Just a reminder about the Christmas Gift Run on 23 December:

Don your Christmas garb as there will be prizes for best festive outfits!

If you would like to participate in Christmas gift giving please bring a wrapped gift of $10 value to place under the tree.

After the untimed group run/walk (distance of your choice) a sumptuous morning tea will be provided for all thanks to our wonderful Christmas fairies!

Those who brought gifts will then be called up in age groups to pick a present from under the tree.

Merry Christmas to all from the Committee!
