Congratulations to Oscar Meek for achieving 50 runs, collecting his medal on Wednesday. Looking forward to you continuing to build up your runs with us.
Next Sunday’s club run is out at Pinnacle, the normal 3, 5 and 10km distance options (slightly different courses) will be marked out. For the more adventurous, we are running the Great Volcanic Mountain Challenge being the distance of 11km. Runners wanting to do the GVMC course will need to email Jean and Basil Baldwin at firstname.lastname@example.org before 8pm on Saturday to get entered into their timing system. If you are doing the GVMC, please do not where your ORC timing chip as you will get a special device from the Baldwins. You must start the GVMC between 8:30 and 8:45 and will have to make your own way back down to the Pinnacle car park from the top. There will be no drinks or marshalling on the course so please be prepared for these conditions.
Upcoming Sunday Club runs:
November 15 – Stagecoach Road
November 22 – Gosling Creek
November 29 – Lake Canobolas
