This week – Tuesday 4th June 2013

posted 9 Jun 2013, 01:06 by Monash Running
Hi All,

As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next week, 11th June – 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 4th June 2013

Weather was again a bit threatening – but, as usual, it turned out to be excellent for running & we enjoyed a great session

Big numbers again this week this week, considering exams/study priorities etc (& cold weather that puts a few of) – with 68 in attendance.

This week we did a session of ‘straights’ (100m ‘on’/ 100m ‘off’) – an ideal work out for a cool night. Congrats to all of you for handling it so sensibly & well.

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 squad member this week – Bianca Hepburn - we hope you enjoyed the experience Bianca will be back.

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.

Time Trial Number 3 – is still scheduled for just a few weeks time - Tuesday 25th June, so please note your diaries.

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

Our usual weekly Hill session will be on Saturday next, 8th June 2013, at Jells Park. Even though I can’t make it (I’ll be at Brimbank Park, Keilor for some cross country racing events) – the session will be in the most capable hands this week of Michael & James.

We had a great turnout last Saturday despite the rain & flooding at Jells park – congrats to all of you who made it - & enjoyed the session

Meet this week at the usual spot on Saturday, 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 15th!

Monash Uni ‘Respectful Communities Initiative’

If you have concerns about your own safety – or the safety of others – contact the Monash University Safer Communities Unit – 9905 1599 or email

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.
