**UPDATE** The Relaython is over for another year, with MLACers running a total of 46.8 km in the 3 hours! Well done to everyone who helped, especially Harry, Mikaeli and Hamish who ran the most. Check out the photos and videos on Facebook.
MLAC are once again participating in the Little Athletics Victoria Relaython. From 9am to 12pm on Saturday February 4th, our athletes, younger siblings and parents are asked to carry a relay baton around the outside lane of our track continuously to help raise funds for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
Last year we ran 109 laps = 43.6 kms. This year we want to run further, so we will allow athletes a choice of distances to run - 100m, 200m or 400m. Those athletes awaiting their next scheduled event can line up at the changeover points (these will be marked by our orange MLAC teardrop banners) waiting for the baton to arrive. The start/finish line will be on the back straight outside The Cottage.
