Grass Games Wrap 2021
UTS Norths hosted the fifth edition of the Grass Games at Rotary Athletics Field on Saturday 10 April. Normally held early in the season, this year it was the last competition before the National Championships, having being delayed due to the restrictions around COVID-19 and hosting events.
The Grass Games was born out of a joint initiative with Athletics NSW and features non-standard events such as the 60 metre Skins and The Eliminator along with an aggregate long jump. Supporting events include the 60m, 150m, 300m, 600m and the mile plus the discus and shot put.
With prize money on offer, The Eliminator attracted a quality field, which included Bethany Halmy (MW) and Will Austin-Cray (BAN) having their last races before the National Championships and a number of athletes who had had disrupted seasons and were looking to finish on a positive note.
