CHAMPIONSHIP action is at Friday night's Flack Advisory Bendigo Region track and field meet when the 4 x 1500m relay titles are up for grabs.
Bendigo Harriers, Bendigo University, Eaglehawk, and South Bendigo will aim to field relay teams across a wide range of age groups in the men's and women's events.
Number one team at the Victoria Country titles for the third consecutive year, Eaglehawk was in hot form at last Saturday's running of the 4 x 200m relays.
A record-breaking run by the Hawks included the women's 40-plus team of Kathryn Heagney, Sandra Kadri, Leah Langtree and Shavaun Roberts as they clocked a time of 2:17.62.
The line-up in the Two Blues beat the Centre record of 2:23.42 held by South Bendigo's Jackie Guillou, Andrea Woods, Trudy Haines and Carol Coad since December 9, 2017.
Some of the best battles in the 4 x 1500m relay are likely to be in the under-18 and under-16 girls, 40-plus and 50-plus divisions for men and women.
The night's track action starts at 6pm with sprint hurdles and will be followed by the 1500m or 3000m walk, 100m dash, 4 x 100m relay, 3000m or 5000m, and 400m. Field events are shot put, javelin, long jump, pole vault.
Meanwhile, the in-form Billy Meade added to this season's winning run in the latest 3000m heat of the Adam Parker Electrical-backed Tuesday Night Series at LUBAC.
A tightly-packed group of five led until the final lap when Meade charged clear to win in 10:32 ahead of University's Andrew Creer, 10:48; Bendigo Harriers' Taine Lang, 10:49; invitation athlete Jake Rusbridge, 10:51; and Harriers' Peter Cowell, 10:54. Fastest female was Anne Buckley, 12:26, from Bendigo Harriers.
