My Sport Live is pleased to announce the 2016 Sidetracked Sandy Gift will be streamed LIVE on November 13.
Brought to you from the Sandringham Athletics Club, the Sidetracked Sandy Gift is a sanctioned Victorian Athletics League (VAL) event, which is set to attract some of the best athletes from across the country.
Sandringham is the only Gift in Victoria not run on grass, giving athletes of all abilities the chance to shine on the big stage. On display throughout the event will be 10 VAL sanctioned races and two athlete with a disability events all racing for prize money, with the showpiece race of the day being the Sidetracked Sandy Gift over 300m.
Event organiser and triple Paralympian Don Elgin said viewers tuning into the Sidetracked Sandy Gift broadcast would be treated to an event ‘unlike anything they have seen before’.
“I couldn’t be happier to be a trailblazer in this way,” Elgin said.
“I’m delighted My Sport Live will help us take the Sidetracked Sandy Gift far beyond the boundaries of the Sandringham Athletics track, it’s just awesome.
“One thing that is really exciting is that it’s the only time we’ll get to see athletes with a disability running or pushing on the track with the able-bodied athletes – it’s a first and it’s really exciting.
“All race winners will be interviewed post race and the ‘Sponsors vs Celebrity’ race is sure to be entertaining. Off track there will be rides and music creating the perfect atmosphere for a great family day.”
The broadcast of the 2016 Sidetracked Sandy Gift will kick off on Sunday November 13 at 12pm. To view the stream LIVE on the day, head to http://sandygift.com.au/watch-live/.
