Thinking of New Year Goals?
Tentatively 25th September 2021 is the Blue Lake Challenge https://www.bluelake24hr.com. As many 5.5km laps as you want to do in 24hours, so something for everyone (some people only run one lap). Al is really keen for the club to go to this event, so Al’s challenge to you is (a) put this in your diary, and (b) set yourself a personal goal for this event (be it 5.5km or 160km). You don’t have to tell anyone your distance, it doesn’t cost anything to enter, and it will be great fun supporting each other. Let Al know if you are interested and we will try to secure a spot to put up a club gazebo as our aid station for each lap. Rotorua has lots of other things to do to make it a fun weekend for everyone.
