Saturday Session, On Tour Wrap Up & BRS Birthday Party Update

Saturday Session

Join us for a long run.  If we haven't seen you yet since our return from Cook Islands would love to catch up.

Good luck to all competing in the Tooheys Trail Run on Sunday.  Hope to see some of you there for your last little turning over of the legs before the race.

When: Saturday 7th October

Where: Meet at Captain Burke Park

Time:  6am - 7:30am

8am - Breaky and coffee at Puk

On Tour Wrap Up

Well we have returned from our Cook Island tropical getaway.

We all have the post holiday blues, returning to work and getting on with our normal life.

Once again I would like to congratulate everyone on their individual performances and thank everyone for making this BRS on Tour so memorable.  I felt like it really brought us together as a team.  That is hard to do with such an individual sport like running.

We are now turning our attention to next years BRS On Tour location.  And I am very excited about the options and possibilities we are all coming up with.

Can't Wait.

BRS Birthday Party

Final details are being made for our 8th Birthday Party.  

Keep an eye open for the facebook Invite.

When : Saturday 18th November
Time: Lunch and/or dinner options

Hope all can make.  I know I'll be racing to get there!!!

Saturday Session & New Uniforms & Save the Date

Saturday Session

When: Saturday 9th September

Where: Meet on the Stairs of the Southbank Surf Club


Time:  6am - 7:30am

Cost: $2

Finally we are on the down hill stretch to Cook Islands.

This weekend if you are following the program is 25km.  However, if you feel this is too much after some very long runs the previous weekends, it would be very accecptable to make it 20km or even 18km depending on how you feel.

Matt L will be running in from home then doing a further 10 -12km starting at 6am.

Other options are to do a fast 5km parkrun after a long run.

Followed by breakfast as always!!

Good luck to all those competing in The GReater Springfield Run For Life this Saturday afternoon!

Uniforms

As I said in a previous blog, we like to make a bit of a hoo haa about presenting the on tour uniforms.

So, why don't we have a dinner, receive our uniforms and have a last pump up about our big trip to the Cook Islands.

We haven't forgotten about our "Splitter On Tour" group.  We will have your on tour uniforms there also.

When: Monday 18th September

Where : The Ship Inn, Southbank

Time: 7pm after our session

Don't forget to order your food before your run so the kitchen can have it ready straight away.  We will have a table booked outside in the beer garden.

Anyone who ordered a regular BRS uniform I will be bringing them for collection this Saturday 9th September after our long run and every other session Matt L can make it to, (next on is Monday 11th September)

BRS Birthday Party

Save the date for the biggest partaay in 2017!

When : Saturday 4th November

Details to follow!

Due to the Cook Island on tour trip and Matt L having a crappy roster during the month of October, our BRS birthday party will be held early November.

Keep an eye out for details as they emerge.  Any suggestions for party location and theme (because we love a good themed party) would be great.

Apologies for the long wait, but it was a massive drama getting the design approved.
