Weekly Newsletter December 10th 2012

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on December 10th 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 11 new event listings added to the website, 19 existing listings with dates added for 2013 and 14 other miscellaneous updates covering minor corrections, online entry open, etc.

I am still working my way through several clubs' calendars of events for 2013 and adding new listings and updating dates for existing listings. This is turning out to be fairly time consuming but I'm slowly getting there...

Barefoot Running, The Movie competition

We're giving away a 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.

Please note there's also Parkrun across the country every Saturday morning. I will finally have this listed on the website this week. See the Parkrun website for more information.
