It was a great day for athletics today. Round 8 was held at Casey Fields with Williamstown being the alternate venue.
We did not have that many competitiors at Casey Fields but Wil and Ollie Pratt made up for it by doing 5 events each. Ollie gave Wil a lesson on how to run 1500m but Willie Pratt returned the favour by giving Ollie a lesson in 400m.
Meanwhile Michael Bishop and Ethan Anthony had a run in the 5000m at Williamstown. Ethan had an impressive run with a 16:05. This was the best performance of the day from an MPAC member gaining 423 points.
The results for the day are on the club website and will be put on the AV Website during the week.
Round 9 see the home venue being Lakeside on FRIDAY evening with a 6pm start. It is a short program and only has the sprint hurdles, 200m 800m and 4 x 100m relay on the track. The field events are as usual more or less. The alternate venue is at Meadowglen which has a walk, long hurdles, 100m, 400m and 1500m on the track. The alternate program starts at 1pm.
Just a note. You can compete both days if you want and points from both days will count.

Just as we're getting used to the idea of heart rate zone training in our running, there's a new metric in town, Heart Rate Variability (HRV). But before…
In order to promote the club and have a bit of fun we would like to put in a team for the Australia Day Fun Run in January. I have created a Mornington Peninsula Athletic Club team.
