We will be hosting a fun Christmas breakfast for all friends and family in Brisbane on Saturday 22nd December and the Coast on Sunday 23rd December. The breakfast will start with an optional 30 minute run session which everyone is welcome to attend including kids on scooters/bikes that want to come along with Mum or Dad. Babies in prams also welcome!
In Brisbane the run will start at 6:30am meeting at the Tuesday run location opposite Garage coffee shop and finish by the South Bank lagoon. On the Coast the meeting point is 6:30am at the Southport Broadwater swim enclosure.
Breakfast is a bring a plate to share occasion and we always have a few keen chefs trying to outdo each other with their baked goods. For family members coming down to join in breakfast without the run we will be finished the run around 7:00am.
Also note that this week’s Thursday morning run with Tim Franklin will start at Southbank and not Kangaroo Point as normal. Meet at the same location as our Tuesday morning runs.
Gold Coast Training Sessions
With the upcoming closure of the Southport Pool we have taken this opportunity to make some amendments to the training calendar on the Gold Coast. We will no longer be running lunch squads on the Coast and the weekly schedule will now be as follows:
- Monday 6pm swim;
- Tuesday 6pm run;
- Wednesday 6pm swim;
- Thursday 5:45pm windtrainer;
- Saturday am various sessions; and
- Sunday am cycle.
We apologise to those that enjoyed the lunchtime training sessions but the situation is out of our control. For the start of the year we will still be at the Southport Pool and will keep all athletes informed of any changes as soon as a new swim location is confirmed.
Please note the last lunch squad will be held tomorrow Tuesday 18th December.
