Good news! Lotterywest has approved a $1500 grant towards the publication of Christine Oldfield’s book celebrating the 40th anniversary of MAWA. Thanks are due to Geoff Brayshaw who undertook the task of preparing and submitting the application. The book will be launched on February 9th at the special anniversary run at McCallum Park.

Congratulations to all MAWA marathon finishers and relay runners. For the third year in a row, Bob Lane wins the Jim Barnes trophy with an outstanding age-graded performance of 85.87%.
We carried out an email survey to our pentathletes regarding the venue for the 2014 State Championships pentathlons. An impressive 75% of you took the time to respond. 27 of you preferred to pay a higher entry fee and be at WAAS. 11 preferred ECAC, while 7 expressed no preference.
In view of this strong preference for WAAS, we have made a booking at WAAS for the pentathlons on Saturday 15th March, 2 weeks prior to the main weekend. WAAS is not available 22nd March because of Little A’s Championships.
MAWA celebrates 40 years in 2014. To mark this achievement there will be a birthday party after the McCallum Lakes run on February 9th. The party will also feature the launch of Christine Oldfield’s book, written to celebrate this anniversary. The programme of activities for the event, and details of how to order your copy of the book, will be published much nearer the time.
After a long absence we will now be regularly posting Sunday run photos on the website. They are on the Photo Gallery page on the Road tab, and are filed in discreet galleries for each run. The club now owns a camera, and Lorraine Lopes has kindly agreed to take the camera home each week and upload selected photos to the website. If Frank or Vic are not available to take the photos, she may ask a non-running member to test their photographic skills. Enjoy.
OMA Championships will be held in Bendigo, Victoria on January 4-12, 2014. A link to the OMA Bendigo website is on the AMA website. Entries open on June 11.
