There is no Vets competition tonight. Instead there will be our championships on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, combined with the ACTA championships.

Looking at the weekend timetable on the ACTA website, it all looks very low key. Vets names appear to be omitted from the program but events are scheduled, e.g. it apppears a Vets 1500m has been squeezed in at 3:05pm Saturday for men and one at 3:35pm for women, similarly a single 800m for men on Sunday at 2pm and for women at 2:20pm. We are asked to arrive an hour early to check in. Interestingly, I could not see any Vets entries listed on the ACTA website, something has gone wrong there, perhaps?

I won't be running, 1500m is the longest race this weekend, and with my marathon training going so well, I don't want to risk it.


  1. Amazing photo Geoff. Hard to believe hail that heavy making it look like snow.

  2. The photo on CJ's blog is a good one.
