Narrabeen All Nighter
Posted Monday 28 Nov 2016 by Michael Gentle
Narrabeen All Nighter is a fun ultramarathon event that will be held overnight on New Year's Eve 31 December 2016.

Entries for this year's event are closing at 10am this Wednesday 30 November - options include a 12 hour race, 6pm marathon or midnight marathon.

If you are looking for a New Year's Party with a difference this event could be for you!

The closing date has been set early so that the organisers can order sufficient Tshirts and bibs. Ron and Horrie are accomplished runners themselves and understand that sometimes it is hard to commit. If you are a "definite maybe", let them know so they can factor you in. It is our understanding that they will accept late entries up to a capacity field, but no guarantees on one of the snazzy shirts!

If you are unable to run, perhaps you can volunteer.

Presentation Day this Weekend
Posted Friday 26 Aug 2016 by Dave Kistle

On Saturday 27 August we have our final club Winter Cross Country run for the season.

Please note that the 4km run will be FIRST at 2pm, followed by the 2km at 2:30pm
The 4 km is off scratch (group start) and is "nominate your time", with the winner being closest to their predicted time, so allow some time to pick your result beforehand. And then take off your watch.
The 2 km, which is the Carruthers Cup, is a 2 km dash with a handicap start.
Remember to bring your tags as both races will be tag timed to get the results quickly.

It's also our Presentation Day, for the winners of the various cycles, Super Series, and Club Championships.
If you won an individual or team medal at an ANSW event and haven't received it, please let Greg Breen know so you can receive it on Saturday or make other arrangements.

We will celebrate with a BBQ (thanks Mick from Plaza Quality Meats Riverwood) and afternoon tea, please bring a plate with some goodies to share.

Yes, the season has gone quickly! Put that Olympic and City to Surf motivation to good use in our Summer Cross Country series on Wednesday evenings from mid October to mid February. David and Kerry Edwards do an excellent job organising this, which sets you up well for the following season. We also have the Summer Track& Field season approaching, one of the highlights being the team Relays day in November.
