Recent updates
To find out what's been recently updated, check the website homepage regularly. I include in this newsletter a list of the more important updates such as date changes, cancellations or late additions to the calendar. Late additions are events which will take place in the next two to three weeks and have only just been added to the website.

Date changes/corrections
- Great Strides in Sydney has changed from August 3rd to October 26th
- Dinner Plain Mile High Trail Run is now part of the Dinner Plain Mountain Running Festival and has shifted back to November 23rd, with the new Great Alpine Road Half Marathon taking place the previous day (November 22nd) as part of the festival.

- Wimmera Grampians Heart Challenge in Stawell, Victoria on August 10th has been cancelled due to lack of numbers
- Darby River Half Marathon scheduled for February 22nd is no longer on the Running Wild Victoria calendar, so have removed this from the website

- Koah Road Race which was scheduled for last Sunday has been postponed; a new date will be notified later this year
- Greater Springfield Run for Life is going ahead in "Spring 2014" but there is no longer a date listed on the event website (was originally September 13th, then October 19th) so have removed the October 19th date from the calendar

== Until next week ==

Have a great running week!
