Few key points on Mountain Series:
We have kept most of the races, but added Terrace Falls. This should be another scenic race.
We have rescheduled Kedumba HM to fall in November. This will also double as a race on the Sydney Strider Super Series and will again be an interclub challenge.
We lost the Bedford Creek race, but rescheduled Woodford Dam prior to 6ft to give a nice rolling run with with plenty of hills.
We have kept our two favourite races - Narrowneck night race rescheduled to avoid Xmas and Wenty Falls.
We will keep the mountain series as 'on the day registration' until further notice. Race entries will be kept to a minimum, but we have been put on notice that there will be entrant charge increases from NPWS.
Few key points on the long course series:
Glenbrook 34/42km will still be a qualifier for 6ft. In addition various podium places in the 34/42 races will have guaranteed (not paid) 6ft entry.
Our Australia Day race will not have a 12hr option. We will tweak the relay option as the race gets closer.
Mt.Solitary has been moved forward a week to give 4 weeks prior to The North Face. We will be tinkering with the course and hopefully there will still be a short option, stay tuned.
All long course race entries will be online. In addition we will not be taking long course race entries on the day. This makes our race day registration so much easier, when not handling cash and registration forms.
Our membership will be $40 for the year, from 01/07/2011 to 30/06/2012. This will include a Running Wild race singlet and discounts to all our races. In addition members are involved in the mountain series point score and terrific trail series.
All memberships this year will be online. We encourage all previous and new members to register prior to race day as we wont have the ability to accept the membership on course. Our online memberships should be fully operational in the next week or so.
Annual General Meeting:
This will be held at 1.00pm on Sunday, 26/06/2011 at Euroka Clearing, Glenbrook. This will be in the vicinity of the finish area of the Woodford to Glenbrook race. Hopefully a few members will be there post race and can pop along. We have the standard executive positions up for vote - President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and general committee positions. We encourage anyone that has an interest in our group to come along and get involved. We have a lot of behind the scenes stuff and this only happens with the time given by the committee. The old adage of many hands makes light work, is never more appropriate when putting these races on.
Attached is a race flyer. This contains information about all our race and memberships. We encourage runners to distribute this flyer amongst other runners and running clubs. Most of our runners that come to the races do so by word of mouth. We do our best to get the message out, but we appreciate any other help from members and runners.
See you all out on the trails.
