Athletics training returns to new North Park track

STAWELL Amateur Athletic Club will revive weeknight track and field events at North Park next Tuesday after a lapse of more than fifteen years.

In its heyday, the club had as many as 30-40 runners competing Tuesdays on the old track.

Impetus for the return is the opening of the new North Park running track, a facility the club is proud of and one they are determined to utilise.

“Competition stopped through a lack of numbers,” Stawell Amateur Athletic Club president, Keith Lofthouse said.

“The deterioration of the old track into something you wouldn’t want to run on had to be a factor.”

Bob Freeland has been the main man behind getting the competition back up and running.

Already conducting Monday night training sessions at Central Park he will back up again the next day and that shows how dedicated he is to the revival

Races will be conducted over a variety of distances from 70 metres to three kilometres from 6.00pm right through summer.

Runners of all ages and abilities are invited to pit themselves against the clock.

Discus, shot put, long jump and triple jump events will be organised for those interested and walkers are welcome.

Freeland will offer training advice and programmes and the only costs will be a $5 registration for non-members and a gold coin donation on the night. For details phone Bob Freeland on 53583300 or the club on 53562493.
