Gold Coast Marathon Reminders + Saturday Session

Gold Coast Marathon Reminders: 

1. Race Pack Collection
If you entered under the BRS Team, I will be collecting your packs as a group on Saturday 28th June.
You can get your race pack on Monday 30 June or Wednesday 2 July at training.
If you miss those opportunities, you will have be able to grab it from the BRS Tent at Gold Coast.  on Saturday or Sunday.

2. Tapering
If you are doing the marathon, you should have started the tapering off on your long sessions at least this week. Its about maintenance, injury prevention and mental strength now!! If its your first half marathon, same goes! If you are doing the 10km event, attending regular BRS sessions will effectively be your taper.

3. Post Gold Coast Celebration!!
Previous years have shown us that it is hard for people to cheer on team mates in the final stages of the marathon and attend the BRS after party held Sunday lunch time.

So......this year we thought we would combine the both. 
You will be able to cheer on your peers AND have a delicious lunch, AND, a few cheeky beverages.
