The Bendigo Bats athletics team have made a flying start to Athletics Victoria’s XCR ’21 series in Saturday’s cross-country action at Jells Park. A group of 36 represented Flack Advisory Services Group-backed Athletics Bendigo. Bendigo was victorious in the men’s open division two and also raced to second place in the overall standings with what is considered the region's strongest men's open relay team for a long time.
The "big guns" of Flack Advisory-backed Bendigo Region Athletics distance running are in the A-grade field for tonight's 5KM Frenzy at the Bendigo Athletics Track. Here organiser of 5K Frenzy, Brett Gilligan, shares his preview of the event, which is well supported by athletes from Bendigo and across regional Victoria.
