Saturday Runners - This Weeks Run
THIS WEEK'S RUN:
The first real frosty morning this year greeted our Saturday Runners in 2 locations last Saturday - but that sunrise was spectacular!
Burnside Park and Avonside were the 2 choices and we had good representation at both. Many of you took the opportunity to have a run on the ASB Christchurch Marathon course before your event in 2 weeks time just to get a feel for the surface so there are no surprises on race day ;o)
This Saturday we are all at the same location and everyone has a 7.30am start!
