Training runs over the 3M3D course

If you are keen for a trail run on Sunday, 5 April (Easter weekend), can you let me know via email so we can organise when and where we will meet. It will run over most of the course for Day 2 of the 3 Marathons in 3 Days, so we may start at the turn into Vivier’s Track on Clohesy River Road.

We have numerous other trail runs over the 3M3D course during the next few months.

Sun, 03 May, Kauris Half Marathon come-and-try run (16+ only, conditions apply)

Sun, 24 May, Inaugural 3-way Race to the Fig Tree (16+ only, conditions apply)

These runs are all FREE, but you must register your interest prior to the run to receive updates on where to meet, etc.

Free Webinars for 1/2 Marathon, Marathon and Ultra runners

I will start a set of webinars next week – each 3rd Monday of the month at 8.00pm. I was going to do them weekly, but I think once a month will be enough for us to get through all the topics the squads will need in preparation for the events in July. Lorraine

Webinar #2, 16 March: Time Trials; Energy systems,
Webinar #3, 20 April: Pacing & Effort; Long slow distance,
Webinar #4, 18 May: Tempo Running; Race preparation,
Webinar #5, 15 June:  Support & Mental toughness; Race knowledge; Race day,
Webinar #6, 20 July: What’s next?


Lorraine Lawson

Xiamen International Marathon, China

On the invitation of the Marketing Department of the Xiamen International Marathon Organising Committee, Lorraine Lawson from Dynamic Running will attend the Xiamen Marathon Expo from 31 December 2014 through to 2 January 2015. She will also be a spectator at the Marathon on 3 January.

The Marketing Department has arranged accommodation, meals and transport during that time and they are helping out and providing Chinese volunteers and a marque for the stall at the expo. With 45 000 competitors it’s bound to be a busy three days and a spectacular event! And competitors at the Xiamen International Marathon will get an opportunity to see what we have on offer in our back yard, including the 3 Marathons in 3 Days and the Kuranda to 64km Port Douglas Ultra Trail Race.

In true Dynamic Running style, we hope to muster a group together to go over in 2016 to compete in the event. So if you are keen, start saving.
