Weekly Newsletter August 27th 2012

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on August 27th 2012 covering the current status of the website and events coming up over the next two weeks.

Website Update

Last week I added 25 events to the calendar and another 5 today, and have managed to drop the number of events in the Events to Load list from 73 to 52 with known dates (despite adding 9 to it over the course of the week); there remain 19 events with dates not yet set.

The Australian Running Calendar currently has the most comprehensive list of running and walking events in Australia up to November 10th and we're continuing to add about 25 events a week.

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.
