The local to Yarrawonga, iconic sporting carnival has been a must-see event for the past 63 years, drawing elite athletes from across the country on the third Saturday in March each year.

The committee has told the Yarrawonga Chronicle there are fewer people with the time to maintain the Burramine tradition and reputation as one of the best athletics meetings on the Victorian Athletic League calendar.

They have decided to ‘go out on top’ after winning the Victorian Runners’ and Trainers’ Association Presidents Award in May.
