Saturday Session & Cook Islands

Saturday Session When: Saturday 9th April 6:30am Where: Meet at Intraining 33 Park Rd, Milton What: 1.5 hrs Long run session then coffee afterwards (you are on Park Road afterall) To Bring: Running gear (there will be plenty of water fountains during the run so drink bottles optional) Cook Island Race/Holiday The time to make a decision is fast approaching. 12th April, next Tuesday, is the date set to make a decision on weather you will be coming to the most awesome running event on BRS's calender to date or weather you will stay at home and only dream of tropical white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and fantastic company. We need a minimum of 10 committed runners to make this happen. Payment for the flights, also being your deposit is not due until after this date so you still have a little time to budget. Because we do need a minimum number, if you commit, you are locked in. It would be really aweful if we had some runners pay for the trip only to have some pull out and drop us below our minimum. Let me know via email or at training and I can get a booking form to you. This is going to be the best, so come on everyone lets go BRS on tour! Happy Running Renae & Matt
