If you ever feel like reliving your youth or just have that competitive urge burning inside of you, Nepean District Athletics Club will be hosting a Masters Gala Day next weekend for people over 30.
To be held at Blair Oval in St Marys on Sunday, December 16 at 8am, the Gala Day will be a chance for locals to meet other Masters athletes and try new events in a non-competitive environment.
It’s hoped the Gala Day, which is strictly for people 30 and above, will help attract new competitors to the sport.
“A lot of people don’t realise Masters athletics exists, so we thought we’d put on a Gala Day to get people together and encourage them to take up the sport,” long time club member, Bianca Keehn said.
“We have two sprints planned as well as some middle distance events, jumps, throws and a race walk.
“We’ll also have some Masters members on hand to provide some information.”
