Congratulations and thank you to all Woden Thunder athletes who competed in the ACT Club Relays conducted at the AIS on the 1st of December. We had an amazing 45 athletes compete in 28 relay teams and numerous field events.

Our athletes put in an awesome effort, maintaining our tradition as a strong relay Club, and featuring in the placings in a number of relays, ranging from the 2 x 100m to the Distance Medley relay. A special thank you to those athletes who stepped up on the day to fill in for teams that were short – your support to the Club and your fellow team members was appreciated.
