Weekly Newsletter August 20th 2012

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on August 20th 2012 covering the current status of the website and events coming up over the next two weeks.

Website Update

There are currently 73 events in the Events to Load list with known dates and 19 events with dates not yet set; this is higher than it was a week ago due to finding a bunch of extra events in the last couple of days, a few of which are at the end of September.

I'll should have all events to the end of the year loaded up by the end of August / beginning of September and then the rest of them by mid September.

If there any events you know of that are not currently listed on the website or the events to load page, feel free to send me an email with the details and ideally a website link to get more information.

Events coming up over the next two weeks

This is a complete list of events coming up over the next two weeks that are known to me. As mentioned above, if there are any you know of not in this list, please let me know.

Note there are also the Parkrun weekly 5K runs on Saturday mornings; these have not yet been loaded into the website until I can make some technical changes behind the scenes. In the meantime you can find out more information from the parkrun website.
