Welcome to our new website ;o) We will be sending you an email soon letting you know about the changes we are making to Extra Mile Runners in 2020 which gives you more flexibility to run with your team.
Saturday Runners will be operating as normal up to and including Saturday 18 January. Mid January we will be emailing our Saturday Runners who have valid sessions left to let you know that we have converted these sessions to Drop In Sessions - which enables you to come to any Extra Mile Runners weekday (or, of course Saturday!) session from 20 January. You just need to read the email we send you so you can start booking into your sessions.
We are excited about next year and are looking forward to helping our team achieve their running goals by offering more flexibility around when you can train with your team!
For now, it's business as usual for Saturday Runners - and below are the details for this coming Saturday session.
This Week's Session
Saturday 21 December
Start Time: 7.30am
Meeting Point: South Hagley Park, Deans Ave side. Click here for meeting point map
Coffee: We would love to see you at Coffee Culture on Lincoln Road after your final run
Christmas Pack of Cards Session!
This is our annual Christmas session and is free for everyone so feel free to bring your friends/family along to this session. We also do a collection for the City Mission Food Bank at the session, see the details below.
How the session works:
Santa has a pack of cards. You run up to him and he draws a card from the pack - will it be a Heart, Club, Diamond, Spade an Ace or a Joker? Each "suit" has a station assigned to it (for example):
Hearts = shuttle runs
Diamonds = out and back run
Spade = combination shuttle run/pressups
Clubs = pressups
Beware the Ace or a Joker!
What ever card you get, you run to that station and do the exercise assigned to it. Once completed, you run back to Santa for the next card. Everyone works to their own pace, it's heaps of fun! Christmas costume optional but encouraged ;o).
City Mission Food Bank Donation
At this Christmas session we do a collection for the City Mission Food Bank, so if you want to bring something along for this donation, it would be much appreciated.
Saturday Runners keeps going over Christmas and New year so keep an eye out for those Monday morning newsletters as normal!
Our Group Programmes (Get up to Five, Club10k and RaceTeam) start in January 2020 and we are really excited about the things you guys are going achieve next year. For your diaries, our group programmes start:

If you want to become an Extra Mile Runners member though our 6mth or 12mth memberships, you can register for a Group Programme at no extra cost. You do need to register before the programme begins and have a valid membership for the duration of the programme.
When you become an Extra Mile Runners member, the details on how to register for a Group Programme is outlined in your confirmation email.
We will be in touch mid January to let you know we have converted any valid Saturday Runners sessions you have into Drop In Sessions which means you can come to any Extra Mile Runners sessions during the weekdays too starting from 20 January.
