Weekly Newsletter November 13th 2012

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on November 13th 2012 covering an update on the website progress, competitions, advertising opportunities, and events coming up over the next two weeks.

Website progress update

Getting through the "Events to Load" list has been a bit slow over the last few weeks but I'll be back to trying to get 5 to 10 events loaded from it each day over the next couple of weeks to get through it by the end of November to help you with planning which races you want to enter in 2013.

I also have a number of draft calendars from running clubs and event organisers to check through and add dates for next year. Once this is done by mid-December I'll have the most comprehensive list of upcoming running events for Australia.

Win a Running T-Shirt From Cycology

Go in the draw to win a running t-shirt from Cycology. The competition runs until Sunday November 18th (that's this Sunday) with the winner drawn on Monday. The winner will be mailed the selected shirt directly from Cycology. Enter competition. These are really nice shirts; I received mine last week and it's made from nice cotton and the designs are excellent.
