Hi Team,

We are just on 11 days away from our first 3000m race night and we need you to register so I can help get the grading done for the races.

Step 1 – Fill out the google docs form – – it takes 30 seconds.

Step 2 – show up on Tuesday November 20th at the athletics track for your race

If you could please complete the google docs form i’d be really appreciative and it will help me get a more organised event for everyone which equals more enjoyment and also will give me a chance to run on the night which i’d dearly love to do as well.

Let’s see how many people we can have registered in the next 48 hours, we are currently at 13, but based on our last handicap i’m expecting around 50+, so let’s see who’s keen to come and run a 3km track PB.



SRC 2018 Presentation and Awards Dinner

Facebook event page

With presentation night coming up on Saturday, it’ll be a great night to reflect on the year and enjoy each other’s company. What have been your highlights for yourself or someone else this year?

Recently I was chatting with Nadine about how far the club has come in the last 2 years. 2 years ago Presentation night was at the clubrooms and attendance was in the twenties. We were engaged in regular meetings with Tim Crosby from Athletics Victoria on how to rebuild the club.

We took his advice and now we have a new website, new logos, new running tops and apparel, and we also have a coach. Coach Chris has been one of the biggest factors for improving the direction of the club. Two years ago 20 runners turning up to a handicap would have been considered good. Last week we had 52 turn up to the 800 mtr handicap at the athletics track.

A lot of credit for the turn around in the last two years must also go to Nadine Edwards, Trevor Dainton, Mathieu Ryan, Norah Armstrong & Melanie McAuliffe. All working away to create a better club and running environment.

On the last count for presentation night 2018 our numbers were 69 in total. 45 adults. 17 school aged and 7 that are 5 y.o. and under.

Four Vines Running Festival

Feeling stoked after being 2nd place female and 1st place veteran female in today’s 5km event at the inaugural Four Vines Running Festival. Great to share today with my Shepparton Runners Club buddies

Race report by Sam Daniel.

We arrived nice and early at the historic Tahbilk winery for the 4 Vines Fun Run last Sunday. Checked in, picked up my bibs, and went to check the conditions of the porta-loos. Just before the 10k race briefing, there was an announcement concerning a 10 minute delay, something to do with a track blockage, maybe a snake. I enquired if the 5k race would follow suit in the delay, which I was also running, with a positive reply. Off we ran at the starting line, through the extensive vineyards and around the very pretty wetlands, tracks, bridges and a bit of bush. Having only an hour between the two start times, I passed through the 10k mark at 51.33, but the trail still had another 800 metres to run. A quick glass of prosecco at the finish line, a change of tee shirt (and bib), and off onto the 5 k run with Tara and Mirium. We took it gentle and enjoyed the scenery, what an enjoyable day for a run (or two).

L to R Mairead MacDougall 21 km 2:44:15. Sam Daniel 10 km 54:50  & 5 km 43:58. Steven Trevaskis 10 km 1:13:11. Christina Bassani 1:09:48 Nadine Edwards 5 km 25:58. Tara Daniel 5 km 43:58

NOTE – All distances were long by up to 800 mtrs for the 10 km run.

On this course, it would be difficult to create a course that finished at a km mark. This was a fantastic event for a first effort. They had a few issues that need addressing. But once ironed out, this could be one of the best regional running festivals in Victoria. If you want to try something different from bitumen but don’t want to leap into trails, this could be the event for you. Unbelievably picturesque entrance and race compound. We were greeted with sunshine filtering through the trees on the lawn area where we had lunch after our run through the winery.
