As the Running CEOs event is on Saturday afternoon, there will be no morning session.

If you wound still like to run Saturday morning please use the messenger strings to co-ordinate between yourselves.

Running CEO's

Below is an email from Darren.  Lots of great info in there.

Hello Team Planwell !!

With only 2 days to go, we hope that you are getting excited and ready to play an important part in the Running CEOS Fast Run Festival. This event raised $140,000 for charity last year and we are hoping to reach a combined target of $150,000 this year! 

Location & Access

This year’s race precinct is located in the park along Brookbent Road, Pallara (directly opposite the Stockland Pallara sales office).

Race Precinct & Marquees

Team Planwell will be utilising the Virtual Runner marquee, so feel free to drop in and see us before or after the race.  

Please be aware that if you need to leave between 3pm to 8pm, please do not park on Brookbent Road or within the Stockland Pallara estate. You will not be able to leave as the roads will be closed at 3pm sharp & no traffic will be allowed in or out unless there is an emergency.

General parking is available in the Vied Road park with a short 500m walk to the race precinct from 11am.

Entertainment and Cellar Door

River 94.9 will be playing music at race precinct from 11am through to 10pm at night and broadcasting live from 3pm to 6pm.

BRS On Tour

The countdown is on.

With only 20 days from today to go until we pack u the cars on our first ever BRS road trip.
I have made a rough plan for the trip down, thanks to those who offered suggestions for stops.  I am still finding it hard to find a spot to meet on the South Side of Brisbane.  Please if you are a southsider can you throw some suggestions my way.

It is the last week of our consolidation week.  Moving into tapering.  There will be 3 weeks of tapering, so a long one, but hopefully this will put the finishing touches on our lead up campaign.

Keep an eye out for the next lead up program hitting your screens next week.

And, keep an eye out for the travel itinerary coming your way with info such as meeting points, road trip details and organised events while we are in Port Macquarie.

Happy Running
BRS Coaches
