150 Miles Leaderboard
RUN A MILE TO CELEBRATE OUR CLUB'S 150th BIRTHDAY
We have now tweaked the 150
Miles Leaderboard project - attached is a summary of the small print and how
it will work as one of the key events to celebrate 150 years of the Club.
More details will be sent to
members shortly and posted at the clubhouse and Norman Park. This is for
everyone in the club, young or old; so do put 7 April in your diaries
when we encourage ALL members to join us at Norman Park for at least 5 to 12
minutes to run a mile to get this event under way. Starting time 11.00am.
We want to see marathon
runners, park runners, walkers, throwers, jumpers, Wednesday nighters, Vice
Presidents and Past Presidents as well as Norman Park season ticket holders!
