A Border little athletics centre will welcome a Paralympian to its competition as part of community round this weekend.

Albury Little Athletics Centre was one of 23 winners selected by Little Athletics Australia to receive a visit from an elite athlete and will host wheelchair racer Eliza Ault-Connell on Saturday.

Secretary Elisabeth McGuire said the Albury centre was excited to welcome Ault-Connell as it had been recognised for its multiclass program by Little Athletics Victoria.

McGuire said the centre wanted to continue to raise awareness that little athletics was inclusive to all.

"Our multiclass athletes were very excited to hear the news and our entire centre can't wait to be inspired by Eliza's stories of her athletic journey," she said.

Community round is a welcome distraction for Border athletes after the Region Track and Field carnival to be held at Shepparton over the weekend was cancelled due to Victoria's lockdown.
