Hitting the Trails & Saturday Sessions

What a way to start the year!

Big congratulations to our teams who participated in the Dusk til Dawn event at Caboolture over the weekend! It is as much a physical as a mental race running around a 500m dirt track for 2 hours can do your head in.......but at the same time I love this event for its uniqueness and challenge!

Our team of Matt C, Nick, and Andy won the male 6 hr relay and Jeremy, Dan, and Sean came in 4th for the same category!

We had some die hard supporters there (with chocolate brownies apparently!) so big thanks to them for their support.

Well done team what a great start to 2015!!

Our next BRS Event is next Sunday 15th February participating in the Brisbane Road Runners Club event. Entry is on the day $10 and events on offer are 2k, 5k, 10k & 15k and the event starts at 6am.

We will be doing a few of these throughout the year to support a local club, to get regular feedback on our running fitness/times, and to get race practice.

Saturday Sessions

A good turnout for our 2nd strength and conditioning session last weekend. Reminder: the session was the same as session 1 (we ended up doing 2.5 sets!) which is posted on our What's On Page. The point is you do the same session 2 times a week for a month (including 2 x BRS Sat Sessions) then the next month, we issue the next program. By doing it consistently you will start to notice results in your running and general fitness, and we are structuring the programs to gradually get harder, so consistency is the key!  But at any time there will be a beginners level available.

Next Session is 14th Feb - YES VALENTINES DAY! Come along dressed in RED!!!
So gentlemen come along and build up those biceps for your special lady/man (or to help meet a special lady/man!) and ladies come along to tune up those sexy calves !!

This Saturday - Hitting the trails. 

This Saturday is a trail day and you have options

Option 1: Enoggera Dam trails + swim

We have been there a few times before and loved it, so lets head back to the Enoggera Reservoir for a Trail run!!!  BUT even better, they have now opened it up for swimming with a special sectioned off area for a dip afterwards!! 

We will ensure the group stays together by looping back at every intersection and pairing up! Everyone is challenged, everyone has fun!!

Where: Meet outside the Brisbane Forest Information Centre Carpark, Off Mt Nebo Road
OR Walkabout Creek Conference Centre. 

Map reference  : 
Approx 2km from the corner of Settlement Road and Waterworks Road (the Petrol Station).

What: Trail run, various terrain!
Time: Meet at 6am to 7:30am
Coaches: Matt L 

Cost: $2

Bring your Togs for a dip afterwards!! I am sure it will be hot and humid enough! 

Option 2: Daisy Hill

Where: Daisy Hill Conservation Park

Time: 6:00am start -7:30 ish
What: an opportunity for some fun on the trails!! 

Coaches: Matt C and Liss will all be there to help you navigate the trails! 

Cost: $2

How to get there:
Daisy Hill Regional Park is easily accessed from Brisbane or the Gold Coast via the Pacific Motorway (M1). From the Gold Coast, travel north along the Pacific Motorway and take exit 24. Travelling south from Brisbane along Pacific Motorway, take exit 24 and follow the signs to Daisy Hill Road and the entrance to the park. 

Meet at the Upper Carpark, just before you get in the Main Gate.. 

As always both options will have coffee / breaky afterwards!!

Remember trail running is a great way to mix up your running regime and keeping your body and mind challenged. Varying the terrain you run on is great for injury prevention and strengthening your ankles and core. We hope to see you there. 

Thanks to everybody who put in a uniform order. We will be in touch!

Happy Running

Renae & Matt
