I used to, or am still running for Mornington Peninsula Athletics Club.
A reminder that the entries for the AV Burnley Half Marathon / 6km event are due soon. So those without a season package need to get their entries in. Invitational entries are also available.
Don't forget about our Merricks Trail Run 12km / 5km on Saturday.
Got my dates wrong here. Entries not due until 6th Sept. (5 hours ago)
Falls Creek Training Camp.
Apologies to those who already read this in an email.
This year for our Falls Creek Training Camp we have only booked 20 beds. As a reminder, the camp goes from Wednesday 27th Dec and we check out on Wednesday 3rd January(7 nights). The cost of the camp for members and family will be $40 per night accommodation. Everyone will contribute to communal food.
Whilst previously I sent out an email asking for a deposit by the end of October, after speaking to some people we decided we needed to know this week what sort of interest we have in the camp. So I am asking you to please respond if you are considering attending the camp, even if not for the full seven days. If we do not have 20 people we will open it up to training partners of current members or reduce the booking. If there is more interest we can at this stage book extra.
So please let me know by the end of the week if you are thinking about attending the camp.
Thanks to Jake and Sophie Brennan who have already responded. (12 hours ago)Gary Ewart:

I highly recommend that all athletes, coaches and parents of athletes do the ASADA Level 1 online course for awareness of drugs and supplement issues in sport.
It is at elearning.asada.gov.au
It will also help those doing Year 12 PE.
Some people might be interested in this.
amazing study find, but in the full report of this they are not using 3d cameras for biomechanical analysis, they actually used 10 x 2d cameras filming predominantly in the sagital plane, which does limit their measurements to only over 1-2 degrees of freedom through joint angles (6 days ago)Mike Wheatley:

A reminder that our last Winter Club Run for 2017, the Merricks 12km / 5km Trail Run is this Saturday.
The 12km run is a handicap start so please message me if you will be running this event so I can organise your handicap.
We will be having afternoon tea at the Merricks General Store after the event.

Well done guys (1 week ago)
Tomorrow we have Ethan Anthony, Callen Goldsmith and Joel McGill heading on down to Anglesea for the Surf Coast Relays. We wish them a good race. They had a win earlier in the season.
Additionally, we have Mehdi Hassani competing in the School Sport Australia National Cross Country Championships in the 16-20 AWD division. There are also 7 runners from Mornington Little Athletics Centre running in the Primary divisions. Some of these athletes will hopefully be Dual Claiming with us next season or the season after, We wish them all the best in their races.
School Sport Australia will be live streaming their National Cross Country Championships on their Facebook page tomorrow if anyone is interested in watching.
The Falls Creek Training Camp registration is now open!
The camp is from Wednesday 27th Dec to Tuesday 2nd Jan with check out by 10am on Wednesday 3rd Jan.
It is a great place to do some distance running. The triathletes in the club will also like to do some bike riding. You swim in the dam if you are game!
At this stage we have booked accommodation for 20 people. We need to have indicative numbers by the end of October so we can adjust that booking to accommodate the more or less people that want to go. If by the end of October you are not sure, please at least let me know you are interested and still thinking about it.
The cost is $40 per night for adults and $30 per night for 15 years and under. Family members get club membership prices. Non members are welcome for an extra $5 per night. This does not include food.
Those wanting to go, please book at least one of the days as a deposit. To make a booking go to
