HCU update 30th May 2017

Hi everyone,

Hope your week is going well. This Saturday, we have a club run from our clubrooms, meeting at 1.30pm to leave in packs at 2pm please. There will be a kids run too. Bring something to share for PM tea.

All the best to those who are travelling to Christchurch to run the Half or Full Marathon, keep us posted!

Last Saturday, the sun came out just in time for the bus to leave for the Millennium track, everyone that went had a great time. Thank you to Steve Pinker for putting in so much effort to make this so fun:) On Sunday, we hosted the first of the Athletics Otago Childrens Cross Country series, this was a great success, and the kids had a fantastic time. The next in this series is hosted by Caversham Harriers on the 18th June at Corshophine Park. Spread the word about this as it really is a fantastic series.

Barnes Cross Country: Will be held on the 11th June. This is an interclub, short course cross country, and open to anyone who is registered with the club, either competitive or social registration, also there is a kids race. To enter this event, you must first register with the club, and then enter via the Athletics Otago Site. Dont forget, your competitive race number is the same as last year, so hopefully you have kept this to wear on the day. If not, I will need to allocate you a new number, so please get in touch early to arrange this. Here is the link for the Barnes Cross Country.  http://athleticsotago.co.nz/Events/Events/barnes-cross-country-8 Entries close at midnight on Tuesday so dont miss out!

Athletics Otago Finance Committee: We need to have a representative from our club on the finance committee for Athletics Otago, this is a great opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes in Athletics in Otago, and be involved in some decision making for our running community. It involves a meeting once per month, usually only an hour long, and you do not have to be a finance guru, just someone who is interested in being part of the behind the scenes team for the year. Please let me know if you are happy to be nominated.

Thats all I think! Feedback welcomed on the content/regularity/etc of these emails,
