In a repeat from last week, we’ve had very strong numbers participating with most taking advantage of the winter sun. It seems that we’ve stumbled on a modus operandi that is attractive to more than our hard-core participants that get out at any time, in any conditions. Your co-ordinators are still a bit rusty though as a number of you reported difficulties in locating the Start beep and some noticed the incorrectly marked street name. Thanks Stuart and others for letting me know that the Start beep was near the statue, with the Finish beep near the BBQ.

This week the course operates from South Geelong Primary School (see map attached) and will open on MapRun from 8am Wednesday 24/6. We’ve triple checked the Start  / Finish location which is at the entrance gate on Kilgour St. Be mindful that the school grounds are out of bounds and that there are no public toilets in close proximity.

You know the deal – check the weather forecast , then choose a time that suits you – ensuring that you follow all of the isolation and distancing rules that apply – and enjoy a walk or run with a navigational challenge. Remember to charge your phone and take a hard copy of the map with you.

On MapRun look for the map under Events List/Victoria/Geelong/Winter/This Week. Choose what grade you want to do (A, B, C or PW) then make sure that you get your Start beep before moving off.

This is a totally flexible arrangement. Have a run one day and a walk the next. Try back to back runs. Have a midnight walk then a mid-afternoon run. The choice is all yours. There won’t be any series winners but if you want to check out what others have done, you can see tracks and scores on MapRun.

Don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have any issues.

Go for it !! Embrace the opportunity.
