SRC says goodbye to Nathan.
Tonight we did our final Tuesday quality session with Nathan Stoate as he makes the move down to Geelong to take the next step in his running journey. We feel very fortunate to have had you as a member, as phenomenally talented as you are, you’re also a wonderful young man and we will miss your presence at training and parkrun on Saturdays. From all your friends at SRC we wish you the very best with the next chapters in your journey. You’ll always be welcome anytime at SRC, the purple and gold army will be following you every step of the way

SRC September 4.9 km handicap
Today’s net results from the handicap. Forgive the less than stellar excel skills! Well done again to everyone who participated, we hope to see you again soon.
Massive congratulations to team Armstrong who have put on another successful handicap. The handicapping was great for a field of 50+ runners of all abilities. The course was well marked. The food was cooked to perfection (thanks team Bachelor/Hallam). It was great to see so many stick around and chat.
New half marathon world record
Geoffrey Kamworor set a new half marathon world record at Copenhagen on Sunday, knocking 17 seconds off for a new record of 58 minutes, 1 second! Find out more at Runners World.
Doubling for mortals
The typical professional runner runs twice a day almost every day. The typical recreational runner never runs twice a day. Training Peaks takes a look why not, and how doubling up can help.
Mountain running workouts
Coach David Roche has a list of workouts for mountain running, and treadmill variants for people who can’t easily get to the mountains but need to train for them.

Soon, Now and Now
If you live in an area with snakes, please remember:
● When left alone, snakes present little or no danger to people.
● If you see a snake, keep calm and move yourself and anyone with you (including pets) away from the area.
● Do not attempt to capture or harm snakes. Instead call DELWP on 136 186 for further advice, or call a licensed snake catcher.
● Maintain lawns and clean up around your house, as snakes are attracted to shelter such as piles of rocks and timber, sheets of metal, and building materials.
● Undertake first aid training and ensure your first aid kit contains several compression bandages. If someone is bitten, call 000 immediately.
