Sydney Marathon Clinic Road Race Series 2012-13 New course. New on day presentation format New multi race bib timing tags with name on bib. With the days counting down and the interest increasing it is time to start a fresh 2012-13 thread where all questions can get asked, hopefully answered and the sledging can continue. All previous participants would by now have seen the email sent by Nic. I will just go through the key changes for the series here. If in doubt about anything, or for more detail on the below, please check our website. The first race is on Sunday 21st October 2012....this comprises a 5km, 10km and 21.1km. Every month there will be a 5km, 10km and 21.1km, plus an additional 30km on selected months a Standard Marathon in May. Membership is now an optional choice. You get the same race entry prices as a non member, but members get the benefits such as full club membership rights, free SMC singlet, R4YL subscription, 25% discount to M7 marathon etc. Members can also choose to indicate availability to volunteer. We will continue to park and use ablution facilities at Rosford Reserve, and walk across to our new start location. late entrants will register at the start. The video of the new course is found . Accurate course markings, aid stations and course marshals on course which is 'non traffic'. If you register here before 10th October you can opt to have your name printed on your bib. Online entry is encouraged and is $10 cheaper and online entries go into lucky draw for prizes, including Mizuno running shoes. Prices range from <$7 for a 5km to <$14 for a HM...online entrants have option to purchase 3, 6 o 9 races as well as single month entries. Only single races can be purchased on the day. If you wish to purchase 3, 6 or 9 races, this must be done online. If you do not have a credit card, ask a friend to help out or you could purchase a pre-paid 'credit' card. If you're still stuck, get in touch with us. Children 12 and under may enter the 5km event for $2 per race. This year we will be using the electronic 'ring bib tags' stuck to the back of your bib. This is yours to keep for the entire series. Once you have registered for multi races then simply come back to the start line for the next race. Casual 'race day only' entrants will also keep the bib/tag and if they do come back to any other race in series, they simply need to pay for it- no entry form to fill in- and join the start line. As easy as that. So keep your bib as a reminder to come back to another race. Free refreshments supplied at the end of each race inc. BBQ or sandwich platters...BBQ volunteers wanted. Presentations will occur at the finish line at approximately 9:10am. Check the new start times which are designed to stagger races such that almost all people are there at 9:10am There is an early start option for those who deem themselves as slower runners in the long race. Again this is simply to get us to clear course earlier and have more people back by 9:10am For those on Facebook, this is our Facebook page.

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
