  • Athletics ACT 2008 Ex-Stadia Championship Events:
    ACT Athletics is conducting six 'Ex-Stadia Championship' events during the winter season. You must be a registered member of an athletics club (which includes SCT) to be eligible for awards. Athletes must wear their Club uniform and registration numbers. For those events where athletes are issued with race numbers (ACT Mountain Running Championships, Canberra Marathon, and Canberra Half Marathon) the race numbers must be worn instead of the AACT registration numbers. Medals will only be presented to the first three eligible placegetters. These Championship events are the primary selection events for the AACT Ex-Stadia Selection Committee to select athletes to represent ACT at National Championships:

    1. ACT Mountain Running Championships: (Seniors) Mt Tennant - 8km senior women, 12km senior men. 17 February 2008.

  • The TVRUASC Awards Night:
    This Awards Night is the premier event of the year for Tuggeranong Valley sportspeople. It was held on Thursday 21 February. The SCT table was close to the stage, and all in attendance enjoyed the evening, which included a 2-course meal and free drinks. SCT's Liam Dwyer was nominated in the Outstanding Individual Junior category for his performances in the 2007 Australian All-Schools Championships and for his ACT Resident U14 800 metre record of 4.17.45. In the All-Schools, Liam won the gold in the U15 1500m in 4:15.49 and placed 4th in the U15 800m in 1:59.87. The winner of the category was BMX rider Caroline Buchanan.

  • Southgate breaks ACT Record:
    Kathy Southgate has broken the ACT W50 Record for the 10,000 metres. Running in the ACT Veterans meeting on Thursday 21 February, Kathy ran a time of 38:19.86, breaking her own W50 record by 40 seconds. She was just 3 seconds shy of her ACT W45 record (38:23.0) and 52 seconds off the Australian W50 record! Kathy finished second female in the race, behind former World Triathlon Champion and Commonwealth Games rep Jackie Fairweather who ran 36:38.41.
    Running in the same race, were SCT athletes Colin Heywood and Jim White. Colin was first in the M50s with 39:01.44 and Jim placed 3rd in the M55s in 44:07.91, behind ACT legends Trevor Jacobs and Geoff Moore. Colin Heywood also won the ACT Veterans 10,000 metre Walk Championship on 14 February, clocking an impressive 51:51 for the 25-lap race.

  • The 2008 SCT Golden Mile:
    This year's Golden Mile series of road races were held at the Stromlo Forest Park facility on Friday, 15 February, 2008. A one mile course was measured on the 1200m Criterium circuit. An out/back section of 409 metres on the main straight was run before a full 1200m lap of the circuit to complete the 1609.34 metres of 'the mile'. Entries were disappointing, however all had fun, and we hope to continue with the event using this venue in 2009. There were no female runners, so the 'Champion Female' sash goes begging for 2008.
    Race 1 (scratch): 1 Geoff Monro 6:14, 2 Jim White 6:28, 3 Ewen Thompson 6:48, 4 Richard Hilhorst 7:04, Charlie Modrak 7:20, Tony Booth 7:38, Colin Robbie 7:57.
    Race 2 (handicap): 1 Geoff Monro 5:33, 2 Richard Hilhorst 6:35, 3 Tony Booth 7:11, 4 Charlie Modrak 7:04, 5 Jim White 6:15, 6 Ewen Thompson 6:52.
