State Challenge

8 March @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

$11.20 – $38.60


Finish of the season by cracking those PB’s in what is one of the most “feel good” Competitions on the Little Athletics SA calendar. The State Challenge. Athletes in the Under 8 to Under 13 age groups can compete in most of the standard individual events available to their group, with athletes able to select a maximum of 5.

The State Challenge is an exciting opportunity for athletes who have not quite qualified for the SIC’s to compete in a Championships styled Competition at the State’s premier athletics facility.

Whilst medals are still awarded to the top three athletes in each age groups events, there are a few differences for this Competition. Track finals will not be being conducted, instead medals will be based on heat times and field events will also only be the best of three attempts with no final 8.

Entries Close: 11:59pm Wednesday 19th February 2020.
