Summer Down Under
Thursday 18 – Saturday 27 January 2018
Incorporating the 29th year of the iconic Oz Day 10K.
The Summer Down Under Wheelchair Road Racing Series is the highest profile wheelchair sporting event in Australia. The Series has grown from a single road race to two international competitions, road and track events, and the event attracts the finest wheelchair athletes from across the globe.
The 2018 GIO Summer Down Under Series will feature the following:
Canberra International Track Meet – 2 evenings of racing at the Australian Institute of Sport Track on Saturday 20 & Sunday 21 January (racing starts at 5:30pm).
Sydney Twilight Track Meet – Twilight racing at Blacktown International Sportspark Athletics Centre on Wednesday 24 January from 5.00pm.
Note- Due to Sydney’s Light Rail roadworks the Oz Day 10K course has undergone a renovation! The start / finish line is outside the MCA on George St.
