Late on Thursday 15 July, the State Government announced that Victoria will go into a five day lockdown as of 11:59pm tonight.

This means that, among all other restrictions, all community Athletics activities in Victoria must be suspended until the State Government advises otherwise.

Therefore, this weekend’s selection trials (17-18 July) for the Australian Cross Country Championships and Victorian All Schools Cross Country Championships will be postponed.

Athletics Victoria made a statement regarding the lockdown on its website, that statement is available here.

Stay tuned, we will keep you posted.

While there are restrictions concerning your movement during the lockdown, keep in close contact with your friends and family.  Give them a phone call, send them a text, send them an email.  Stay in touch.
