There sure is a lot happening at the moment I don't know where to begin.  The first of the Winter trail runs came and went with a great meal and specially brewed beer to wash it down afterwards.  I can highly recommend "Greenslade Micro Brewery".   The next run in the winter trail series is just around the corner, see details in this newsletter.

Christmas in July was a great weekend of running in Mt Tamborine thanks to Digger for his hard work.  

Runners enjoyed a return to the Daisy Hill trails instead of the normal Dock St option and the Friday morning Black berry St runs are also being well supported.   Dont forget the fast approaching Quiz Night on the 3rd of September.

Instead of sleeping in this Wednesday holiday, come join us for a run around Daisy Hill.  We meet at the final BBQ area on the ring road of the Daisy Hill Koala Sanctuary.  The run will commence at 6.30, and go for about 1 hour.  We shall finish with a sausage sizzle and tea/coffee .

This should be a fun morning for those that don't have to work.

Hi All, 
Our August night run has been scouted, and this time it will be a run with a difference. 

It has been 44 years since Neil Diamond recorded Hot August Night ( 24 th August 1972) and to commemorate , we shall be having a singalong.. I am sure most of you know at least some of the words to classics such Sweet Caroline, Cherry Cherry, Cracklin Rosie, and my favourite Crunchy Granola Suite.

Our very own Neil "the diamond" Ticknell will be there to assist in case any of you forget the words.

It is a 7klm run around the paths and trails of Mansfield. Torches or lamps will be required for parts of the run ( we will have some spares). It will commence from Mansfield Tavern carpark at 7pm.

The run is on Wed August 17th 2016.

It will be a fun evening,

I look forward to seeing you all

Have you got Old Shoes to Recycle

Have you got running shoes that you no longer use but don’t want to throw  in the bin?  They can be put to good use.  Shoes play such an important role in everyone’s lives – can you imagine not owning a pair?
Many people have nothing to keep their feet warm and clean and we can all do our little bit to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Please help us to deliver your shoes as quickly as we can by following the guidelines below;

  • SPORTS SHOES only please.
  • NO HOLES AND GOOD SOLES. It is not worth shipping shoes to an orphanage in Southern Africa if they are broken! We want to send shoes that will last a whole winter.
  • CLEAN! Would you like to receive a dirty pair of shoes? They can be hand scrubbed or washed on a short cold cycle in the washing machine. Best dried in the sun stuffed with newspaper – no tumble trying please as it destroys the shoe.

Jodie can collect shoes from people if that is more convenient.  “I will have a box in my car.  I am usually at QSAC on Tuesday mornings and sometimes Saturday.”
