  • Message from our Club President and the ASRWC Committee

    We find ourselves living in unusual and unique times and I hope your doing ok adjusting to all the changes being put in place to reduce the health impacts of COVID-19.
    This email is an update to let you know as a valued member that the committee has decided to cancel all club events, including WMM training sessions until further notice. This decision is made in light of government directives and public health advice relating to gatherings of people. This also means that in line with the decision to cancel the West Macs Monster event in 2020, the Alice Springs Marathon will also not be run in 2020 due to the long lead time required to successfully run the event.
    Whilst we are all inconvenienced as a result, this time will also give us the opportunity to develop some virtual events, training ideas and strava based opportunities. In coming months it will still be important to stay active and stay in touch, just doing so within the rules and with consideration for those less fit and healthy than you. We look forward to a point in the future when it will be possible to commence with our 2020 event calendar again.
