  1. After the success of the Forster running festival held in September, the Hastings council have welcomed me to into their town to stage the inaugual Port Macquarie running festival. The event will boast the same format as Forster, allowing everyday people the opportunity to achieve their goals from a 5km walk to a 21.1km half marathon. The course is designed to showcase Port Macquaries beautiful Hastings river, oceanside, and breakwalls while the start and finish will be right in the centre of town in the Town Green. The Port Macquarie running festival has a run for everyone, COME AND RUN PORT ! Check out our facebook page for all the lastest infomation and the website will be up and running within days. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Port-Macquarie-Running-Festival/276902379011584 Great If you are racing Ironman Australia in may and you want to come and train on the course before the day and the half marathon is almost the same as ironman. There is also usually a swim on the saturday along the swim course. check it out anyway.
  2. Not sure if many/any of you are familiar with John 'Hadd' Walsh, who was a distance running coach of some standing. I have been reading some of his stuff & it seems to make sense. I'd love some of the more knowlegable athletes/runners to have a read of the link & provide some feedback. http://www.angio.net/personal/run/hadd.pdf
  3. Any questions send me a PM. Horrendously Hilly Half Marathon Date: Sunday 6th November 2011 Location: Western Sydney Parklands Sugarloaf Ridge and the M7 Cycleway. Time: 8:30 am Cost: Free Distances: 21.1km and 10km. Access to the Start/Finish area can be achieved from Walgrove Rd, then Saxony Rd, then Border Rd. A location map is here. Here is the facebook page link. Invite anyone you want. The more the merrier. The plan is to have a couple of drink stations along the route. Prizes will be on offer, but breaking from tradition, the prizes will not only go to the podium places, but to ordinary folk who may finish middle of the pack or back of the pack. The Horrendously Hilly Half Marathon Course consists a a few hills. 7 in total. In most cases you get to go down them before you have to go back up them. The worst hill is the final hill but its only 700m and 6.8% Grade. 95% of the course is on the M7 cycleway between the Equestrian centre and Hoxton Park Rd, consisting of smooth bitumen hot mix and small sections of concrete. The other 5% of the course is on a course chip road. The 10 km route follows the same route as the HHHM but the turn around point is at the top of the hill at Cecil Hills. The course will be clearly marked. The Elevation profile. The tables and chairs. We can relax here looking out at the view as we recover. The view from the top. The view of the surrounding district all the way to the city from the Ridge is wonderfully peaceful and a perfect place for families and friends to relax and have a bbq lunch or morning tea. Beautiful one day, perfect the next. A real gem of Western Sydney Toilets. Another gem of the West. Running water available. A large bbq will be bought along so a communal cook-up can happen. All rubbish must be removed at the end of the day. The course is not closed, most of it is on the bike path and therefore courtesy to all other users is required. No littering on course. FATASS EVENT, MEANING FREE, NOT 100% ACCURATE, JUST ROCK UP AND RUN
  4. Ok, so.... You are running an event that is a 5km fun run that is aimed at begginers. Now said course would ideally be a 2 lap course if possible. The course must not cross roads/gates/fences and would ideally be on one of the many bike paths we have. We would need to have access to this course for 48 weeks a year reasonably unrestricted (as in, apart from a few passers by etc be able to use the paths etc without any dramas) from ~8am through ~10am (start time will be either 8am or 9am). Said course would need to be within a very easy walk of a coffee shop and have ample parking for a predicted 100 weekly runners (give or take). Where would you hold it in a central location? I know the AIS is one venue that ticks all of the above, There are a couple of spots on Burley Griffin, one around ANU. Tuggers and Gunghalin are out due to location (too far either way south/north). Lake Ginnindera could be one, somewhere Woden could be another. So what would you do and where?
  5. SHOE TESTERS NEED FOR RUNNING SHOE RESEARCH JOIN THE ELIGIBILITY LIST Do cushioned running shoes prevent injuries or cause them? Does a running shoe with an elevated heel speed you up or slow you down? Researchers at the University of Newcastle are planning a series of studies to determine how basic differences in running shoe design, such as heel elevation and degree of cushioning, affect injury rates and distance running performance. A eligibility list of runners interested in taking part in this research is now being created. Runners on the eligibility list will be contacted when runners are being recruited to take part in this research. All Australian runners aged 18 or over are eligible for inclusion on the eligibility list. If you would like to be considered for inclusion in these studies, please complete the online survey accessible via this link. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Eligibility_Survey For further information please contact Dr Craig Richards E Craig.Richards@newcastle.edu.au T 0438 264 264 Complaints about this research This project has been approved by the University’s Human Research Ethics Committee, Approval No. H-2011-0244. Should you have concerns about your rights as a participant in this research, or you have a complaint about the manner in which the research is conducted, it may be given to the researcher, or, if an independent person is preferred, to the Human Research Ethics Officer, Research Office, The Chancellery, The University of Newcastle, University Drive, Callaghan NSW 2308, Australia, telephone (02) 49216333, email Human-Ethics@newcastle.edu.au.
  6. I was just in the car on the way home, realised I hadn't trained yet and thought I'd grab a 20-30min light run before heading to bed... Looked at the current temp and 21.5degrees according to the car. Thought there was something wrong, looked at the temp guage in my garage, yep. 21. Cracking weather at nearly 10pm. Cant beat the weekends weather that just went by (although something tells me 2 years in England is going to hurt come real summer, I struggled a tiny bit in 27 degrees ) Run time!
  7. Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows of any good running clubs - either track or other on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. I know there are Sydney Striders - they sound good - I've done a race with them before in Lane Cove. I have also done about 3 mths with Barry Golding (Manly Running Academy). But there arent too many triathletes - mainly kids surprisingly. I heard about one at the Sydney Institute of Sport )or whatever its called) on Wakehurst Pkwy. Anyone know when these guys run, and how much it is etc? Cheers

    Have you noticed the amount of people running these days in new gear? Have you seen groups of people out jogging? Have you been blinded by the whiteness of many new shoes out there while you run past joggers? Have you noticed the change in the newspaper articles focusing on running and sponsors products? Thats right, its that time of the year were 80 odd thousand sedentary Sydney-siders make the mad dash to Bondi from the City. Be it dressed in team colours, holding hands blocking the path, pushing prams, wearing borat mankini's, or just running in skins from head to toe and arriving at Bondi totally buggered, these participants will be enjoying themselves and getting that little bit fitter than they were a month ago. I hope this spurs people on to continue to exercise throughout the year and maybe Triathlon will pick up memberships from this large crowd. I cant wait, I love this race. Its tough, its fast and there is a pub and Work marque at the end where I tend to have a few too many celebrating ummmm, well who needs a reason. Roll Call Ratdog sub 55, PB 57:58ish
