Weekly Newsletter March 25th 2013

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on March 25th 2013 covering interesting articles, recently updated event pages, and events coming up over the next two weeks.

== Interesting articles ==

I ran the 100km race at the Tarawera Ultramarathon in New Zealand on Saturday March 16th in 14:52; the last 17km were tough with a considerable uphill struggle in the dark that never seemed to end. I've written a fairly long post about my experience which you can read here over on my New Zealand Running Calendar website.

TrailRunnerMag has an interesting article which looks at prize money in running, specifically road running where the money is, versus trail running where it isn't. It's quite a thought provoking piece and the comments on the page are worth a read too. Read the article here.

If you are looking at entering the Adidas Auckland Marathon in New Zealand this year, you are able to pre-register on the event website as an international / out of town participant. Regular registration opens on April 3rd; the half marathon sells out in days and the full marathon in weeks so pre-registering this week is a good idea if you want to run. Find out more here.

== Recently updated event pages ==

There have been over 30 updates in the last week with new event listings being added, new dates for existing listings added, links to online entry and PDF entry forms added. Keep checking the website homepage for recent updated events; it shows what's been updated such as adding new event dates, online entry, event corrections, etc.
