Race-Calendar Newsletter | Week Ending 7th October 2012

Afternoon Runners,

The seasons are changing around the globe and that means serious runners have to take into account preparation and training for optimum and safer performance.

In many parts of the Southern hemisphere we will see races take place in upwards of 40 Degree C over the coming 3-4 months, and in contrast many races in the Northern Hemisphere will take place at close to or below 0. Treat your body as a temple and prepare well.

With Race-Calendar growing by the minute, (we now offer over 84,000 running places on our online entry system, and have over 54,000 Facebook followers), we are continuing to bring new features to help you stay in touch and up to date around the world.

A new feature this week is the Facebook Connect Feature. We are currently trialling it within the news section (which is where you are now). If you look in the right sidebar you can see a “Connect With Facebook” tab with a blue button. This is no ordinary facebook button. Once you connect with Race-Calendar on Facebook, you become part of an exclusive group that will receive notifications inside Facebook on important updates, race results, featured races, race reports, and many other items of interest.
