A big finish is being planned for what has been an exciting season for Manly Warringah Little Athletics – including State Championships, a rescheduled multi-event, King and Queen of the Track events and a rescheduled Presentation Day.
This Saturday (February 29) will include a regular program of competition and will also feature the King and Queen of the Track events. These two 100 metre sprint races will respectively feature the fastest eight male and fastest eight female competitors at our centre, based on 100m times recorded during regular competition this season. The winners of each race will have their names inscribed on a perpetual trophy.
MWLAC will now host its multi-event competition on Saturday March 7. This day had been set down as our presentation day, but due to the cancellation of last Saturday’s competition because of the track and field conditions, the committee wants to provide the opportunity for the multi-event to go ahead.
Therefore, Presentation Day will now be held on Sunday March 29, commencing at 4pm at the track. The later date should also ensure we have all trophies ready to present, after shipping delays due to coronavirus.
And of course, we congratulate all our competitors who have qualified for the State Championships at Sydney Olympic Park on March 14 and 15 wish them the best of luck in their events.
