This week’s run is a BUAC club run:- ‘Notley’s Noodle’.
Invented by President Ross a year or 2 back this has an 11.5km long course and 4.5km medium course with the usual 1km & 500m dashes.
Great tune up event for anyone doing the City to Surf in a few weeks and mostly quite sheltered from winds.

To get there:
The run is the Whipstick. Based at Notleys Reserve – you can Google Maps your way there if you want.
Take the Eaglehawk Epsom Road and just on the Epsom side of Neangar golf course turn north onto the bitumen Eaglehawk-Neilborough Road. Follow this for 3 or 4 km’s (will turn into gravel) then following the signs veer right into Millers Flat Road and travel for another km or 2.

Usual start times and arrangements apply subject to the President who is in charge of setting up the timing system this week. Long race kick off should be at 2pm and shortly after 3pm the 1km followed by the 4km. Bring your leg tags, afternoon tea and few thermoses. On the subject of afternoon tea we will delay it a couple of minutes later than usual so the gear and trailer is packed before we start and heads up we need a few more members to get the hang of running the timing system ‘going forward’.

Last week

Harriers Invitation well supported by BUAC we must have been half the numbers and prizewinners. Well done to all who ran.

This week

All the usual suspects will be battling the gales in the AV 15km run around Lake Wendouree. Great work.
Rowe’s, Giffins & Lonsdale’s are tackling various distances at Peaks & Trails with trail big dogs Fiona Dangerfield & Justine Rowe stepping out in the 22km.
