Club News

Saturday 12 August is our annual AGM and summer presentations, please make the time to stay after the race to come together as a club and share afternoon tea.  If you are interested in joining the committee please feel free to speak to myself or another committee member.

Athletics Australia have confirmed the date for the 50km Championships this year for the 3 December in Melbourne, for more information on the event and the judging seminar to be held the day before by Race Walk Australia follow this link:

Don’t forget to check out our facebook page for regular updates, results and pics of each weeks events.

If you are interested being a volunteering with the Heart Foundation in a walking project they have going with Floriade, please read the information below:


For few years the Heart Foundation team has been taking a group of people for a 45 minute walk though Floriade before the gates open to the general public. It is a great way to get some light exercise in the morning whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery, all free of charge. We have been lucky enough to be able to continue this project in 2017. 


We are looking for some volunteers to help us guide the walks. We decided that the best place to start looking are already walking members of the community. Training will be provided for all guide walkers towards the end of August, dates will be released once volunteer recruitment is finalized.


You would be a perfect match for this program if you:
– Enjoy Walking
-Love Floriade
-Don’t mind a little bit of public speaking
-Are looking to meet some likeminded walkers
-Are organised and can take a charge of small groups of people


The event information is just below, if you are free for any of those dates and think you would be a perfect match we would love to hear from you!


2017 Floriade Morning Walk
 16th September to 15th of October 2017
Times: 10am to 7pm (7 days a week)
Morning walks:
 Commence at 8am and run for 45 minutes

Please get in contact with me on or calling on (02) 6269 2655 on Tuesdays. We will aim to respond to all emails as soon as possible.
