Thanks to all the club members and their friends and family who come to help us with the fun-draiser lamb tasting session at the Department of Food Sciences last night. It sure was fun! Thanks to Phil Bremer for getting us this club fundraiser for us, and for the yummy lamb samples!
This weekend, we have the club cross country at Rotary Park. This is combined with Ariki, and possibly Leith also. Its a fun 5km course, and its handicapped. My favourite! All the club members who have run something this season have a handicap all set to go, and there is no charge for this event. We will meet at the Ariki clubrooms at Bayfield Park at 1.30pm, get a race number and handicap, and from there we will head up to Rotary Park to get started for 2pm. You can run up, or carpool with someone. Please bring something to share for afternoon tea back at the Ariki clubrooms after. If you need a ride to Bayfield, let me know:) Childcare can also be available if needed.
Saturday 30th June: The Edmond Cup Cross Country- Wingatui, Mosgiel. This is an Otago Centre event, so entries are online at Athletics Otago. We are the lead club for this event, so help is needed to set up and take down the course please. If you are running, can you please let me know if you are able to head out a bit earlier (12pm) and can help set up. Thanks in advance!
Kennett Cup XC champs- Christchurch, 7th July: Entries close for this on the 2nd July, and are via the club only. If you are planning to run this event, please let me know by Monday so I can get this done for you.
