ANGLESEA EKIDEN RELAYS WEATHER ALERT
The weather forecast for this Saturday in Anglesea predicts rain and possible thunderstorms throughout Saturday with high winds of up to 40km/h.
If the weather forecast remains the same or worsens, then the Anglesea Ekiden Relays may be cancelled this weekend.
As you will be aware AV were forced to adjust the course routes earlier this week due to parkway closures on safety grounds by Surf Coast Shire and Parks Victoria. Due to the risk factors associated with the terrain and surrounding woodland areas and with the high chance of thunderstorms we will continue to monitor the forecast and remain in contact with the Bureau of Meteorology.
Any decision about this weekend will be made by 4pm Thursday 16th August 2018 and Athletics Victoria will communicate to all members, Clubs, and Officials, by SMS, social media and the AV website.
If the forecast improves but remains a concern either before Saturday or on the day, then the program and distances may be amended and members will be advise of any changes by SMS, social media and the AV website.
The safety of all competitors, officials, volunteers, and spectators is the priority and we will be back in contact by 4pm Thursday 16th August 2018.
