SATURDAY RUN REMINDER

7am for a longer run

7.30am for a medium/shorter run/walk

FIT members of all levels are welcome at the Saturday run held at a different location each week.  The shorter run/walk starts at 7.30am, with a 7am start at the same location for those who want a longer run. New members, including walkers, will be matched to those of similar ability where possible and should attend the 7.30am start. This is a non-coached event. Please join us for our usual long, loud breakfast after the run, which is scheduled from 8.30am.

Saturday: 29 November

Meet: Kambah Pool Car park – take left turn at end of Kambah Pool Road

Run: NEW RUN –Centennial Trail Southside 7: Kambah Pool to Pine Island

From car park cross Kambah Pool Road and look for the Centenary Trail sign at the trail head - follow the signs in a south easterly direction for 4km – the trail follows the Murrumbidgee River which should be on your right heading out, and left heading back. At 2km out it is worth taking the side track to look at Red Rocks Gorge on the Murrumbidgee River. Turn at 4km and retrace steps. The trail is well marked, there are quite a few gates to climb over, it is rocky and undulating so take care. If you have trail running shoes wear these.

Eat at 8.30: Western Basement  45B Liardet St Weston, under the indoor cricket arena at Cooleman Court Shopping Centre (across from McDonalds)

FIT run 34 Centennial Trail Southside

FIT Sat run # 34 Centennial Trail Southside 7

8 km

FIT MEMBERSHIP HAS CHANGED ......

  • From 2014, you'll now also need to become a member of our sport's peak representative body Triathlon Australia (TA) and its local arm Triathlon ACT (TACT).
  • One of the benefits of this affiliation will be to increase insurance cover for FIT and its volunteers.
  • For most members this will mean a small increase of $5 in annual fees to cover TA/CT membership, as well as FIT annual membership fees which will remain the same for 2014-15:
    • $45 for renewing members
    • $50 for new members.

A small additional processing fee also applies.

  • There's more information here - please take the time to read this so you understand the new approach.
  • Membership for the upcoming year now goes via the Triathlon Australia website where you can complete your FIT & TA/CT membership in one easy process by clicking on the following:
  • Membership

  • NOTE: If you have previously taken out a multi-year membership that has not expired you still need to join and pay the TA/CT fee according to your choice of membership level. FIT has sent multi-year members a code to use so you don't pay the FIT membership fee again. If you don't have this please email janehome@grapevine.com.au. Multi-year memberships are no longer available.
  • If you do not want or are unable to join FIT using the internet please call the TACT office for assistance on 6260 4430 or  admin@triathlonact.com.au.
