It is with utmost sadness that I wish to inform all at MPAC of the sudden passing
of ex member Shannon Smith.
Whilst many newer members most likely won't know Shannon I will always fondly remember the jovial, gifted young runner that I shared many a training session, race and laugh with. Deepest sympathies to Shannon's devastated family and especially his partner and 2 young children.
Funeral service will be held at 11am on Wednesday at Bunurong Memorial Park in Dandenong for anyone wishing to pay their respects.
Thanks Cam 1 (3 days ago)Cameron Hall:

Traralgon Harriers ran their 50th Marathon this year. They have asked, " We would desperately like to obtain a photo of anyone who finished the marathon, between 1968 and 2017" as they are preparing a Golden Anniversary publication.
So could those club members who completed the marathon forward a photo, if they have one, to Traralgon Harriers or to me and I can forward it on.
Who else finished this race?
So Cam has posted his photo. Can anyone who completed the marathon either post theirs or send it to me please? (3 days ago)Adrian Foster:
I have a few .. I will send them through .. (2 days ago)Chris Willshire:

Results for Bundoora are now up on the web. MPAC only results are on our website. The AV 'provisional' results are the AV website. However, the schools results are on one page and the open results are on another page.
No team results until probably Wednesday. However, we only had one team yesterday and struggled a bit.
We are still wanting new runners for the XCR17 season. There are 6 races left. Please let us know if you are interested in running or know someone who is.
A few pics from Bundoora. Apologies to Shane for not getting a pic of him. However, since he was not wearing a club singlet I missed him.
A mixed day. Shane Bishop ran well, Rohan Day also looked like he was running well. James Folvig looked to be running well until the 6km mark afterwhich his run had an interruption. Callen Goldsmith also had an interrupted run when he had to stop, take his shoe off, remove an insole, then keep going.
Anyway we managed to get one team result, thanks partly to Shane Bishop for running after a plane trip down from Brisbane and to James Folvig for actually finishing the race. Without these two we not have had a team result in Div 2 men.
Also thanks to Michael Bishop, Guy C Pilkington, Debra Neil and Callen Goldsmith for doing club duty.
Hahaha No worries Craig, I'll have to make sure I 'update' to a new singlet before next one, had a great time 😊 (1 week ago)
At this stage I will not take the club tent, just the teardrop banner.
I will take a heap of Devilbend flyers. Please take some to distribute in appropriate places.
Club Duty from 12:15pm. Please sign in at the AV tent first.
Checkpoint 4 Craig Mahony
Checkpoint 11 Michael Bishop
Drink Station. 12:15 - 2pm Guy C Pilkington. 2pm - 2:25pm Callen Goldsmith, 2:45pm to finish Debra Neil. Please let me know if this does not suit.
All the best tomorrow to those competing.
Guy C Pilkington:
Do they serve wine 🍷 at this drinks station? I'll gladly attend for 2 hours Craig Mahony 2 (1 week ago)
Club Duty at the AV Bundoora Cross Country.
This Saturday MPAC are required to supply 3 club helpers for the afternoon shift. At this stage I do not know what the duties are or exactly what time they start. I imagine they with start around 12:00 to 12:30pm. At this stage Michael Bishop and I will do a duty each. We need one more person to help out please. If you can help out please let me know.
So I can help during the men's event Craig 👍 1 (1 week ago)Craig Mahony:
So we still need someone to do duty during the U20 Women and Men as well as the Open Women. Let me know if you can help please. (1 week ago)
It is 8 weeks until our Devilbend Fun Run.!This is our major fundraiser. So advanced notice that we will be asking for volunteers to help set up the day before and to help out on the day to make this another successful event.
2017 Club Run 3.
This was a new course and started at Dromana Pier. The Open course went all the way to the Safety Beach Yacht Club and back, 8km.
First(and only) U18 in the 4km was Taj Davies having a hit out before Bundoora next weekend.
First in the Open 8km was Jeremy Fraser.
Handicap winner byb 10 seconds was Mike Wheatley.
The results are up on the club website.
It would be great if we could get more to these runs to make them more of an 'event'.
Next event is Bundoora next Saturday. Last reminder to get your entries in.
Apologies Craig, was looking forward to my 1st Club Run for a long while. 'Tweaked' my hammy this a.m. & now hobblin' around like an old bloke again. Oh, that's right ! ;-) Nice course, Well done to those that made it. Will try & offer Mr Beaton some competition in the next one ! 1 (2 weeks ago)
