Winter Distance Running Pointscore
Athletics Wollongong conducts a winter pointscore based on local parkruns. This is to encourage our club members to keep active during the winter months without the need for a separate winter program. To register with parkrun, go to parkrun.com.au.
To promote the social ‘catch up’ feel, there will be a preferred parkrun on the first Saturday of each month.
The first will be on 4th May at Sandon Point.
The pointscore will be held between 1st May until 31st August, and runners must be financial or life members of Athletics Wollongong.
Further information can be found at Winter parkrun pointscore information.
