1 Gippsland Gift Video on Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:09 am


Gippsland Gift Promotional Video

AND from the promoters -

Following on from the successful Woodside Gift in 2010, the event will be renamed, The Gippsland Gift, and will take place in the City of Latrobe, with the Traralgon Recreation Reserve, becoming the new home of Gippsland's number one sporting event.

With a new name, new location and even more prizemoney, The Gippsland Gift looks set to be one of the premier Athletic Gifts on the Australian Racing Calendar.

Our vision is to make the Gippsland Gift, the richest footrace in the Southern Hemisphere which in turn will lead to great publicity, huge crowds and attendance of some of the World's best athletes.

The event will feature up to 14 professional athletics races, run over two days, including the prized 120 metre Gift for both Men and Women. Our athletes are predominantly aged between 18-34 and features over 900 registered athletes.

Traralgon is located in the heart of the Latrobe Valley, Gippsland- approximately 2 hours from Melbourne. Traralgon has been chosen for its great infrastructure, superb facilities and location to neighbouring towns Sale, Morwell and Bairnsdale.

We have a strong connection to the rural community and families of Gippsland. The Gippsland Gift is embraced and supported by the community as an outdoor family friendly event that promotes the region to the broader Victorian market and provides economic stimulus to the community.

The Woodside Gift was ranked number three in the State in terms of Prizemoney on offer and 2012 looks like being even bigger and better.

The Victorian Runners & Trainers Association recently awarded the Woodside Gift the 'Meeting of the Year 2010-2011'.

At the VAL AGM, someone should ask the Gippsland rep where the money is coming from. not knocking the concept, just concerned they might be getting too ambitious.

Here's a tip for anyone who knows the mob from down Gippsland way, they ain't gonna get a two day meet. The proposed weekend is reserved for Noble Park and they ain't moving Exclamation

offer on

If the Gippsland promoters go to the VAL with an offer of a 5 year deal for a 50k meet over the last weekend in Feb, the VAL would be crazy not to consider it. Noble Park would have to move or go altogether. Razz

Got to be careful, Gippsland don't make an offer too good to be true and the VAL falls for it. Can't lose Noble Park, a ten year meet, on the whim of a "too good to be true" offer.
