27th September – 2nd October
Runners are arriving in Alice this week for their final camp and to determine who will be selected for the New York team. Final components of the Certificate III in Community Rec will be delivered and runners will have an opportunity to put some of what they have learnt into practice at the Community Fun Run on Friday evening.
The community fun run will take place at the Araluen Arts Centre from 5pm and everyone is welcome to attend and give it a go. Prizes will be awarded for age group winners along with random participation prizes. A free BBQ will proceed the fun run and will celebrate the achievements of last year’s athlete’s Charlie Maher and Caleb Hart.
A 30km test event is being held on Saturday morning and will depart Flynn’s Grave at 05:30 and finish at Crown a couple of hours later. We would love to see the Community participate in this event and cheer the team on.
Saturday evening the New York team will be announced and were expecting a few tears of joy and disappointed. Those who miss out on the New York team will have the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon next April if they keep up their training.
