Dear runners

Saints have been on the international stage recently, congratulations to all!

Matt Rees competed in the IAAF World Athletics Under 20 Championships in Poland. Matt threw the javelin 69.82m for a PB, and finished 10th.

On 14 August, this Sunday morning at 10:25am Australian time, Ben St Lawrence competes in the 10 000m track race in Rio.
Ben is the Australian record holder for that distance, and this will be his 2nd Olympics. Hopefully we can see that on the big screen at the City to Surf.

Nicole Harris has also been selected in the Paralympic team in the Shot Put, we'll follow her progress with interest.

CALLING all city to surf volunteers

Hi everyone volunteering/marshalling for the city to surf is not only lots of fun but it also brings in much needed funds for our club which goes back into supporting our runners.

We usually get to Marshall the red or yellow group so, if you still want to to run it you can do both but we do need those that help out too.

Please let us know by responding by email and complete the whs form below.

Endeavour Cup location change
Posted Monday 27 Jun 2016 by Colin Wilson
Hi All
The circus is in town and the Endeavour Cup has to move to make room. Therefore Miranda Park is out and Grays Point is in.

The Endeavour Cup run will now be held at Grays Point starting right next to the Local Public School at 109 Angle Road Grays Point.

Course is a fire trail with a few hills. It will still will be an enjoyable afternoon; you may want to car pool as parking gets a bit tight.

Race times.
1km - 1.50pm (No Points run for little kids)
2km - 2.00pm
3km - 2.15pm
5km - 2.35pm
7.5km - 3.10pm

So a little further to travel but the rewards will be a run in or near the national park.

Endeavour Cup
Posted Saturday 25 Jun 2016 by Colin Wilson
Hi Red and Whites
Next weekend we run for the highly regarded Endeavour Cup. This is contested between Sutherland, Randwick, Illawong and St George Athletics Clubs. It is held on one day over 4 races and has a complicated formula which means if you have many runners and if a few runners win or are close to winning that club wins the cup.
Last year St George won this cup for the first time in the 30 or so years of the competition. Therefore next week we will defend the cup at Miranda Park starting on the Boulevard near the health centre. It is hosted by Sutherland this year. We will confirm times soon but it will be roughly as our usual times. So we need as many runners to turn up next week so we can successfully defend our honour. Also this is the last race before the Super Series so if you look like winning on points you need to be there.
