Sending out the call to all SGDAC members and friends. Please note our winter cross country series will commence this Saturday. Come along and bring your family and friends to participate in the thrill of the races or just to enjoy the general socializing.

It should be another classic season of good fun mixed with a taste of excitement, adrenaline running and natural endorphins flowing. Trialing forms available for newcomers who like a run.

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.
