The calendar for BBR Sunday runs for 2016 has been updated and is now been posted on the website here. Unless otherwise stated, all runs commence from Warrina St promptly at 7:15am.
For each Sunday run there is a short course and a long course. Generally the short course follows the same directions as the longer course, except with an earlier return/diversion point.
Maps of virtually all runs have now been updated and can be found on the website under the Maps menu, or by following the links on the calendar page. For those who plan for an extended run further than the 10km Sunday run, a “hydration and ablutions” map, which lists locations of water and public toilets, has been prepared.
As well as the usual ten handicap races from February to November, in 2016 we have:
- two Beep Tests (in March and November),
- King of the Mountain in August,
- Urban Rogaine in October,
- the all-new Bush Navigation Challenge, and
- four social events (one per quarter).
We have endeavoured to keep these events outside of the school holidays to ensure as many people can attend as possible. Note that the April handicap has been moved to the second Sunday in April, to avoid a clash with the Galston Gut Buster race (April 3).
More details on the Bush Navigation Challenge will follow closer to the date. This is an off-road course and compass skills are required. The course and instructions come courtesy of Jeff Hodder.
