My name is Luca Hogg. I attend Majura Primary School. I play hockey for the Uni Juniors Hockey Club and I compete for the Corroboree Little Athletics Club. I have been fortunate enough to be selected in the ACT team for both hockey and athletics, to compete in the National Championships. 

The National Hockey Championships will be held in Bendigo in August and the Track and Field National Championships will be held in Darwin in September.  

In Darwin, I will compete in the combined event, which involves the 100m sprint, long jump, 800m and shot put; I will also compete in the 4x100m relay. I am currently training three times a week for athletics and three times a week for hockey.

 

I am hoping to contribute to some of the expenses for both these Championships, so I would like to invite you all to participate in a fundraiser trail run called the BOLT AGAINST BOLT.

 

Bolt is my border collie. He is 4 years old and loves running. I named him after Usain Bolt.

 

I would like to challenge you to come and race against Bolt in a 6km trail run in the beautiful Majura Pines (or in the 1km race if you'd prefer the shorter distance) which will be held immediately following the 6km run. 

 

Bolt has been training hard for the event.  Will you be able to keep up with him as he leads the race out?
