The 2019 Ballarat Gift will be held at the City Oval on the 9th and 10th of February. See Program page for details. Hope to see you all there.

2018 saw Luke Mitchell as the youngest ever winner of the Men's Ballarat Gift and for Kate Jones, after 5 finals it was a dream come true.Thanks for the great coverage from WIN News Ballarat.



It was my honour to run in the Ballarat women’s gift and gave me so much pride to win it after so many years of contesting. 

The Ballarat Gift meet is always beautifully organised with so many great features like parading the junior finalists with the gift finalists so it is was extremely special to achieve this long term ambition.
It is exciting to bring inspiration to young athletes through my coaching and now also through my own accomplishments which I find extremely satisfing. 
Thank you to the Ballarat Gift for providing a professional, family fun and exciting racing meet. Thank you to Mick Benoit for always believing in me, my family for supporting me and my training partners Jaqui Mcann, Nathan Jones, Myles Medwell and especially my sister Beth Jones for inspiring me when she won the juinor 400m earlier in the day.
