AGRA National Championships

The Australian Greyhound Racing Association conducts the National Sprint and Distance Championships annually.

The events are marketed as "The Nationals" and feature finals over the distances in the vicinity of 500m and 700m. Heats and Finals are staged in each State with the Grand Final rotating from State to State each year. In 2016 the Grand Finals will be held at Angle Park, Adelaide, South Australia.

Both the National Sprint Championship and the National Distance Championship carry a first prize of $75,000 and both events are classified as Group 1 events.
