Races in Term 2
For those of you interested in doing some races during Term 2, here are some ideas:
Parkrun Curl Curl Every Saturday 5km paths http://www.parkrun.com.au/curlcurl/
A free, timed 5km run every week in multiple locations around the world. Our local event is Curl Curl. Friendly, inclusive atmosphere. Sign up online and turn up on the day. Strongly recommended.
Manly Scenic Fun Run Manly 22 May 10km/ 5km/ 2km road http://www.manlyfunrun.org
Local race with 2, 5 and 10km options.
Soft Sand Classic Manly 13 June 1.6km sand http://manlylsc.com/manly-lsc/club-calendar/?month=6&yr=2016
This has been off the calendar for a few years and is back this year. It looks like there is a 1 mile race which could be fun – though it is always tough on the sand.
