Special Event-Robert Walters Gift

To mark the first week back at school for most of our athletes and parents, we are holding a special event on the Friday, 7 February, starting at 5.00pm.  The aim of the event is to be fun, exciting and an opportunity for all athletes to set a PB.

Named after our major sponsor, the Robert Walters Gift will have medals on offer for both a 120m sprint handicapped race, and a middle distance race across the age groups. The handicapping will go from 120m to 70m – younger athletes may have a 50m head start! It is sure to be exciting to watch!

In a first for UWALAC we will be using athlete’s current 100m sprint PB time to handicap races in three groups (U7-9, U10-12, U13-17) with separate girls and boys races to get down to a semi-final and final – where we will combine 4 girls and 4 boys. The winners will receive medals  Remember, the races are handicapped so everyone has a chance!

For those athletes who prefer a longer race, we will be holding the following separate races for girls and boys:

  • 1000m for U7-8
  • 1500m for U9-10
  • 2000m for U11-12
  • 3000m for U13+

As the longer races will be a first for us, inaugural records will be set by the winning athletes! Medals will be awarded for each separate age-group and gender.  It is a great chance for athletes to compete in our winter cross country distances.

Remember, the aim of the evening will be to have fun, and to compete in a different type of event.

To ensure we can marshal and coordinate the handicaps for the 120m sprint, you will need to nominate your athlete by 9pm February 4th.

The Robert Walters Gift will be the only event at UWALAC, as the weekend of 8 and 9 February will be the State Multi Champs.
