Hi CLAC families,
You will have seen some information coming out about the Relay Carnival. This is an ACT Little Athletics event where Calwell will compete against other ACT Little Athletics Clubs. The carnival is a fun day out and is held at the Woden Athletics track (an all-weather track), which is a great experience.

Where: Woden Park Athletics Centre, Ainsworth St, Phillip ACT 2606

Registration: Registration is via Little Athletics ACT (Note: each athlete in the family
must be registered individually). *No registrations are accepted on the day
Teams: Your age managers will be able to assist with forming the teams. Everyone
of all abilities is welcome to compete, and every athlete helps.

Event Format: There are separate start times for different age groups.

Slalom Relay – this is a relay where each runner weaves in and out of poles and will
be conducted on the grass section in the middle of the athletics track. Each runner
runs 100m in total.

Swedish Relay – this is a four-leg relay where each athlete runs a different distance.
It’s a great race for the spectators.
