Welcome everybody to our Club, where the journey for the season will take us over courses ranging from 5 km up to the marathon of 42.2 km.
The Club would like to recognise the traditional owners of this land it competes on over the season.
The Club’s programme will consist of 27 weekly races from March 11 through to September 16, with a break for the Launceston Running Festival on June 3. The popular trail runs are again included with events at Hellyer College, Penguin, Spreyton and Fernglade.
Sponsorship from the many business houses and firms is greatly appreciated and I urge all members to reward them with your patronage.
This year runners will be required to wear a timing chip on their ankle or shoe, as we bring into play the new timing scheme and runners will still be required to wear race numbers on their front for all races.
During the season if you are not competing, your assistance would be greatly appreciated as an official on the course, so if you can help us please contact one of the committee members.
As most of our races are on public roads and footpaths, I urge all members to use extreme care and obey all road rules and respect other users.
Welcome again to all members to our 2018 season, and I wish all competitors a very successful and enjoyable year.
Barry Ling O.A.M.
