The Cross Country season is now well underway and many of you will be having your district trials. Good luck. Queensland Athletics are holding their club relays on Saturday 14th May. If you are interested in competing in a team let me know and I will be in contact with you soon to let you know if I have found a team for you to run in. The club pays for the relay entry fees. This is an event where it is good to see our athletes helping others have a run, by sometimes running up an age group or the girls running in the boy's team if needed. Please emailadmin@thompsonestateathletics.

The sun shone and it was a lovely morning. Photos of this event are on our website. Several of our runners competed over the weekend. Congratulations to Jason Collie who came first in both the 1500m and 3000m and 3rd in the 800m. Well done also to Graeme Rowley who came 6th in the finals of the 200m and 100m.
