This year's club relays are going to be the fastest event on the calendar.
1) New map -- Bush map on Wivenhoe Dam with subtle erosion and rock features.
2) Fast map -- yep, this map can fly. 6min/k for the faster runners and the only thing that is going to slow you down is the beach run.
3) A map where hot weather is good because you can cool down staight after your run with a swim nearby.
4) Turbo charged relay format.
5) And a few other surprises (which if I told you, they wouldnt be surprises).
There is an optional lunch being made available to support Range Runners which you pay for on the day (extra to entry fees but at reasonable prices like the catering at the QLD State champs). There will be a sausage sizzle with coleslaw and onions, (FRESH gluten free bread available), slice/muffin/cake and tea, coffee, flavoured milk and soft drinks. Please indicate number of sausages you intend to buy when you enter.
Straight after the event OQ will be presenting the annual awards including the OY and Zonta awards.
How to enter
Choose the course you wish to run. You will only run this course on the day and be placed in a team accordingly by your club. Note UG, TF, EN and RR are paying your entry fees so no reason not to attend. The event format is akin to a traditional bush relay with a twist. Note courses are fast and navigation is fun rather than difficult.
The Moderate course is suitable for beginner adults or kids doing easy or moderate courses already unaccompanied (it is long but flat and safe with the lake beside as a handrail for a lot of the course) (suitable for 11,12,13,14 year olds depending upon experience and new adults). Experienced 13 or 14 year olds already regularly running moderate courses are advised to choose Hard 2.
The Very Easy course is for young juniors and may be shadowed (suitable for those 11 and under or beginners older). They will have their own mass start event before the main relay so cheer them in.
LUNCH -- SUPER DUPER IMPORTANT. TO ASSIST RANGER RUNNERS CATERING WHEN CHOOSING YOUR EVENT FEE PLEASE INDICATE WHETHER YOU INTEND TO BUY LUNCH ON THE DAY FROM RANGE RUNNERS. THIS IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BUT OPTIONAL. IT IS EXTRA TO YOUR EVENT FEES BUT WE ASK YOU CHOOSE ACCORDINGLY TO ASSIST IN PREPARING CATERING. THERE IS LOVELY SWIMMING RIGHT NEAR THE EVENT AND PLEASE ENJOY A LUNCH WHILST BRIEFLY WAITING FOR PRESENTATION OF OQ PRIZES AND CLUB RELAY CHAMPION.
