MAWA track meets

Posted on

The Prime Minister’s statement this evening made it clear that it is now not ok for a group of 10 or more to congregate even in an open space.

MAWA is therefore cancelling our Tuesday and Thursday track meets with immediate effect.

WAAS tonight

Posted on

John Dennehy was due to open up tonight but unfortunately he has just been called to a meeting tonight and cannot be there. We are unable to get the keys to anyone else at such short notice, so our programme is cancelled.

Of course you are welcome to train, but please follow the protocol of not standing within 1.5 metres from other athletes.

MAWA EVENTS UPDATE

Dear member,

As you will be aware the situation with coronavirus is changing daily. The Government has reinforced advice on social distancing while the majority of sporting events have been cancelled, despite the fact that many are under the 500 limit for outdoor events.

The MAWA committee have therefore decided that we will cancel the upcoming State Championships and all Sunday runs with immediate effect.

We know how much you all enjoy our events and the social interaction, but we think this is the right decision.

We will continue to run our Thursday evening track meets at ECAC and WAAS, with track only from 24th March. As usual there will be no winter competition at WAAS. We typically get 10 – 20 athletes at these meets so social distancing is readily achievable. We will have sanitiser on the table and ask all athletes to handwash before and after touching paperwork or equipment.

Please note that contrary to our programme there will be no morning tea at this run.

MAWA EVENTS

Just to confirm that MAWA Sunday runs, track and field meets and our State Championships will all go ahead as planned.

However from 22nd March we will not allow any visitors at Sunday runs. This is to protect our members who look after the visitor table from the small risk of handling pens, paper, money etc.

This will only last as long as it is necessary.
