This Weekend, Next Week, and Beyond

Gold Coast Marathon Festival

It's here.  One of our premier events of the year.  Many of you have been training all year for this event (and some of you have been cramming).

Once again we will have the awesome BRS tent at the event.  Everyone is welcome to use it as a base to meet others, store gear and cheer on the athletes.  Sunday will also see us celebrating our achievements with pizza at the tent while the final runners of the marathon bring it home.

Where: The tent will be located in Anzac Park, between the entrance to Broadwater Parklands                          (finishers shute) and North St, Gold Coast Hwy intersection.  This location depends on how                many tents already set up when we get there, so just keep an eye out for the Blue and White.

What: Saturday 4th - 10km @ 6:30am
                                - 5.7km @ 8:00am
                                - 2km Junior dash @ 9:25am
                                - 4km Junior dash @ 9:40am
            Sunday 5th - half-Marathon @ 6:00am
                               - Marathon @ 7:20am

When: Renae and Matt will be at the tent 30 - 45 minutes before the first race of the day start.

Celebratory Lunch: It is not too late to RSVP to the pizza lunch on Sunday 5th.  Please SMS Renae                                     on 0447578205 if you are interested by 4pm today (friday).  Cost is $14, $5 kids under 10 includes soft drink.  BYO alcohol and plate

Other Stuff:  Race numbers will be located at the tent if you still need to pick them up.

Next Week

There will not be any training next week (Monday 6th - Sunday 12th).  Use this as down time to recover, relax and think about what event you want to do next.  Renae and Matt will be on a very well deserved holiday in Bali (awesome!!!).

Training will recommence on Monday 13th.  See you there.
