Sandringham Gift is back on track

By Marty Shevelove
The Leader
September 22, 2016

THE Sandringham Gift is back on the athletics calendar and three-time Paralympian and world champion Don Elgin is doing all he can to see that it stays there.

The Sandringham Gift was first staged in the spring of 2014 but organisers were unable to get it off the ground last year.

Enter Elgin, who is heading up the Sandringham Gift Committee. He says there will a party-type atmosphere at the Glamis Avenue track and plenty of prize money on offer on Sunday, October 30 when the Gift is held.

“We are working on making it a cracker,” Elgin, 40, said. “We just couldn’t let it stop. It is too important an event for the community.’’

Sandringham is the only gift in Victoria not run on grass and that gives wheelchair athletes a chance to have a go. There will be a 550m race for them with the feature event of the day being the Sandringham Gift over 300m.

The Gift Committee is lining up sponsors and prize money will be allocated according to how many come on board.

“We’re going to have a new structure with a carnival type atmosphere with corporate marquees,’’ Elgin said. “We want to be the biggest Gift outside of Stawell. We’re the first of the season and Stawell is the last.’’

The plan is to have little athletes hit the track in the morning followed by the Gift in the afternoon.

Entries are now open and will close in late October.

Fantastic that Sandringham is staging a great event. If the wheelchair athletes are interested there are other synthetic meets at Warrnambool, Ringwood and Yarra Ranges that I can think of. Maybe a call to organisers might arrange an event.

445 entries for the first VAL meeting at Sandringham.

With 70 in the Womens/Over 35's, there seems enough women entries (28) for a Women's only 300m.

There are 42 Over 35 men entered which is a very good entry in itself, enough for 4 heats.

Womens & Over 35's races were first introduced many years ago because there were often insufficient entries for a women's only event & it cost clubs money to split them. But with the massive growth in women's numbers, they've probably earned the right to have their own event.

I know the girls much prefer to compete in a women's only event.
