TV's Update - Tuesday Evening Running Group ('Run Monash') at Monash University - Clayton Campus - Tuesday 16th April 2013

posted 22 Apr 2013, 00:30 by Monash Running
Hi All

As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next week, 23rd April – 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 16th April 2013

No time trials this week, but one of our more solid – and popular – sessions.

We did a Mona Fartlek session on Tuesday – a really solid & testing workout – and you all handled it very well – great work !

And no attendance records this week – but still 65 were there – a terrific turnout. The testing time is yet to come – cold/wet nights !

We welcomed just 2 new squad members this week – Michael Palmer & James Hepburn – a warm welcome to you both.

Thanks again to those of you who took the small trouble to send an apology for being unable to attend the session.

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

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park – 20th April - All welcome !

Our usual weekly Hill session will be on Saturday next, 20th April 2013 - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there. And as far as I know, once again there’s not much on to keep you away.

We’ll 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.

We enjoyed a great turnout again this week – no records – but close ! It was great to welcome Miriam Wan & Sam Dwyer to our fantastic squad, & nice to have Chynea back.

See lots of you again next Saturday morning I hope .

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.
