Achievements and Saturday Session


We would love to recognise a few of our members who recently have dedicated themselves and shown really commitment to our challenge goal for 2014!
Sean B participated in a gruelling 50km, yes 50 km beach run at Bribie Island a few weeks ago. Due to the tides, the last ¼ of the race was on soft sand. Not only did he get through it, which is a massive achievement in itself, he smashed it, coming 3rd overall!  Can you imagine how much your calves would be burning after 50km on sand! Well done Sean
Nick also committed himself to an amazing challenge last weekend. He participated in the Lamington Classic a two day event in the Gold Coast Hinterland. It is Australia’s oldest trail run, running from O’Reilly’s mountain to Binna Burra along some beautiful rainforest tracks. Day 1 starts at O’Reilly’s with a 21km run to Binna Burra, staying overnight, then 21km back to O’Reilly’s on Sunday. Nick really enjoyed the run, and came in 3rd overall too!
Well done gents!!
We would love to hear from any of you out there who have been taking up the challenge and participating in some of the awesome events available in South East Queensland!
P.S. one of our long standing members Lisa F and our Mizuno Rep Shane are both participating in the Osaka Marathon in Japan this weekend. Good luck!

Saturday Session

With the predicted temperature for tomorrow being in the mid 30s, the vote was Southbank for a run and a post run dip!
So see you….
When: Saturday 25th October
Time: 6-7:30am
Where: Meet on the stairs near Streets Beach (Southbank Surf Club). Best place to park is underneath Southbank from 5am-9am for $2. Don’t forget to park in the middle and come out of the entrance near Max Brenners! This is the closest to the meeting point.
Cost: $2
Followed by Breaky!  We are open to suggestions for a breaky spot as our usual Saturday spot is getting a bit crowded and rushed! So come with some ideas!!! 

Don’t forget a towel and a change of clothes if you plan to have a dip!!
