As part of our commitment to the development of the next generation of athletes, the WesTrac Bunbury Geographe Gift has partnered with Bunbury and Districts Little Athletics to run clinics and a competition during the event.

Friday April 27th :

11am – 12pm – Sprinters clinic for Little A’s and their parents at the Mondo track @ Hay Park Bunbury. The session will be hosted by elite coach Lyn Foreman with Riley Day, Jack Hale and Trae Williams all there to pass on their knowledge to athletes U11 and up.

6pm – 10pm: Q&A Pasta Night with the stars. $38 pp for a feed of homemade pasta, salad and garlic bread and the opportunity to interact with Trae, Jack and Riley, asking them questions about their careers and their performances at the recent Commonwealth Games.

Saturday April 28th:

We have been able to fit a number of events for Little Athletes of all ages and abilities into the schedule of the main events. Nominations for these events must be in by April 20th to give us time to sort out handicaps – we cannot accept late nominations or nominations on the day:

70m for athletes who were in the U7 to U10 age group categories for the 2017-18 season

100m & 1600m for athletes who were in the U11 to U15* in the 2017-18 season.

400m for U10 to U15* athletes:

Under 15* is only open to those athletes who are still 14. Those who have turned 15 between October 1st and April 28th compete in the U20 and Open category races for major cash prizes – entries had to close on April 7th for these events so the handicapper has time to set marks.

All races are handicap races based on athlete’s performances throughout the 2017-18 LA season so heats of the U11 to U15 100m might look like…

So you don’t need to be the fastest runner, you just want to have the need to compete. Winners of the final in each category will receive a commemorative Sash and trophy along with Gift vouchers from Intersport Bunbury. There will be numerous spot prizes/gift packs from Intersport Bunbury.

Sunday April 29th:

Bunbury Gift Day where the stars will go head to head to win major cash prizes! There will also be lots of other entertainment to keep the whole family entertained on and off the track.
