Thursday Practice for Club Champs on Sunday - 3 or 4 1km Sprints on the rail trail. (Don't go too mad, just helps gauge how far a km is!) The usual runs/walks will also be happening.


Saturday:

Parkrun is on. Andrew is the Run Director at Uni this week. You'll get a better finishing position, there's two lakes at Uni (twice as many as the competition), it's flatter that Cambridge PR and Jack's Cafe has some pretty tasty eats, so if you haven't done it yet head on over on Saturday (and wear pink). Don't forget the coffee and muffin discount


Sunday 1km Club Champs Our first event in our Club Champs Series! Meet at Korkori park (near Rototuna High) for an 8.45am briefing. Those wanting to run more than a km can carry on round the area. Refreshments at Alfies afterwards.


Save the date Thursday 26th May Please note the last Thursday of the month is a very special night - it's the first of our monthly cake nights, we will also announce Member of the Month, have the coffee voucher prize draw and Trek N Travel will be around to showcase some winter accessories!


Rugby Volunteers are still needed for the Chiefs Rugby games on Saturday from approximately 2.30pm to 6pm. Let Sarah Jenkins know if you can assist for either of these two events. These events are busy but fun and a great chance to get to know your club mates, as well as help generate funds for the club!


Covid Just a reminder that it's still around so if you have cold/flu symptoms please stay home and put your feet up. Also if you have covid and need help with anything please shout out, there's a lot of us who can help out with whatever you need, from coffee to stitch cutters, to get through it.


That's it for this week.
