of one or two laps of the short course. Distances vary from week to week so you should find a distance that suits you. All participants of all abilities are welcome to attend, whether registered with AV or not.
We look forward to seeing you at Eastern Park near the Rotunda on Monday
evenings. Click the link above for full details.
