  • Pat,

    PCRG will take place this Friday (Good Friday).

    Special mention goes to Jane de Gautt for taking a massive chunk off her initial attempt and also Michael Hansen (PCRG Life Member) for banging out a personal best.

    PCRG "cup" sponsor. Picture your company logo on paper cups at PCRG - all you have to do is cover the cost involved. Please touch base with me if you're interested.

    Pre Gold Coast dinner: I've booked The Ship Inn for Friday June 22 and I'm in two minds as to how we'll "feature" the night.

    1) Possibly a motivational speaker. Please touch base with me if you know of an appropriate contact.

    2) To run a Calcutta. This being where x number of PCRG members are selected and they each have a predicted Gold Coast finish time allocated - these individuals don't have to attend on the night. Each member will be auctioned off on the night with the auction pool divided between winners of the 3 closest times. This might be fun?

    You can put forward your preference here.

    Pat Farmer will be at East Leagues Club 40 Main Avenue, Coorparoo on Tuesday April 17. Tickets are $15 and Includes talk, Q & A and book signing. Details here

    Catch you in the am and/or on Friday - both will be "GOOD"!



    P.S. Don't forget about Noosa Half Marathon/10k - details below.

    Noosa Half Marathon/Noosa Mizuno 10k - May 6

    I rate the Noosa Half Marathon and 10k course as being one of Australia's fastest. The start is on Noosa Parade with the finish line situated in the Lions Park. The 21.1km run is over two laps of a completely flat course that heads out along the Noosa River to Tewantin. The Mizuno Noosa 10k follows the same route but only one lap, while the 5km run/walk is also over one lap, out and back along famous Noosa Parade.

    The added bonus this year is the fact we don't have to rush home to the "here we go again" Mondayitis. Monday May 7 is a public holiday (Labour Day).

    This will be an ideal pre Gold Coast hit out and there'll be a strong PCRG showing.

    PCRG Sponsor: Mizuno

    Intraining stocks a full range of Mizuno shoes and apparel.

    Thank you Mizuno for being a PCRG sponsor!

    PCRG's Best Sponsor of all time!

    The Ship Inn has been PCRG's home since inception and we're forever grateful.

    Thanks heaps John!

    Hilly Socks - second to none!

    I met Ron Hill pre 1986 London Marathon - Ron is a true legend! This meeting encouraged me to try "Hilly Socks" some 25 years later. I'm particularly impressed with the Mono Skins and can honestly say they're the best fitting sock I've ever worn.

    Hilly Socks are professionally made with comfort second to none!
