TEAMS CHALLENGE 2014 'Pinkletics'
This fun new event was added to the calendar in 2012, and is open to U6, U7, U8, U9 and U10 athletes.
The aim is to introduce our younger athletes to competition at the WA Athletics Stadium without too much pressure, by participating in a mixed age team event.
Each team of four will compete in four events plus a shuttle relay throughout the day, in their age groups receiving points for each performance towards their overall team score.
Funds raised go to the McGrath Foundation and we encouraged everyone to wear pink for a good cause.
