We were blessed with beautiful weather this weekend and it was great to hear lots of members took the opportunity to get out there and enjoy it!  I loved seeing some familiar faces at the HBF run for a reason and Facebook seemed full of members enjoying fun weekend activities.

* CLUB RIDE: Sorrento Surf Club, 6am : Ride/Run Brick –  Baileys and SJ’s Birthday Parkrun Joondalup 5km double (organised by Hoffy)

Bring your running shoes and a bike lock for this ride, a $2 gold coin, a printout of your park run bar code and some money for coffee afterwards.

Meet at Sorrento Surf Club for 6am depart, short ride to Joondalup with a Hepburn partial loop and then up the coast to Burns Beach road finishing at Neil Hawkins park, the alternate slower ride is to miss the Hepburn partial loop for anyone interested. http://ridewithgps.com/routes/8003730/edit

At Neill Hawkins Park we will do 2 x 5km timed runs from 7am the NSRG Baileys run and at 8am the Joondalup parkrun.

The Northern Suburbs Running Group Baileys run is a handicap 5km run commencing from 7am and you nominated your expected time for 5km for those that are first time participants or off of our handicaps for the rest of us. The event is timed and the cost is a gold coin donation and then there is a sausage sizzle breakfast that follows the parkrun. The timing allows all participants time for a short recovery before the parkrun.

Joondalup parkrun is a free timed weekly 5km as part of the parkrun events around the world. This one is special as it coincides with SJ’s birthday, there will be a number of NCTC members there for her milestone run. Participants new to parkrun will need to complete the free registration with parkrun to have their event times recorded, and everyone will need to bring along a printed copy of your unique personal barcode. The event will start at 8am sharp.


After we will buy coffee from the coffee van and share in the NSRG sausage sizzle or SJ’s breaky, before making the ride back along the coast to the Sorrento Surf Club (quite likely in small groups at a time to suit yourselves).


The junior club ride is departing from SSLSC this Saturday. Please be there at 6.15am for a 6.30am start. Don’t forget to wear your ID wristband and lights.
