Does it come in Black?

For everyone looking for a little black number for the track this season, the UC Tigers Uniform should fit the bill nicely.

There are Singlets and Speed Suits in black as well as Singlets, Tees and Crop Tops in Yellow to choose from. We can also supply Tank Tops on request.

With the new season now underway, there’s no better time to come dressed to kill and the Tigers are celebrating by offering free Training Tickets to the AIS for the first 40 full or social registrations in October to help us celebrate Ginninderra Athletics 40th Birthday.

For more information about the Club visit Facebook, join the Athletes only Facebook group or follow us on Twitter.

If you need help with registering or transferring from another club you can call our Registrar Bec Swiridziuk on 0473 081 630 or send us a message.
