Mt Mee Classic

April 14, 2016

On Sunday 10 April, I ran in the 19k event as part of the Mt Meet Classic. I have moved out to Daybook late last year so thought I had better run my ‘local’ race.  It was a tough race, with a lot more walking that I had anticipated.  The first 10k was enjoyable, even though it was up and down.  But the final 9k felt like a continuous climb to the finish, with the sun blaring down on us.

One of my running buddies ran the 44k – her first marathon, first ultra-marathon and first trail race all in one.  It was great to see her out on the course and then cheer her across the finish line.

Now time to consult the race calendar and work out whats next…….

The 2016 GCM Training Plan is ready for download. The plan builds up to the key focal point for many Striders. The SE QLD running calendar is rapidly changing and some key races have shifted to much later. This has provided a few complications for 2016 as we can no longer rely on the usual schedule of races to build up from 10km, to Half and then to marathon. Read more…

1. Distance category awards criteria
– Awards to the quickest male and female 10km, 21km and 42km race anywhere.
2. Club Champs criteria
– The format is as follows:
1. There are 14 races to choose from
2. 5 of the 14 will count towards your club champs points tally
3. 10 points for a distance category win with points reducing by 2 for each subsequent placing (e.g. first male and female in the same event earn the same points)
1. You need to be a financial member of South Pine Striders at the time of the event for the points to count.
2. The 14 races is not to encourage you to do all 14 but rather provide options and time for recovery. Choose wisely.
3. No complaints will be entertained.
4. You need to run in your own registered number.
5. You should run in Striders club kit to run faster.
6. Your safety and health and that of other competitors is of primary importance.
