Hi CLAC Families, Last weekend we ran the annual Handicap day out at Marg Lewis Reserve in Coldstream. The weather was certainly not our finest for the day. It rained quite hard during the 2000m and even with marquees set up at the start/finish line trying to keep everyone out of the elements, still athletes had to contend with the icy weather. Well done to everyone who competed in the conditions still smiles were had and it shows what a great day handicap day is. Congratulations to all who were medallists on the day. We will be handing out the medals this Saturday (hopefully in better conditions). This week is also our Annual Championship Day which is being held up at Morrisons Reserve in Mount Evelyn. Warm ups 8.45am and usual running order. So come along run your best and quickest. Medals will be awarded to the first 3 across the line.
Hi CLAC Families, This weekend we are at Marg Lewis Reserve in Coldstream for an annual Handicap Day. This is one of the most fun events on our XC fixture. It is where start times are put in place for every athlete so that the tail runners become the leading runners and the faster runners then have to try and catch them. It is a change from the normal morning’s proceedings in that we have worked out the times in the age group that you are required to run in. So it’s only just the one race for every athlete on the day, so give it your best. Medals will be awarded to the first three placegetters in each distance. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi CLAC families, Well what a busy time it has been over the past couple of weekends. We have had athletes spread far and wide running in wintery conditions but all the while with smiles abound. Last weekend was the Regional XC Carnival held at Jells Park South. With the rain coming down tents were put up and the course was walked. What a challenging course it was for the first time being out there. Not long after the start a short run through bushland with a turn proved interesting for all athletes with a good foot deep of water being found and having to be crossed or run in. Well done to everyone who competed out there. It was a fantastic morning with everyone trying their best. There were many smiles and good times being posted and with great support shown from the Croydon crew (not to mention our Yarra Ranges buddies). It made for a great atmosphere and enjoyment being had by all.
