Weekly Newsletter October 1st 2012

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on October 1st 2012 covering the current status of the website and events coming up over the next two weeks.

Website updates

I'm currently working a fairly major re-jig of the way event pages are laid out on the website to make it a lot easier to see information at a glance. For this reason (and it being the the school holidays) there will be no updates to the website this week. I should hopefully roll the changes out early next week, which will include the most requested feature: the ability to search multiple regions at once.

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.
