Interclub Ribbon Days are held at different clubs throughout the summer and are a great family fun event. You can take along a picnic and enjoy a full programme of athletics while socialising and getting to know other athletes and families. Te Awamutu club usually has a gazebo to gather under.
Ribbon Days are held on Saturdays from 10am till about 3pm. All children registered with a club are eligible to compete (although only some clubs cater for under 5s) and there is no entry fee and no pre-registration, just rock up on the day. Ribbons are handed out for 1st, 2nd, 3rd placings. Athletes must be in correct Club uniform to compete.
Our own Amber (6yrs) and Marshall (4yrs) will be competing as well!
Amber receiving 4th place in her first club night race this year.
Marshall competing at club night over jumps (last year).
If you would like to know more please ask a committee member or check on the notice board for upcoming ribbon days.
