Weekly Newsletter January 15th 2014

This week's newsletter on January 15th 2014 has interesting running articles, late event additions and important event updates and corrections.

Welcome to the second newsletter for 2014. I'm still working my way through the backlog of events to update and have added and updated 110 event listings in the past week; I should have the backlog completed by the end of this week.

Continue to check the website homepage regularly for updates as there will continue to be a lot over the next few days.

Brendan Davies on the Narrabeen Allnighter 12h
The Narrabeen Allnighter started Bredan Davies' ultra career when it still had a 100km event. This year he went back intending to just run 100km during the 12 hour event in order to qualify to represent Australia but ended up running for the full 12 hours anyway. Read his story here.
