The Athletics Victoria Shield is the official summer competition commencing in October.
Keilor St Bernard’s competes in Yellow zone at rotating venues including Aberfeldie, Newport, Lakeside, Werribee or Doncaster. Each meet features a variety of athletics events. Across the season there is scope for athletes to compete in their chosen discipline. Many athletes compete in other events if their main event is not scheduled on a particular day.
The summer season concludes in March with the Shield final. Keilor St Bernard’s usually has several teams lining up for premiership glory at Lakeside Stadium, the official home of Victorian athletics.
We also conduct a number of club events each summer.
The Keilor St Bernard’s annual Handicap Gift is the club’s blue ribbon event, conducted in March. The Gift is open to all members, who are given a handicap based on their summer season times. Sashes are awarded for winners of races over:
- 110 metres men and women
- 1600 metres men
- 800 metres women
