Weekly Newsletter December 3rd 2012

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on December 3rd 2012 covering an update on the website progress, new competition and events coming up over the next two weeks.

Website progress update

The last week saw 27 new events added to the website, 20 existing listings with dates added for 2013 and 7 other miscellaneous updates covering minor corrections, online entry open, etc.

At the end of the week, we hit a significant milestone: we now have more future running and walking events in Australia listed than any other event list website. To celebrate, we're giving away another copy of Barefoot Running, The Movie (see below for more details).

This still doesn't mean the calendar for next year is complete enough for my liking, and I am currently working my way through several clubs' calendars of events for 2013 and adding new listings and updating dates for existing listings. I'm hoping to get most of the way through this over the course of this week to help you plan your running/walking year for 2013.

The photo at the top of this newsletter shows a bunch of the club calendar lists I am working my way through at the present time.

Barefoot Running, The Movie competition

To celebrate this milestone, we're giving away another copy of the Barefoot Running Movie on DVD. This competition runs until Sunday December 16th 2012 at 11:59pm (eastern time) and the winner will be drawn at random the following day. Enter competition.
