This Sunday sees the club back at CSU Orange, where members have the choice of 1 to 6 laps of a 1.6km course. In addition, there is also the monthly trail run occurring at Kinross Forest (11km), please check website for location details. This coming Wednesday sees the regular 3 lap handicap event at 5pm.
Many like to run with their dog (or other pet!).
If you must bring Fido to a Sunday run, please ensure it is kept on a shorter leash, and consider starting from the back to minimise trip hazards. Bringing an animal to Elephant Park on Wednesdays isn’t advisable due to higher running speeds and congestion.
