Athletes can access their results online through Results HQ on the home page. Members will need their login details to access results.
At CMLAC children are encouraged to compete for Fun, Fitness and to achieve their own Personal Bests.
Medals are given to individual placegetters as well as teams (of three) placegetters on Open Days. It’s a great opportunity for the children to be recognized for their efforts. At CMLAC we encourage children to form teams of 3 at these events.
CMLAC uniform is club singlet and red shorts. Athletes must compete in the club uniform. Singlets and shorts can be purchased from us at training or at events (cash sales only).
