The weather for Wangaratta this Saturday is currently forecast to exceed our weather policy, with temperatures predicted to reach 39-40 degrees.

We understand people have travel and accommodation plans to consider, we also have to ensure the safety for all attendees including athletes, officials, club members and spectators. As a result, the timetable of events has been updated and will start at 5:30pm providing the temperature is at an acceptable level. The updated timetable can be found here.

If the forecast for Saturday continues to increase into the 40’s, we will consider postponing the event and communicate this decision on Thursday 21 January.

We realise the new timetable may not suit everyone, but ask for your understanding as we do our utmost to conduct the 100th edition of the Wangaratta Gift as safely and successfully as possible.
