Track availability for mid-week training

Please note that the Knox Athletics Seniors Club have the track booked for training between 5–7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Seniors have been very accommodating and shared the track with Little Aths during these times.

Now, with increased activity at the track, we ask that parents and unregistered children do not use the track between 5-7pm on Thursdays.

Also, junior athletes are asked to use the four outside lanes while the seniors use the inside lanes. Good track etiquette is to allow faster runners to use the inside lanes, while slower runners move to the outside.

Please continue to be friendly to others on the track at all times.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Steve Lillie
President – Knox Little Athletics Centre
