The feature Athletics Victoria event for Gippsland Athletics club members (unless you are heading for State or National comps) is the Victorian Country championships. This is a very friendly event, but a good chance to test yourselves against some stronger competitors. There are no qualifying standards for entry, so we strongly encourage you to consider joining in.

Next year's event will be held in Geelong at the John Landy Athletics Track, Friday 22nd January to Sunday 24th January, 2016. More details and online entries at AV website here
