Paarlauf

The Club Family Paarlauf takes place at the Clubhouse each August as part of the Three Legged Trophy.  The event is well supported, and several of the prizes are awarded to teams consisting of family members.

Relay teams of two each complete six laps of 600 metres on the playing fields (the current course has been used since 2013, the previous Victoria Recreation Ground course was around 660 metres each lap).
