This year’s Annual General Meeting of MacRitchie Runners 25 members has been scheduled for Sunday 23rd March at 11am.
The venue will remain unchanged from last year – the meeting will be held in Thomson Community Club, 194 Upper Thomson Road (opposite the “Long House”).
All active members are welcome to participate – if there’s anything that you want discussed, this is the perfect opportunity to have your voice heard.
We are organising a trip to Kuantan Half Marathon 2014, which will be held on 11th May in Kuantan, Malaysia.
Since there already quite a few of us who decided to participate, we are extending an invitation to all MR25 members, as well as non-members. The more – the merrier, right? We will be leaving Singapore early in the morning of 10th May and returning in the evening of 12th May or afternoon of 13th May – subject to a consensus yet to be agreed among those who will sign up to participate. We are planning to hire a mini-bus or a coach – depending on the numbers – so that we can arrive rested, relaxed and focused on achieving our PBs!!! The provision of accommodation is also to be agreed at later date, once we get better idea on numbers of interested.
More information on the run, registration fees and entitlement can be found on organisers’ website: http://dustymonkeys.com.my/event/brooks-kuantan-half-marathon-2014/
