4. Helpers/Volunteers Club Events - With the exception of admin assistance from YMCA Canberra the YCRC is an all-volunteer organisation. You do not need to be a committee member to play an active role in helping your club. Our Winter Series of events starts on Saturday 18th April at Stromlo Forest Park with a 2/5k at 1245pm. If you can help please contact David Osmond.

5. Club Winter Program – If you are planning to run in our Winter Series events, please ensure that you check the location of the event on the club website during the week of the events. The small card ‘Calendar of Events’ which was printed in early 2015 might always be correct. Approvals for events are not always forthcoming and one known change is on 9th May. Due to the unavailability of Stromlo Forest Park on 9th May we will have 2k/3.1k and 6.2k at North Lyneham. Then on 6th June instead of the North Lyneham events we will be at Stromlo Forest Park for 2/4/6k events.
