For our final session before the Whitsunday's BRS On Tour and an opportunity for a long run for everybody, we will be doing the following Saturday Session:
When: Saturday 13th September
Time: 6am - 7:30/7:45am
Where: Southbank - Meet at Streets Beach near Southbank Surf Club Restaurant
Parking: Park in the Southbank underground carpark for $2 in after 5am and out by 9am. Park in the middle near the pay station and the exit will bring you out near Max Brenners and our meeting point.
What: approx. 15km.
Start-off with a 50-55min run followed by Southbank 5km Parkrun to help you push yourself for that last 5km and get some pace in the legs!!
Remember, Parkrun is free! A timed 5km event - details here: www.parkrun.com.au
Not keen to finish on Parkrun (although I guarantee it will get you through the last 5km), simply do an 1.5hr run or whatever you are up for!
Cost: $2 for refreshments
Breaky and coffee afterwards.
BRS On Tour - Whitsundays Here we come!
On Saturday 20th September.....only 8 sleeps time, 32 BRS Runners and supporters will leave Brisbane destined for great things in the Whitsundays!
On Sunday our runners take part in the Run the Great Whitsunday's 28km Trail Walk (usually walked in 3 days!), our runners have 6 hours to complete it!
