2022 RACE ENTRIES UPDATE

 
 

THE NEWS YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
FINAL RACE ENTRIES NOW OPEN

 

 

 

A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE OFFICER

The VAL Board has been working around the clock to keep a large number of races on the VAL calendar this season - namely the Docklands Gift, Geelong Gift and now the Bendigo Gift. An enormous amount of work has been happening in the background, by a fantastic group of volunteers that have gone above and beyond for our sport, and especially for our athletes.

A huge thank you to all of the athletes and families, that supported the 2022 Docklands Gift at short notice. We had over 400 entries come through in just one week, the support received was greatly appreciated and proved loud and clear that we all just want to race! We look forward to the Docklands Gift being back even bigger and better in the 22/23 season.

That being said, we're calling on your support once again - the Bendigo Gift has finally got the go ahead and we're asking all athletes to speak with their feet and get entering! The VAL are extremely grateful to have received support from the City of Greater Bendigo and would really appreciate seeing as many athletes as possible in attendance on Saturday 12th of March - it's going to be a fantastic event under lights, on Bendigo's recently refurbished track. 

The full race list, prizemoney, entries and lucrative Bendigo bonuses, are now available on the VAL website - given the short turn around in entries opening and the event date, entries will only be open until midnight next Friday (4th March) so jump on right now and get your entries in!

ENTER NOW

Congratulations to all athletes that have donned a sash this season and best of luck to those still chasing one!

Best regards,
Taylah Perry
VAL - Executive Officer

Athletes are expected to bring their own or purchase the relevant colour singlets for their race.

VAL race colour singlets, will only be lent to athletes where numbers/stripes are required and for finals.

Regular athletes are still requesting to borrow singlets, please be reminded of the above - we are still actively trying to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading at our events and the sharing of singlets is our highest risk.

All colour singlets are back in stock and are available to purchase by cash or card, at the colour tent. 

They're available for $10 each or 3 for $25 (your choice of colours).

Please be reminded:
- If you're lent a VAL race singlet, you need to return it after your race.
- Athletes are required to check in for all races - heats, semis and finals.
