Competition begins for 2020-21 season

Tuesday 13th of October saw a return to competition for the Gippsland Athletics Club.

Due to the hard work of the committee and the management at Latrobe Leisure Centre to meet the COVID requirements the club was able to start the season.

The numbers were not large and the weather was not great, but we managed to successfully run 5 events, 200m, Discus, 1500m, Hammer Throw and the 100m.

Hopefully soon the restrictions are eased and the rest of the season can go ahead without the very demanding COVID requirements.

We are lucky to be one of the few places in the state to have started back.

The club is using a QR code to help meet our requirements for COVID tracing.

If you are coming along and want to fill it out before you arrive, here is a link to the QR code.

See you next Tuesday!
