For 2017, we are so proud to announce that Brisbane Run Squad have again be chosen by Mizuno to be a Mizuno Ambassador Squad and for myself, Matt L, Matt C, and Liss to represent the brand and what it stands for.
We have been part of the Mizuno team for 7 years now and we look forward to continuing with them. Mizuno headquarters in Sydney have recently bought on board a new Ambassador Manager, Michael, he comes with new, fresh ideas and energy we are looking forward to working with him and David who is our State Rep.
Michael is coming to town to meet with us and hold an Ambassador VIP event on Wednesday 15th February, where we will also have the chance to meet the other local Mizuno Ambassadors. This is a first and we are really looking forward to it.
As part of our new Ambassador arrangement, all BRS members can now enjoy 20% off Mizunos at our partner Shoes Feet Gear (previously 10%). Remember to take along your BRS membership card to obtain the discount. Haven't collected your card? We have them at training each week, so pop along and grab it!
We will keep you up to date during the year with Mizuno shoes and invite David along for a test wear session or two!
A BIG Thanks to Mizuno for their on-going support for us and the Squad.
Saturday 11th February
With this heat, its hard to go past the Southbank Lagoon for a post run dip. It is predicted 35 degrees on Saturday and there are lots of options for drink stations around the Southbank area.
When: Saturday 11th February
Where: Meet on the Stairs of the Southbank Surf Club
Time: 6am - 7:30am Matt and Liss will be there as coaches.
For those running Sunday, an opportunity for a light run before the event. For all others, enjoy your hitout!
Parking - don't forget only $2 under Southbank from 5am-9am or 10am with your parkrun token.
Session Cost: $2
Followed by a lagoon dip, breaky & coffee of course!
Also, good luck to Matt L and any other BRSer's competing in the 16km Spartan Course on Saturday. It is sure to be brutal!
Sunday 12th February
Round 6 @ Hinze Dam
10.7km / 18.1km
Wow, race number 6 already!! You can access the participant guide here
It is SURE to be a hot one. Bring plenty of water! A good tip popping icecubes in your hydration pack before you leave home in the morning. They will have melted by the time you start and leave you with nice cold water during the event. Also, pop your hydration bladder with some water in the fridge the night before.
It is going to be a tough one I am sure, but nothing we can't handle!!
See you all there!
