What a night at the Whitehorse Twilight!

November 29, 2018

Box Hill Athletic Club’s inaugural Whitehorse Twilight event on Thursday attracted hundreds of athletes from near and far, all hoping to record strong performances on the new track.

There were many personal and season bests, and the success of the event bodes well for the Box Hill Classic in March next year.

A big thank you to chief organisers Peter Stefanos and Steve Dinneen, as well as the contingent of Athletics Victoria officials who gave their time and expertise to make the night a success and ensure those national qualifying performances were sanctioned.
