Girraween Centre Championships
Sunday 31 January 2021 @ CV Kelly
Our centre championships is a run as one-day multi-event – athletes compete in hurdles, sprints, middle distance, jumps and throws.
Athletes earn points in each event – the better the performance the better the points. Athletes with the most points after all events are completed in each age group are awarded 1st 2nd and 3rd place – importantly all competitors (even those that don’t place) receive trophies on the day.
To be eligible athletes needed to have attended 7 competition nights prior to Xmas – the list of eligible athletes can be found here.
