Cook Athletics Field

Located at Cook Neighbourhood Oval on Biffin Street (Belconnen), the picturesque Cook Athletics Field has a dedicated athletics facility with a separate 100m and 300m circular running track, long jump pits with all weather run-ups and throwing circles,  including one discus cage and three separate shot put circles.

The ACT Government provides both on-leash and off-leash opportunities to exercise dogs. Cook Oval is designated as a ‘dog exercise area’. A number of families exercise their dogs at Cook Oval regularly during the week.

Cook Oval is located approximately 7 minutes from the Belconnen Town Centre. For more information contact Belconnen Little Athletics Centre.

Inaugural Athletics ACT Club Championships

The inaugural Athletics ACT ‘Club Championships/Relay Day’ was held on the 7th of November 1998 at the AIS track.

The final result was a tight win to Combined Universities on 222 points, from South Canberra Tuggeranong second on 193 points and Woden Harriers third on 43 points.

The event was also a selection trial for the Athletics Australia National Clubs Championships to be held in Melbourne on 21 March 1999 with CUAC earning the opportunity in its first year.
