The virtual runs for this weekend sees us back in the Cabonne LGA with Stagecoach Road being the venue with normal distances of 2km, 3km, 5km, 8km & 12km. Stagecoach always delivers with wonderful views and a variety of underfoot track, small decent flats but a couple of punishing inclines.  You will be able to do your run anytime between Saturday and the Wednesday cut off time to get your run time and distance to Micheal (by 3pm Wednesday 13st Oct). Please remember to follow all current health directives & Covid rules for maintaining safe distancing. Information on the course can be found on the Orange Runners Club website and updates will be provided through the Runners Club email.

Please continue to check the website, Facebook and watch your emails for more information on all of our club activities and news as potentially our club runs may be able to return to a more normal appearance in the near future.

The club is also calling for members to put forward nominations for our Runner of the Year and Junior Runner of the Year.  The nomination form can be found on the website and nominations will close on October 30.  2021 criteria have been twigged a little due to Covid playing an impact on many runs.

With the end of year awards in sight remember Championships can be collected on all our virtual runs too.
Enjoy your run this weekend and head up on the Orange Running Festival – entries are open for 2022.
