We don't need pavement to explore.....



Dear Harriers,
As many of you are aware, Athletics Australia announced today 18/03/2020 that they are suspending all athletics competitions until May 1 due to risks associated with COVID-19.

"This includes local and state cross-country, track and field and road events".
In summary, our Cross Country season which was due to start this Saturday, March 21, will not get underway until after May 1. It is impossible at this stage to inform you of the make up of our season without knowing when we will be restarting. The committee will in time decide on the contents of the season and inform members as information arrives.
The club's AGM  will also be postponed to a date most likely in May.
The club's committee fully supports Athletics Australia's decision on suspending events until after May, 1. We have been in the process of cancelling this Saturday's events when Athletics Australia released their statement. The member's health and well being will always be our first priority.
Further information will be emailed to members and posted on the member's Facebook page and Team App as it comes to us.
Please all keep well and I will look forward to seeing you when the season commences.
