Tonight, Saturday September 7, a special Neon night run will be held at Elephant Park from 6.30 – 8:30pm. This is not just for club members but will be recognised as a club run, so wear your timing chip with Registration at 6pm, so make sure you get there early to enjoy this new concept. There will be a BBQ, Movies, a DJ and prizes to be won.
The club is looking for nominations for ‘runner of the year’ and ‘junior runner of the year’, so please think about nominating someone you think deserves recognition for their performances during the last 12 months.
