AFL CLUB CHALLENGE

Supporting our local Junior AFL Clubs is so important to the SUNS. We know footy starts with you! Alongside hosting the AFL Junior Club sign on day on Saturday 4 February, we’re also giving you the opportunity to rep’ your club in the local AFL Club Challenge.

By nominating your club during the registration process, you’ll automatically earn points for your club in the AFL Club Challenge, that also see’s points awarded for performance on the weekend!

Clubs that finish in the top 3 of the Club Challenge will be awarded some amazing prizes, courtesy of the Gold Coast SUNS and have bragging rights as the first ever SUNS Run Club Champions!

REP YOUR CLUB!

The Club that wins the Club Challenge will be the club (or group) that accumulates the greatest number of points for the event. Points are awarded in the following way:

  • by turnout, weighted at five points per runner, and
  • by performance with points awarded for placings in each distance age group category, (10 for 1st, down to 1 for 10th in your age group). These points will apply over all races, i.e. 10 km, 5km, & Kids Dash.

During the registration process, you will be asked if you are representing a club in the AFL Club Challenge. Simply select ‘yes’ to this question and select your club or group from the drop down list that follows.

If you have registered and forgot to nominate your club, simply drop us an email at [email protected] and we’ll assign you to your chosen club. We can also ensure any previously registered members of your club are assigned to your club. You’ll just need to provide us with their names.
