Tuesday Evening Running Squad/’Run Monash’ at Monash Clayton Update

Hi All

A FINAL REMINDER – about the Emer Casey Fun Run on the Monash Clayton Campus this coming Sunday morning – 26th May - at 10am.

Details below – I would really like to see as many of you as possible support this event please – it is for a great cause.

As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next week, 28th May – ready to run at 6pm

In 2013, as usual, we’re located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & parking is very handy - enter from Ring Road East & go around to the Baseball field along the road around the back (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1. You can park at the rear of the pavilion if space – or on the dirt road above if you like

This week – Tuesday 21st May 2013

What a fantastic night we enjoyed for running on Tuesday - if you missed out you’re unlucky!

Close to record numbers this week – Len & I thought it looked big – and my count confirmed that – 84 – just 4 short of our all-time record attendance on April 9th.

Thanks to those of you who did me the courtesy of advising if you couldn’t make it – this demonstrates more than just a casual commitment to Run Monash.

It was a terrific night for running so we made the best of it by doing an old favourite – a ‘Mona Fartlek’ session. Really well handled by all of you – well done.

Just on attendance – would you all please make a special effort to mark off/highlight your name on my attendance list each week as that’s the only way I have of keeping track of attendance numbers.

We welcomed another 2 more new squad members this week – Andrew Van Agtmaal & Emma Phillips - - we hope you both enjoyed the experience will be back. Andrew joined his twin brother Nick on our squad – and they are our first set of (identical) twins !

It was great to have Alison rejoin us after a break.

Time Trial Number 3 – is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday 25th June, so please note your diaries now.

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

Our usual weekly Hill session will be on Saturday next, 25th May 2013, at Jells Park. Even though, once again, I can’t make it (I’ll be at Ballarat for some road racing events) – the session will be in the most capable hands this week of Dennis, Dilpreet, & Daniel.

It was great to hear of the big turnout last Saturday with Cass running the session – thanks Cass for your great leadership.

Meet at the usual spot, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP (please try to be on time) - out the front of the cafe – ‘Madeline’s’. Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.

I expect to be back on board for this session on Saturday week - June 1st! .

Some News

Great Ocean Road Marathon weekend 18/19 May 2013

A number of our Run Monash members participated in one at the events on the weekend – but not many results to hand yet. One thing I can report is that the winning (4 person) team in the 14k event were all Run Monash members- Amelia Aslanides, Stacey Bulger, Simon Bowly & Shaun Lenehan. See lots of great photos on our ‘Run Monash’ facebook.

Our Name!

Officially we are the ‘Monash University Running Group’ – but in normal conversation referred to as ‘Run Monash’.

Running Group Waiver Form – A message from Monash Sport.

All participants of the Running Group are required by the University to complete a waiver form. This form has a number of purposes. It firstly acts as a waiver to advise participants of the potential risks involved in the activity. It will also provide Monash Sport with valuable statistics in regards to who (student/staff/alumni/community) is participating in this activity. The University is requesting information on who is participating in all of Monash Sport's programs so this will assist Monash Sport in their reporting back to the University about student, staff and alumni usage. The form also provides an emergency contact point should anything happen. Hopefully we never need to use this information though!

If you haven't completed a form already, please click on the link below to download a form, complete it and bring it to the next session and give it to me /TV.

I will have spare blank forms with me of a Tuesday evening. Thanks to the great many of you who have completed & returned forms to me already.
