Give the gift of fun & fitness & Kurrawa Gold Coast 50 weekend

Monday 21st December: Our holiday Dinner and Your chance to give a gift of fun and fitness!

Monday 21st December if our annual holiday dinner before people start to travel and spend time with friends and family. 

This year, we want our holiday dinner night to be bigger and better than before........


On Monday 21st December, bring a friend along to training and they train for FREE!! (you could go halves and have a $3 session!). If you can't make it, send your friend along we will make them feel welcome! 

Have your friend join us for dinner afterwards and they will go into the draw to win 2 months of unlimited sessions (January and February!) and you win unlimited sessions in January!

We will also have random prize draws of Mizuno Shoes and apparel and be giving our your new membership cards. 

Now that is worth motivating a friend to come along, experience BRS, enjoy running and potentially give them the gift of fun and fitness. 

When: Monday 21st December

Where: Meet on the Beer Garden side of the Ship Inn

Dinner: The Ship Inn, Southbank

Time: *6pm training, 7:15pm dinner

* come a little earlier to introduce your friend and order your dinner to help out the Ship Inn staff. 

Cost: $6 for members, $8 for non members, OR your new friend is free.....or $3 each!! Please make this is a new person to BRS, not a friend who has come regularly in the last 12 months. 

We hope to see you there with your friends/family!

Sunday: Gold Coast 50

When: Sunday 13 December, 2015

Meeting Point: Start & Finish Line:

Tent: as we have entered more than 20 people, we get 2 x 3 x 3 marquee, table, chairs, esky, ice and liquid refreshments, free of charge.  YEY 

Time: See everybody there about 4:30am (Ikes!) 

Start times are 0500 hrs for the 50km solo and the 2 person relay, 0515 for the 30km event and 0530 for the 15 km. Electronic timing will be employed and gun times will be used rather than chip times

See the website for full details  

It is going to be hot; here are the details of the aid stations. I recommend carrying your own hydration also. 

Aid stations: Competitors in the longer events are encouraged to carry their own supplies as the weather can be quite warm at this time of year, especially on the return leg. Full aid stations will be positioned at 5km intervals and will carry water, Endura sports drink, Coca Cola, chopped banana and glucose type lollies. Intermediate stations carrying water only will be positioned halfway between each of the 5 km aid stations. This race will be conducted during the onset of summer and it’s bound to be hot, especially on the return leg. Make sure you are properly hydrated the night before the race, take plenty of water during the race and don’t forget to take the Endura sports drink. It aids absorption of the water….water alone is not enough. If you are feeling dehydrated or dizzy, get under one of the many showers located along the beachfront. Ice will be available at all major aid stations. The last six aid stations will all carry ice.

Gold Coast Marathon! Team entries open!
