Magnolia Member of the Month

The Magnolia Committee decided to announce a Magnolian of the Month in order to introduce all the movers and shakers to the club, based on any form of service/contribution or achievement.

For the month of August we decided to award this to Colette Curle. 
Colette has been an example and inspiration to fellow runners and completed two ultra marathons in March and April 2018. She was also willing to lend her help when it was truly needed. We wish Colette many happy races.

Sunday Runs

Sunday Magnolia Slow Club Run
The club will be offering a second club run on Sundays for all those who feel they are a little slow for the current group but are looking for group support.
Reminder, our slow run is open to all runners from all clubs and please note change in start time for this coming weekend.
Sunday will be hosted by Colin and if more details are required please contact
Janeen            082 415 4753                  
Colin                082 578 3935
Magnolia Sunday "tap" runs for the normal group

There is a change in the way the Sunday tap runs will be hosted from Sunday 5 August:

Please bring your own drinks in a bottle or Camelback. The cost for the run will only be a contribution to the Car Guard.

Reason for the change:

Some Fuel stations don’t supply plastic straws anymore. This will also limit pollution.

Planning of routes for tap runs will be easier, no need having a Fuel station every 3km.

However stops will still be announced at about every 3 km where the faster runners can turn around. The group still wait for the slowest runner starting again.
