GET YOUR HEART RACING IN STAWELL!
On the 22nd of April one of the world's most famous and prestigious professional race meetings the Stawell Gift carnival, takes place.
Run on grass, athletes are handicapped according to form and ability, and start off varying marks accordingly. Hundreds of athletes compete over distances from 70 metre to 3200 metre for glory and prize money.
The main race is the Stawell Gift which is run over 120 metre up a slight gradient, with the final being held on Easter Monday.
At Easter, Central Park is transformed into an athletics mecca, with the running lanes traditionally separated by ropes, and running through the famous finish gates which are iconic features of the Gift.
