Service Victoria Contact Tracing App for VU Aths Track

Service Victoria Contact Tracing App for VU Aths Track

As a condition of using the VU Aths Track we are still expected to sign in. We are also expected to have Return to Play Guidelines.

The simplified guidelines are attached. After consulting with some athletes and Committee members it appears that most people find the Service Victoria app more user friendly, so from now on we will be using the Service Victoria app for Contact Tracing purposes.

The QR Code and location number is on the fence near the entry gate and also on the noticeboard.

XCR 21 Round 1 Race Wrap Jells Park Relays

XCR 21 Round 1 Race Wrap Jells Park Relays

It was a great start to the season and, with the complete cancellation of the 2020 season, it was very satisfying to be able to get back to some kind of normality.  The weather was perfect for spectating as was the rerouted course, but for some, who haven’t raced for a while, the warm conditions and course proved challenging.  Whilst the hill after the start was removed the course made up for it with an extra couple of loops taking us through a meandering, roller coaster of a course.  Overall our numbers were down in men’s and women’s but we made an impressive start to the season with a second place in the Premier Men, first in women U20 and first in the U14 women.
