Unfortunately this event has been postponed to a date to be confirmed later this year. We sincerely apologise for this. The permit has not been received by MSC and unfortunately when the 2014 calender of events was put together last year, it was overlooked that this date clashes with the Townsville Running Festival, a major NQ event, which many of our regular volunteers & members are running in.
We apologise for the late notice and the committee will discuss a revised date at the next meeting on Aug 13.
Good morning runners! Please meet at the bike trails carpark on MacGregor Road, Smithfield a little before 4pm this afternoon. To get there, take MacGregor Road towards James Cook University. Drive past the University entrance and continue less than 1km along the road. Do not drive into the university. If you reach AJ Hackett Bungy you have gone too far! See you there! Dave
Are you a road runner who would like an easy introduction to trail running? Need to blow away some cobwebs after a period of enforced or voluntary activity? Maybe you just want to run FAST! This shorter trail race could be for you! Starting at the same place as the Poker Race earlier in the year (adjacent the mountain bike trails behind James Cook University, Smithfield) this race is run on dirt trails through local bushland with a little hill challenge thrown in. Please be at the start area to check in by 4pm so the race can be started at 4.30pm sharp. The light will be fading in the latter stages of the race and I’d like runners back before dark! I would appreciate a little help with this event; help with check-in before the race start and help with timing and recording at the finish. If you have a little time to offer on Saturday afternoon please let me know via email at email@example.com or give me a call on 0459020091 Safe running everyone. Dave OBrien
What a great event, good course, inspiring runners, fabulous weather, and it’s local. Some smashing times were run and have set the course records high. Many thanks to our smiling and happy volunteers who made the event possible. Click HERE for race results. Next year with a little more hill training and speed work maybe you can do a new PB?
