Athletics SA is bringing Street Athletics to the heart of the popular seaside town of Victor Harbor! In 2016, Athletics SA conducted a pole vault competition on a portable runway in Warland Reserve, Victor Harbor, as part of the Fleurieu Festival of Sport. The success of this event has prompted Athletics SA to expand its Street Athletics concept to the roads with the addition of a series of mile races and quarter miles (400m) which are open to Athletics SA members and the general public. The pole vault will be conducted on the roadway in Albert Place in front of the vibrant café strip, whilst the mile and quarter mile races will take place on the roads of the Esplanade and Flinders Parade. There will also be opportunities to come and learn pole vault and some come ‘n’ try athletics activities on Warland Reserve. There will be a great atmosphere with music and event commentary. In 2017, Rio Olympic Games representative, Kurtis Marschall, who has a personal best of 5.70m has confirmed his intention to compete in the pole vault competition!
Sunday 9th April 2017
11am to 2pm
Warland Reserve, Victor Harbor
Note that the elite fields for the mile and quarter mile will be selected from all entries once entries have closed.
Entries will close at 9am Monday 3rd April 2017
We are working on making some prize money available for the pole vault competition and elite events. The available prize money will be confirmed shortly.
Due to time restrictions for road closures and the width of the road, there will be a cap on the number of entrants in each race. Entrants will be asked to provide a time during the registration process. This time will be used to complete a selection once entries are closed. We anticipate that we will be able to accommodate all those wanting to participate as we have some flexibility in age categories, so we encourage everyone to enter or to contact our Events Manager, Jon via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 83543477 if you have any questions. In the event that we are unable to confirm your entry, a full refund will be provided.
