2020 ACT Track & Field Championships

This year the ACT  Track & Field Championships were held during the Australia Day long weekend from 24 January to 27 January 2020. Over 800 local, interstate and international athletes converged on the AIS for 4 days of fabulous weather and strong competition.

Woden athletes were looking forward to these Championships and to testing themselves against some of the best…and they didn’t disappoint!

Our athletes picked up 65 medals in total, as well as many top 6 placings. The final medal count was 30 GOLD, 19 SILVER and 16 BRONZE – a fantastic effort!

CONGRATULATIONS to every Woden competitor. You showed great sportsmanship, courage and the desire to give it your best. WELL DONE!

2018 ACT Track & Field Championships

A record number of entries made for three days of exciting competition during the Australia Day long weekend for the 2018 ACT Track & Field Championships.

Warm temperatures and light winds greeted over 750 athletes from around Australia and overseas. Many of these athletes were chasing a qualifying time or distance for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Australian Athletics Championships or the Australian Junior Championships.

And the weekend did not disappoint with five “A” and twenty-nine “B” qualifying performances being achieved for the Commonwealth Games and many more performances meeting the entry standards for national Championships.

Woden athletes stood tall in the face of fierce competition, winning a whopping 72 medals over the three days! Of these, 39 were GOLD with 19 SILVER and 14 BRONZE medals.

What an incredible effort! CONGRATULATIONS to all of our athletes.
