Weekly Newsletter September 18th 2012

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on September 18th 2012 covering the current status of the website and events coming up over the next two weeks.

News and interesting articles

There is a very long but interesting article at The New Yorker about Kip Litton who appears to have gone to extraordinary lengths to fake marathon results, including inventing fictional marathons with websites and full results of other competitors. Read article.

Website update

I added 29 new event listings and updated 19 last week; with the exception of an event just found today in October which is not yet loaded, the list of all known events is now loaded up until December 1st. I'm sure I'll find plenty of additional events in November in the next two or three weeks....

As usual, 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

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.
