  • Annual Turkey Fun Run Results!
    SCT's annual Xmas Turkey Run was held on Sunday, 13 December, at Fadden Pines. The event was a great success with all participants (and helpers) enjoying a lovely sunny morning. The winner of 'the bird' (a frozen turkey from Erindale Meats) was Scott Marshall, selected at random by our trusty computer. Course designer Jim White won the event, with an estimated time less than one second away from his actual time! All participants ran or walked without the aid of watches, GPS devises or phones.

    The course distance was 4.52 kilometres (2 laps), with some people completing 1 lap and having their time doubled for the calculation of results. Winners of the 3 major Runners Shop gift vouchers were: Rohan Hosking ($150), Jenny Hefford ($100) and Janette Yeung ($50). A selection of photos are available on SCT's Facebook Page. Thanks all for participating and we hope to see you (and your friends) around the same time next year.

  • SCT Athletics News - incl scholarship opportunities:
    We have had a great start to the summer track season, with SCT athletes very visible at every meet so far. We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of the athletes who have joined our club this season. We hope you enjoy your time with us and set many personal bests.

    We have still had a few issues with the new membership system and there are some people who have joined SCT that are not showing up in our membership list. If you are showing up with SCT for your results at the track, please let me know so we can sort it out.

    A very big congratulations and good luck to all the SCT athletes selected for the All Schools Championships in Melbourne. We have had at least 13 athletes selected (noting membership issues mean I may have missed one or two). Congratulations to Grace Unwin, Brandon Bardsley, Jacob Church, Colby Eddowes, Tim Fraser, Conner Frew, Rohan Hosking, Balthazar Lai, Hugh McKenzie, Adrian Plummer, Keiran Reilly, Jack Wallis, and Gwyllym Young.

    Our major sponsor, the Vikings groups, offers annual scholarships for college and university students who are promising athletes in affiliated clubs. We have had athletes on scholarship with the Vikings every year recently. If you are going into college or uni, I have attached the details and application forms. They need to be submitted by Monday 7 December and we will write a supporting letter to go with your application. For more details, send us an email or get in touch with Peter Hosking - peter.hoskings [AT] or 0402 096 664.

    Finally, some club information for those who may not have heard it before. We have club records that can be found on our website (female and male) - If you want to claim a record, send us an email with the details or fill out the linked form.

    Also, we offer financial assistance to members to travel to national and international competitions. For more information, please read the long standing policy on our website here:

    Hope to see you all at the track soon.



  • Fadden Pines Handicap Final a great success!
    The final event of the 2015 Fadden Pines Schools' Cross Country Season was held on Sunday 23 August. All four races were run using handicap starts and judging by the results, the 'Tortoise and the Hare' effect produced Personal Best times for many runners. There was one course record broken, by Kiefer Brennan, with a time of 7:51.0 for the boys' 2000 metres.

    All runners, parents and helpers enjoyed the day. SCT would like to thank Mike, Ryan, Jane, Trish (especially for the BBQ on the day!), Jim (especially for the freshly painted posts marking the course) and any other people who helped out during the season. Schools' Team Results will be coming soon. We're looking forward to seeing you all (and new friends!) next May for the 2016 season.

  • Fadden Pines Results:
    Results for the 2015 Fadden Pines Schools' Cross Country season are available here. If you've broken a course record, let Mike or Ryan know so the records page can be updated. Please note that on 17 May, Fadden Pines is being replaced for the day by the ACT Athletics Winter Series - same venue but commencing at 2PM.

  • How to join SCT Athletics Club:
    To join SCT you will need to complete an online membership of ACT Athletics and choose "South Canberra Tuggeranong" as your club when filling out the form. It's as simple as that! If you don't have a credit card, contact Mike or Geoff at the AIS track over summer.

  • Coaches Association Fees:
    The SCT committee has approved payment of Australian T & F Coaches Association annual fees for coaches connected with SCT who are actively coaching SCT athletes. Contact Mike Sexton for further details.

  • SCT Tracksuits available!
    We now have a good supply of club tracksuits. They are available from Mike Sexton or Jim White. The price is $100 for the full tracksuit or $60 for the top and $40 for the pants.
