A reminder to think about entering the Orange Running Festival in 2020 (Held on March 7 & 8 at Gosling Creek). There is an event for everyone, from the kids 2km on the Saturday afternoon to the 5km, 10km, Half Marathon and Marathon on the Sunday morning. Also the committee will be looking for volunteer helpers prior to and during the event, so please put your hand up to help in the New Year, or contact Mike O’Mara for more information.


Next Wednesday there will be no club run on Christmas Day.


Wishing all Runners Club members and their families a happy and safe Christmas and New Year Holiday.
