Dear athletes, coaches, and supporters,

The Victorian State Government today announced a 5 day lockdown across the entire state, starting tonight from 11:59pm 12 February.

The impacts of the lockdown will unfortunately result in the Ballarat Gift meeting being cancelled this weekend.

We feel for all those competing and travelling to the event this weekend. We especially feel for, and thank, the Ballarat Athletic Club for their incredible work in generating what was going to be an amazing event. 

The VAL will work with the club to determine if the event can be held at a date later this season. Once this is confirmed, the VAL will provide information about refunds or transfer of entry fees.

More information on the Stage 4 lockdown restrictions can be found on the coronavirus website.
