Greetings KRew


Volunteering Opportunities at Sydney Marathon. We are still looking for some more volunteers, so far we have 4 which is awesome but wee need a few more!  


As all of us know, races like Sydney Marathon can only happen when good folks volunteer. This year I know that we have a huge number of KRs racing in festival at the various distances that are on offer. However, I’m hoping that we can continue the KR tradition of providing some volunteers for the event. As you can see from the post at the top of the FB page, our awesome volunteer coordinator Helen has again secured the best jobs on the day but needs folks to fill in those positions as marshals for the start of the race.


So if you are not running that day, or some people you know are not running, then please I encourage you to put your hand up and let Helen know that you can help out. 


Tuesday Speed Sessions. Most of you know we hold a speed session on Tuesday nights at Gore Hill Oval starting at 6:30pm. It is great to see about 14 or 15 people coming each week to work on their speed and push themselves on the various sessions that we do. All are welcome and for more details please message me directly. 


Upcoming Events


Sydney Half held at Sydney Olympic Park on 3 Sep 23. If you are looking for a final race before the marathon, then this is a good way to get the legs turning over on a flat fast course. I’ve done it a few times and always enjoyed the atmosphere of encouraging supporters and other runners.


Sydney Running Festival in on Sunday 17 Sep 23 which is only about 4 weeks away! The organisers are trying to get our race to qualify as an Abbot World Marathon and join the likes of New York, Berlin and Boston as a truly world class event. To do this they are wanting to get 15,000 people to finish the race, and so it will be the biggest marathon event ever held in Australia and possibly the southern hemisphere, so don’t miss out and sign up today.


If you are bringing bags tonight, this week Mark will be there with his car to hold them whilst you run.  (But please pick them up as soon as we have finished the run!) Thank you, Mark, much appreciated!!


That’s a wrap for this week; remember to take care of yourself and others.


Keep running @everyone and happy trails,
