AV numbers on the rise

Athletics Victoria is excited to report that memberships are up 320 competing members on this time last year. Along with the strong up take on memberships, Australia’s premier winter series XCR’15 has attracted record breaking numbers to its opening two rounds of cross country racing at Jells and Lardner Park.

The total number of members is 3079 with 2070 competing members. Glenhuntly leads the 100+ club with 137 registered members; with Collingwood (116), Diamond Valley (103) and Box Hill (101) also recording strong numbers early in the season. Athletics Essendon (99) and Western Athletics (95) are knocking on the door of the 100 club.

Athletics Victoria is slowly growing its Recreational Running numbers with nine registered members through the Victorian Running Network and associated running groups.

Another 2460 members are needed to meet last years total.
