Melbourne 2019The Chair of the LOC has sent an email explaining a number of aspects of the Melbourne 2019 championships (download as PDF).

"The ‘centrepiece’ of the Social Program is the ‘Athletes & Friends Dinner Party’ on Saturday evening where we are targeting a ‘full house’ of 200 people. With a special guest, Australian Olympic ‘legend’ Ralph Doubell attending, the LOC is planning an entertaining evening. So please encourage your athletes to come along, support Masters Athletics and be part of what should be a memorable event." See here for more details.


Update on 16 March from the Chair of the LOC ( re. entry deadline extended to 26 March) :
"We have decided to extend the entries out until Tuesday week (after Vic Masters State Champs).
We have had a huge response (850 entries!!) which will make this the most attended Nationals for some time but our mantra all along has been to give everyone every chance to attend.
So yes by all means tell your members that it’s going to be big in Melbourne, and that they won’t want to miss this one”…
