The winter series resumes this weekend with a 2/4/6 km event at Stromlo Forest Park on Saturday. The 2 km starts at 12.45pm, with both the 4 and 6 km events at 1.00 pm. These races are great preparation for any of our younger runners targeting the ACT Schools Cross Country events, and the longer events are pointscore races in the winter pointscore competitions. As usual, these runs are free to members, $10 adults, $5 under 18s for non-members.
All the winter series events need volunteers to help with jobs like timing, marshalling and recording. These roles are not complicated or arduous, but our events can't happen without them. If you can help out at any of our winter series races, please contact Dave Osmond at
The next weekend on 26-27 May sees our Half Marathon events, with a 1.6km and 5km races on Saturday afternoon (1.30 pm for the 1.6km and 2.00 pm for the 5 km) and the Half Marathon on Sunday morning. If you are planning to run the Half Marathon and haven’t entered already, please sign up online via before midnight on Friday 25 May. This makes it easier for processing. You can enter at race headquarters in Lennox Gardens on the Saturday afternoon, but we accept cash and credit cards only. Entry to the 1.6 and 5 km events are taken on the day and are free to Club members as usual.
Thanks to the many Club members who have volunteered to help with these events.
