Some of West Australia’s brightest young sporting stars will hit Hay Park next year when the track hosts the Little Athletics Western Australia 2018 State Country Championships.

About 500 junior athletes will attend the games which run from January 26-28, with participants from Broome, Geraldton, Esperance, the Goldfields and Albany.

Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan said it was one of many events that would provide significant social and economic benefits for the City.

“It is fantastic that major sporting events such as the Little Athletics Western Australia 2018 State Country Championships are held in Bunbury,” Mr Brennan said.

“Bunbury has long been recognised as a major sporting hub and this event will bring families from far and wide who will either re-discover our City or experience all it has to offer for the first time.”
