This sounds like a great series that I will be adding to the BRS calendar for 2015!!!

Hot of the press news is the announcement of the Run Queensland Day/Night series.  It’s free to enter and the rules are pretty straightforward:

Runners must complete each event to qualify (any distance)

Scores will be an aggregate of each runners gender position with the lowest points scored being the winner:

o   i.e. place 10th at BW@N, 20th at BW@D, 15th at WH@N and 50th at WHC will give you 95 points.
o   Finish 8th, 22nd, 16th and 48th and you finish with 94 – you win!

Male and Female winners of the series will receive a trophy with the top ten male and female participants receiving a commemorative t-shirt.

So, do you want to be a Run Queensland ‘Day-Nighter’? 

The series kicks off on Saturday, January 24th on Australia Day long weekend, entries on line here:

It’s followed by BW@D, then WH@N (brought forward from August to March) and ending with WHC on Easter Sunday.
