2015 Winter Bulletin No. 2

April 7, 2015


With the new athletic year starting on April 1, registration fees are now due.

Your fees will cover your registration until April 1 next year.

Athletic Victoria have increased their portion of the fee for the second year in a row, but the Club has decided to absorb this increase and leave the fees the same as last year.

Register via the member’s portal on the Athletics Victoria website.

If you have any questions about registration, please let us know.

Life members and international representatives should contact the club.


CLUB 5K HANDICAP – This Saturday, April 11 – EVERYONE WELCOME!

The Club’s annual 5k handicap race will be held at the usual venue, along the bike paths at Gardiner’s Creek in Box Hill South, on the morning of Saturday April 11. Meet at 9:00am in the car park next to the Bennetswood bowls club for a 9:30am race start. The run will be followed by brunch. This will be the launch of our winter season and we hope that as many members as possible will come along to race, run or jog the 5km course (or help out with timing and eating the brunch!).

If you plan to run please let us know as soon as possible. Also tell us you best recent time over 5000m (or 3000m or 1500m) and/or estimated 5k time so that a handicap can be calculated for you.



Round 1 of the XCR’15 season will be the cross country relays at Jells Park on Saturday afternoon, April 18.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you are available to compete in this event. We are hoping to enter teams in all age groups, but we need an idea of how many athletes are available to run before we can enter our teams..

Remember that to compete at Jells Park you must be registered for the new 2015/16 season. We also need timekeepers and officials for this day so please let us know if you can help.



The Box Hill Athletic Club Presentation Night will be held at the clubrooms on Friday night, May 1. This is a great chance to celebrate another successful year and we hope that all members can attend. This night will also incorporate the Box Hill Athletic Club annual general meeting.
