    Congratulations to all of the PCRG members who took part in the Good Friday 10k. There were so many impressive performances! Photos below.

    When race day arrives there is no doubting that distance running is very much an individual sport however it has been proven that training in a group helps you get the most out of yourself. Researchers from Princeton University in the US say exercising with others is better for the brain. Full article here.

    Steve Grace is one such runner who is thriving on the PCRG environment. You will find a brief report from Steve below.

    With the best part of eleven weeks till Gold Coast we all have ample time to become stronger and fitter. Attending the group sessions and rolling through your own relaxed runs will ensure you have left no stone unturned.

    Catch you ALL in the morning.



    P.S. It will only take a PCRG session or two to rid yourself from feeling guilty about all of that chocolate you have indulged in!

    Good Friday 10k photos

    Yes, we now have a PCRG canopy which will prove an ideal meeting point at events.

    The canopy will soon be decorated in large PCRG lettering.

    Steve Grace - Good Friday 10k Feedback

    Just another "over the moon" group member.

    It was like one of our training session out there. PCRG runners everywhere still encouraging each other as if we were at training. Thank you PCRG, it definitely kept me going and helped me achieve the 48.04.

    The training sessions have been tough but exceptional and group support has taken the effort to the next level. Not only is this thanks to you Pat, our inspirational trainer who keeps us honest at training, but also a huge thanks to Sue and PCRG members for the support and great team spirit.

    The word is out about the PCRG. There is an air of unity, energy and support that people want to get amongst.

    Gold Coast 2006 - GOALS

    I will post your Gold Coast 2006 Goal on my site as well as on a board which will be displayed at the group sessions.

    Please get out your diaries, your PATHWAY to success will involve these important dates.
