We have separated the womens and masters race and programmed a 300m masters and a 300m women's event. Through a very generous sponsorship from Saputo the 300m Masters event 'The Jayne McMeel' prizemoney has been increased from $700 to $1200.
We have decided to change our distance events to 800 and 1600metres. This has been necessary through to poor entries over the past few years.
We will also have a distance bonus competition. There will be more information closer to the event.
While our Mens Gift prizemoney $2500 is in the about average area we feel that the Womens prizemoney also $2500 is above average. We need support from our sprinting females for this event to prosper.
Lastly but maybe most important to many is that the VAL has allocated 2 AP's ticks in each event to all athletes that compete at Warrnambool. This should be a great incentive to help your mark early in the season.
