Canberra 50km - 9 April 2006

The Canberra 50 km to be held in conjunction with the Canberra marathon on 9 April has been awarded Selection Race status for the annual IAU 50km trophy race. What this means is that the winning male and female (provided sub 3:20/3:40) will gain automatic entry to the IAU trophy race in Europe with airfares provided. This IAU race carries prizemoney.
The Canberra 50km has also recently been awarded the AURA 50km road championship status and carries double points for placings in relation to the recently revamped AURA points competition. The points competition has $2000 worth of prizes.
Although now too late to enter the event, those who have entered the marathon can run the extra distance so as to complete the 50km.
I will be at the AURA table with samples of the recently released clothing range and memberships application forms.
