Anyone seen this guy running around the hills? I interviewed Don this week for the Aussie Runner Podcast and aside from an impressive interview with the nicest runner in the Hills District (and the fastest masters runner in the country) he managed to mention half of the Hills runners in the interview as well! Most of you know him, so go and listen to the podcast...you might be in it! ... See MoreSee Less

The latest episode of the Aussie Runner Podcast has just been released! This episode is a big one…we talk to International Masters Champion Don Mathewson and try to uncover some of the secrets to running as long as we possibly can. Don is an elite masters runner who has won multiple medals at the international level from the 800m through to the half marathon. Don talks to us about managing injuries, some of the misconceptions about masters runners, his unique running obsessions, and the key to running in your 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. If you’ve ever wondered how long you’ll be able to keep running, then you can’t miss this episode. We also kick off a new series in Beers With The Physio with Adam Monteith from Evoker who talks to us about all the elements of ‘pain’ in running, and Neil Webb reviews the much underrated topic of ‘socks’ in his gear review. iTunes itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/s1-e7-world-masters-champion-don-mathewson/id1207155333?i=10003917076...

October 5, 2017, 7:30pm - December 23, 2017, 4:00am

Based on the successful Victorian model, the Sydney Milers Club series will be held at The Crest Athletics Complex, which has garnered a reputation as serving up perfect twilight and evening conditions for middle distance racing. Each event will feature two middle distance events and all efforts will be made to ensure that pacemakers are provided in conditions that will provide the setting for the best possible performances. The pre-Christmas series for 2017 will culminate in the Albie Thomas Mile. Events: 5 October - SMC I - Bankstown 3000 and 800m 2 November - SMC II - Bankstown 5000 and 800m 23 November - SMC III - Bankstown 1500 and 800m 23 December - SMC IV - Albie Thomas Mile and 800m (and Allcomers) Entry Fee: The early-bird entry fee of $10 applies until midnight on the Tuesday before the event. Thereafter, a late entry fee of $15 is charged. This is to encourage athletes to enter early so that start lists may be announced and pacing organised. Online entry is now open through the Bankstown Sports Athletics Club website:https://www.revolutionise.com.au/bankathletics/events/ Seeding: Male and female races will be seeded and all attempts will be made to provide pacemakers for the men's and women's A races in both events on any given night. Start lists will be released as soon as possible once registrations close. Timetable: The event will run from approximately 7:30pm to 9:00pm, with a final timetable to be published on the BSAC and Athletics NSW Facebook pages and websites once registrations close. The 800m (held at each event) will be the first event and the feature event of the night (Bankstown 3000, Bankstown 5000, Bankstown 1500 or Albie Thomas Mile respectively) will be the main event of the night. Check In: Athletes should arrive and check-in at least 30 minutes prior to their event. Uniform and Bibs: Competing athletes must wear club uniform. Race bibs will be provided on the night. Permits: Performances at the Sydney Milers Club will be recognised for qualification purposes and the meet will be run under permit conditions.
