This Sunday sees the club back at Lake Canobolas, where members have the choice of one through to four laps of once of our nicest courses, a 2.5km circuit around the lake. Run will commence at 9am. In addition, we have the monthly trail run occurring at Mitchell’s Way at 6:45 am for a 7am start. This month its 13km, see club website for directions and mandatory equipment.

If members find themselves sick or injured, there is no harm in winding back training sufficiently to allow themselves to heal and recover, before returning to a full training load upon medical approval. Listen to your health professionals, as they are probably seen your condition many times before!
Members should visit the club website on or our Facebook page for further details on these and upcoming events. Those interested in joining our club should visit the club website for further information.

See you on the trail
