Weekly Newsletter June 4th 2013

This is a copy of the weekly newsletter from the Australian Running Calendar sent by email on June 4th 2013 covering interesting articles, recently updated event pages, and events coming up over the next two weeks.

== Interesting articles ==

The Fitness Show in Perth is a localised version of the highly successful Australian Fitness & Health Expo. Find out more information at the Fitness Show website.

We've got a new competition starting next week for the "It's Not That Hard" DVD documentary about how to run a 100km trail ultramarathon. I'll be watching it myself tomorrow night, and there's a great trailer for it to view online here.

Lisa Palmer at Slate talks with Scott Jurek and asks "What are extreme runners thinking?"

The Guardian's Running Blog lists 10 commandments of running etiquette which include "thou shalt nod hello" and "thou shalt not flaunt your phlegm".

== Recently updated event pages ==

It was a big week of updates in the last week so there's too many to list here. Check the website homepage for updates made in the last few days. There's a brief summary of the update and you can click to view the event listing.

Notably, the Manly Soft Sand Classic which was to be held this weekend has had to be postponed until November; and the first race in the Sydney Trailrunning Series: Kuringai Wildflower Gardens which was also scheduled for this weekend has had to be postponed until June 23rd.
