Annual General Meeting 2017

The 2017 AGM will be held Monday 28 August 2017 in the Premiership Club Dining Room at the MCG. Our guest speaker will be Robert de Castella, our patron.

Club Run

The next club run will be held Sunday July 23 at 8:00 am. It will start near the observatory, opposite the shrine. We will run clockwise, so if you arrive late, run in the other direction to pick up a group. Parking is free on Sunday.

We will have coffee afterwards at Jardin Tan.

De Castella Fun Run

Anyone who wishes a pre-AGM run should look no further than the de Castella Fun Run on August 27. Jay Fleming has entered a Spartans team with the password ‘spartans’ in the 15 km distance.

The group will be running as a team at all events on Melbourne Marathon day this year. Training commences Tuesday July 4 with 3 sessions weekly – Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park Tuesdays 6.30 / Collingwood Aths Track Thursdays 6.30 / Saturday Tan Track The Shrine 7.30am.

This year the charity is Fight MND. The aim is to raise $50,000. The group has several team members who are striving to become Spartan members – one is at #9 mara and two at #7.
