Start of 2018 season now 3 Feb

Hi everyone, please note that the start of the 2018 Redbacks season is now SATURDAY 3rd February at 09.00.  The original planned return date of Saturday the 27th January has been cancelled.

This decision takes into account the Australia day weekend where we have been advised that many families are away especially as schools only go back on the 5th Feb. We hope that moving the start date back a week doesn’t disappoint too many Redbacks.

Look forward to seeing you all on the 5th Feb at 08.45am for a 09.00 start.



Hi everyone.  Welcome to the new Redbacks season. A very big hello to all. We look forward to more running, jumping and throwing things every Saturday. Please come and join us.

If you need further information please contact us and we will get back to you.


What a great start to the second half of the 2016/2017 season. Some wonderful performances have been registered by all age groups and a club record too for Zoe (U8Girls).

Today also saw a veteran athlete run the 400m with the U14-17’s. Under 11’s age Manager, Geoff Davidson, take on a combined field of runners and showed that, despite a few years on the side lines, his skill as a mid distance athlete is still impressive. Well done Geoff!

Earlybird Registrations for 2016

All athletes who register and pay for their registration BEFORE 31st August 2016 will be entered into a draw to have the total cost of their registration reimbursed by Little Athletics ACT. Five athletes will be chosen at random from across the ACT to receive their full fees reimbursed.

You can register in person or once you’ve registered on line, pop down to pick up your registration pack on the 10 September at Chapman Oval from 9am to 11am. Registration and payment online beforehand means your registration pack will be ready to collect on the day.
