Event overview

The 2018 Melanesian Regional Championships will be held from 9th-11th May 2018 in Port Vila, Vanuatu.

Athletics North Queensland in conjunction with Athletics Australia sees the Melanisian Championships as an opportunity to expose athletes who may not otherwise get an opportunity to participate in international competition. 

This will be a wholly self-funded Team (travel, accommodation, levies and team uniform together with all other associated expenses).

Athletes will be responsible for booking their own flights. 
Athletes will be expected to travel to Port Vila on their own. If possible, we will let let athletes know what flights the team management will be on, however there is a chance team staff will have to fly over prior to the athletes.
