Summer run

Bucasia Social Run


Shawn's Summer Series - Oct 2017 to Feb 2018

Coordinators of Summer Socials - at least on in attendance to organise each event.


Runners of all abilities are welcome. Social, not competitive good way to finish your week-end. Bring a water bottle. Refreshing fruit provided at runs end. Gold coin donation appreciated. This year be the overall ‘summer champion’. End of series prize to runner with most accumulated kilometres in the summer runs. Note-: Handcapp event with extra K’s awarded to the older participants each week. ( 41 to 45 - 1Km), (46 to 50 - 2 Km), (51 to 55 - 3Km) and so on. This of course will involve an element of honesty; I remain an optimist. Note -: Course extensions for masochists and short run (5 km) for beginners always available.
