IN A whirlwind of cheers, laughter, and some seriously impressive athletic feats, the little athletes of Murrindindi brought the house down in their final Saturday session of the season. Under the backdrop of perfect weather, the morning kicked off with a warm- up, featuring a race walk focus, then sack races, egg-and-spoon relays over hurdles, the children showed off their agility and teamwork with gusto, leaving a trail of giggles in their wake that set the tone for the magical day ahead.

However, it wasn’t just the kids stealing the show; parents were roped into the action too, encouraged by their pint-sized coaches to tackle events like shot put, javelin, and the ever-competitive 60m dash. A special nod goes to Renee Drysdale for orchestrating the parent events with flair, and the much- anticipated Murrindindi Little Aths ‘gift race’, which delivered its fair share of thrills.
