Twilight Track Meet, 8 December
The second of the season’s mid-week Twilight Track meetings is on Wednesday 8 December at Newtown Park Track. There will be no entries on the day – we are requesting that anyone wanting to compete should make sure they fill in the season registration form by Tuesday 7 December (if you have already registered you do not need to do so again). The track schedule is:
- 6.15pm – 200m
- 6.30pm – 3000m (note 5000m option subject to confirmation and dependent on sufficient volunteers)
- 6.50pm – 100m
- 7.15pm – 400m
Andy still needs volunteers, particularly at the start and finish areas. Please let him know if you can help.
Night of Miles, December 18
The Scottish Night of Miles is a unique event full of Christmas fun and features races over the rarely run distance of one mile. Each year we collect donations ($5 suggested) from athletes and spectators then hand them on to a local Wellington charity — this year’s charity is the Mary Potter Hospice. The programme consists of a mix of children’s, senior elite and fun social events. There are several different mile races including elite men’s and women’s races.
Track and field season
Most track meets at Newtown Park are free to enter for Wellington Scottish members.
