THURSDAY: This week it's a speed session around the lake with 4 minute sprints and 2 minute recovery walk or jog (so those doing Hobbiton can do a lighter session).
There will also be the usual walks and longer runs.
Meet at 5:30 inside the club.
Don't forget your high viz clothing and/or lights.
A bunch of us will be heading to Hobbiton for 11km or 21km around the shire! Vicky will attempt to get a group photo before the off (and maybe in the pub afterwards).
We will also be heading to parkrun - no long weekend and an event may mean the majority of us can be found at Hamilton Lake or the University.
A post Hobbiton recovery run/walk to the Blue Springs - Te Waihou River Walk. Meet at the Leslie Road carpark at 9am. Leslie Road, Putāruru 3483, New Zealand. Bring your camera as it really is stunning! A relatively easy out and back course (4.7km each way) on a mixed trail - bring appropriate footwear. Cafe at Tirau on the way home.
Volunteers are needed for the Chiefs Rugby games on:
Saturday 7th May from approximately 5pm until 9pm
Saturday 21st May 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!
