Half Marathon information
The starting point for reading about the Half Marathon is here
and you can link to full details here.

Winter speedygeese training has begun.
5:30pm Mondays Parliament House as usual.
5:30pm Thursdays Dickson Oval RESTARTS TODAY.

I am hoping for a big turn-out as we re-commence track training at 5:30pm today, on grass, under lights. If you have been "missing" for a while, now is the time to get back into the Thursday training routine, before the on-set of wintry weather makes it more difficult to resume.

**NEW STARTERS WELCOME** - It's free, it's fun, and it's a fast path to fitness.

Coming Events
Sat 25 Apr ANZAC RELAYS 4 x 3.6k, 1pm, Northcote Drive Majura
Sun 26 Apr ACTMA RUNNING/WALKING HANDICAP Majura 10km/5km 9:00am
Sat 2 May COOLEMAN RIDGE 1/5/8k 12pm, Eucumbene Drive (swapped from 9 May)
Sun 3 May WOMEN'S AND GIRLS' JOGALONG 6km, 9am, Weston Park.
Sat 9 May STROMLO FOREST PARK 1/2.5/5K CC 12:00noon, 12:15pm, 1:00pm, Stromlo Forest Park, Uriarra Road (swapped from 2 May)

Sun 17 May CANBERRA HALF MARATHON 21.1km, 9:00am, Nara Peace Park

Additionally, I plan to resume at BBQ Stakes Wednesday lunchtimes, for their 6k handicap race. It's a great event for those who can get to Woden at that time each week. And I plan to run at Stromlo Forest Park Friday mornings (probably starting at 11am or so) and if anyone else is interested in joining me there this winter we could negotiate a time.

Marathon photos will be featured here for a while. Here's the first.
