The CGA Athletics Club participates in the Associated Public Schools Old Collegians Amateur Athletic Association Inc. (APSOC), which conducts Cross-Country and Road Races in and around Melbourne during the winter season (April to September). Distances range from relay laps of the Tan all the way up to half marathons around the scenic Westerfolds Park. Involvement in the Club is a great way to stay fit, whilst maintaining your connection with the Caulfield Grammarians.
The Club caters to runners of all ages and abilities. Whether your interest in running is recreational or more competitive, there is a place for you in our Club. We have a wide-ranging and diverse membership, made up of graduates from over 30 years ago, CGA Committee Members and even current CGS students. Please encourage friends and family who enjoy running to join, they don’t have to be past students!
In the short time since its foundation, the CGA Athletics Club has seen female and male Grammarians from across the years, competing together, supporting each other and celebrating collective and individual success, at regular APSOC events. We also hosts and takes part in a range of social events and celebrations, throughout the season.
Registrations for the 2021 Season are now open. Go to https://registration.apsoc.net.au/Welcome.aspx
You need to register to run. The first race is Saturday 10th April at Scotch College 2.30pm. You can find the full list of 2021 APSOC dates here.
CGA Athletics will also be managing their first event this year on April 17th which will be held at the CGS Wheelers Hill campus and incorporating the school grounds and Jells Park.
They need help with marshals to direct runners around the course. If you or any friends or family could help on the day it would be greatly appreciated.
Club members and supporters are also encouraged to connect through the Athletics Club Facebook Group.
