Finding new running friends

I contacted the Lane Cove River Runners in Chatswood West (Sydney). They run in Lane Cove National Park a couple of times a week – bush trail or road.  I also contacted a Barbie from Trying A Tri.

From the Jim at the Lane Cove River Runners -
We have a run every Sunday morning in a different location for distances from 10 to 30 k’s, the people who want to run 10 to 15 start at 7:00 AM and the 20 to 30 k runners start at 6:00. The 6:00 AM start is for 4 hr Marathoners 6 :10 for 3 ½ hrs, 6:20 for 3 hrs and 6:30 for those super human types who run sub 3 hrs (or club champ at the moment is running in the low 2:20’s

On an average morning we can get around 100 people out on the streets, the runs cost us $4.00 and for that you get a map with directions, great company and at the finish there is fresh fruit, drinks, cakes and other runner centric snacks. The club welcomes international runners as we also travel all over the world so please come along, we have around 700 adult members so a very mixed bunch of ages (18 to 84) and abilities.
I think that I will have plenty of people to run with!

Wow, that is a very cool. You can even change groups depending on what type of run you want to do (recovery, tempo..etc). $4 is quite the bargain!
