ATLAS #5 is ready to go!
The final ATLAS meet of the season has been locked in for 6pm on Friday 8 March. Due to the Little Athletics State Champs at the Domain the rest of the weekend we have decided to go BIG. In the field we will be showcasing the Tasmanian Championships for Men’s and Women’s Javelin, as well as watching the Pole Vaulters featuring not 1, not 2, but 3 Tasmanian record holders.
To encourage top performances at ATLAS this week, the organising committee is offering CASH BONUSES FOR QUALIFIERS! Any athlete who scores a qualifier for the World Champs will get a $400 prize, while any athlete who scores a qualifier for the Oceania area champs will be rewarded with a $200 prize.
On the track we will be introducing heats and a final for the Men’s and Women’s 100m, and are inviting every distance runner to get on board for as many graded 800m races as we can squeeze into the program. Finally, we will be showcasing the strong walks community in Tasmania with a 1500m Handicap Walk.
