NOW in its 42nd year, Dubbo’s New Year Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val didn’t miss a beat, be­gin­ning 2019 with plenty of ac­tion on the track and field.

Of­fi­cially sanc­tioned by Ath­let­ics NSW this year, the an­nual event at­tracted more than 250 ath­letes who de­scended on first-class fa­cil­ity Bar­den Park on Fri­day, Jan­uary 4, and Satur­day, Jan­uary 5.

The ath­letes of all ages trav­elled from across NSW, Vic­to­ria and Queens­land, with many win­ning events and achiev­ing per­sonal best times on the fast-paced track.

With the com­pe­ti­tion end­ing at lunchtime on Satur­day, many vis­i­tors to the city took the op­por­tu­nity to take in some sight­see­ing and ac­tiv­i­ties for the rest of the week­end.

While the event’s di­rec­tion may change in the fu­ture, it is cer­tain to con­tinue be­ing the breed­ing ground for young ath­letes for many years to come.
