The VRTA Meeting is just 3 weeks away and the new VAL website and registration is only day's away from being launched. We've got some great events on the program including the usual events;


  • *70m Under 17 | $6 Entry Fee | 14m Limit | $300 Prizepool
  • 70m Open | $11 Entry Fee | 14m Limit | $500 Prizepool
  • City of Whittlesea 200m Open Gift | $25 Entry Fee | 30m Limit | $2500 Prizepool
  • 200m Women’s | $15 Entry Fee | 30m Limit | $900 Prizepool
  • 300m Veteran’s | $11 Entry Fee | 90m Limit | $300 Prizepool
  • 400m SportzBiz Novice Series | $6 Entry Fee | 120m Limit | $300 Prizepool
  • 550m Open | $11 Entry Fee | 138m Limit | $500 Prizepool
  • *800m Under 20 | $6 Entry Fee | 240m Limit | $300 Prizepool
  • 1600m Women’s Veteran’s | $11 Entry Fee | 400m Limit | $500 Prizepool
  • #3200m Open | $11 Entry Fee | 600m Limit | $500 Prizepool

    The stable relay will also be on again, with the format the same as last year, 100-100-200-400m legs and every team must have 1 female runner. So start thinking about your teams. Registration for this will be payable on the day at $20 per team ($5 per person in the team). Winning team take's all!
    *New event
    #Please note the new limit on the 3200m being 600m, this is to enable greater inclusion, so we hope to see a well supported race.


If anyone is thinking of coming from interstate to compete, Meadowglen International Athletic Stadium is located on McDonalds Road, Epping. It's about 25 minutes drive from the Tullamarine Airport or a $45 cab fare. Check out www.virginaustralia.com, www.jetstar.com, www.tigerair.com or www.qantas.com.au for flight details. I'm sure there are still some deals around that will make it worth the trip.

It's a fantastic opener to the VAL Season, plenty of opportunity to be seen by the handicapper, have plenty of racing on the day and catch up with old friends.

If you aren't heading to Whyalla (SAAL), or want something between Macksville & Queanbeyan (NSWAL), then pencil this into your diary. The VAL website will be ready in a matter of days for registration and entry. Entries will close 1 week before the event (Friday 8th November).

So keep an eye on The Victorian Athletic League website

So be sure to plan your entries, there are lots of opportunities to compete. We look forward to officially kicking off the VAL season and hope to see as many of you there as possible. The timetable will be posted once entries are confirmed.

Thanks for that Shane. Could the VRTA also suggest to the VAL that it would be helpful for clubs to have provisional timetables up prior to entries closing.
I know entry numbers can impact on timetabling but an indicative program would be very helpful when runners complete their entries, particularly for women and vet runners who have more event choice.

That's quite a good point, I will table it at the next VAL Board meeting. We will try to work closer with the clubs to do so. Thanks for the suggestion.

Great work Shane. Promotions and updates like this gets people enthusiastic and excited about what's coming up.
Next week a list of entries, the number of heats and program will continue the momentum.

Are entries still closing on the 8th?

I will be asking the VAL to hold them open for as long as possible. But people should be aware it's on and entries open shortly.
I have been assured by the developer of the VAL site that it will be ready today for registration and entry.

Keep an eye on it throughout the day.

Attention All VAL Runners & Trainers re Meadowglen Gift

The VAL website will be launched very soon. The final pieces of data are being loaded. Keep en aye out for an email from the VAL with instructions on how to log on to the new site and update your details, pay your registration and enter your races.

Entries will be held open as long as we can. the final cut off date is still being negotiated with the VAL Office, but it looks like they will be held open for longer.

Thank you to everyone for your patience, I appreciate that is has been frustrating, but please bear with me for just a few more hours.

Keep an eye out for the new website, keep checking and refreshing your browser. You might need to clear your browser cache in the event that the old details are held in memory. Please do a Google Search on how to do this for your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari etc...)

Any update on the VAL rego and entry system?

I am extremely frustrated about this. The developer said it would be ready. There were a few little buggy things, but I was of the impression it was worked out.

I will provide an update tomorrow morning, but at this stage, entries will open for longer. I have made it clear that due to the website delays, entries and registration delays, we are keeping the entries open as long as possible. Luckily, most of the start marks are ready, it's just the new athletes (novice and junior) that need to be worked out.

The testing we did last night was, on the most part, successful, just some back end things the developer had to correct, but we are really close. Yes this should have happened months ago, but we just can't speculate, we have to deal with the here and now.

I thank everyone for their patience and understanding. We will get it up very soon, in one way or another!

With a change in Name Server, it can take a day or so to refresh. Try to flush your DNS (Start-->Run-->cmd--> then type ipconfig /flushdns

try it again. If that doesn't work, then tomorrow should see it updated.
