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. Like us there to get all of the latest information

 

Our email address for communication is smcroadraceseries@gmail.com So if you have any questions, ask!

 

 

See you all at Race 1 on the 21st October!

Brilliant, I plan to make to 6 of them. Seems like great value... nice and early on a Sunday, online registration and only a little over an hours drive each way. I like it.

The first race was a real buzz.

 

We made some sweeping changes to the who SMC road race series and it seems the athletes loved them all.

 

It was nice to meet MountainMan and finally get to put a face to the name. Sorry I couldnt chat for long as I had so much to do to ensure things went as planned.

 

Looking forward to next month on the 18th November.
