Winter Season is back!
Great day for round 1 of the Athletics Victoria #XCR season - 6x6km XC relay
Proud of my Box Hill Premier Men’s team to finish 2nd behind a terrific St.Stephen’s AC team and just ahead of a strong Western Athletics team
Cross country is back. Although not quite, where’s the mud and the rain?

What a beautiful day to kick off the cross country season at Jell’s Park. You wouldn’t think winter is coming......

We hope you’re enjoying the games wherever you are. A huge well done to all the athletes, organisers and volunteers. Go Aussies! 💚💛

Damn, I’m not gonna type my life story about how I’ve always dreamt of wearing the green and gold, instead ima save it for after, when it really counts. But I’d like to inform y’all that despite the countless hamstrings, I’ve finally made my first international team and am proud to say I’m representing Australia in the U20 world junior championships in Finland 🇫🇮 this July but it’s all thanks to a man who continues to play a roll as a father, mentor, coach and a comedian Mr “Steve Gaffney”, my family friends and ofc my support personnel for all that they’ve devoted to my (our) success! #greatful#myphysio#boymeetsworld#germany#finland#bound#athsvic#australia
Another great event was on today, the Big V Trail Series Field Of Dreams / Victorian 10 Mile Cross Country Championships at Lysterfield Lake!
Steve, Harry and Tony made the most of this great event of which Dinneen Runners are the proud coaching partners.
Well done guys!! We’re looking forward to the next event at Westerfolds Park on April 14!
Well done Jonathan and Bob, taking out a 1, 2 finish at Marriott Waters parkrun! Bob scoring #1 token on his first ever parkrun! 👏👏👏 We love a @DinneenRunners@parkrunAU session on a Saturday! A great way to connect with the running community 😀😀😀
Whilst we couldn’t quite repeat our epic 18s PB from states it’s been a valuable season of learning for @haz.bowen. Super highs and challenging lows but never once did he give up - 10th in the U15 3000m (2nd) Vic is pretty neat! #skaac#pencil#athsvic

This Saturday’s session was @PARKRUN!! 👍
The great thing about parkrun is that no matter where you’re spending your long weekend, there’s sure to be one nearby. Great effort by Jessica, Laura and Georgia getting out to Westerfolds 😀👏😀
That’s a wrap for the 2017/18 season, had its ups and downs, but finished off the season with big PBs in 10 events and stayed relatively in one piece 💪🏼 huge thanks to @tmarsh_utfc for coaching me and helping me get the results I did 🙌🏼. Keen for winter training, and I’ll see you all again next season 😈👊🏼 #trackandfield#multievents#nike#athlete#athsvic#UTFC@utfc_

8 months since the Olympics is way to long and 2 stress reactions are not fun 💔 but after my first 10km walk in training last Friday since January 🙈 I'm stoked to come away with 2nd over the 10,000m walk at the National Champs last night in 46.24! Good base to start from and so much fun with family and friends coming to cheer me on the whole 25 laps 💛💚 Unfortunately I guess this means I can't complain about all my cross training sessions to my S&C coach anymore 😩 Cos they definitely got me over the line! #circuitsofdeath#ihateswimming#walking#athsvic#aac17
