About the project

Our athletics club is raising funds to purchase electronic equipment to accurately start and time races. As of May 2019 electronic starting systems are the only way to properly start athletics races in Australia. Previously small "starting caps" based on black gunpowder created the "bang" for athletes to run, and smoke for timers to start timing. These "starting caps" are no longer permitted to be imported into Australia, hence the fundraising to purchase new starting equipment.
