January 2015 update

Dear RRRunners,

First of all, to those who don’t follow our Facebook page, you might not have seen photos from Song Hong 2014 – so here they are.

Did you have a chance to check your official race time from SH14? Take a look here.

Song Hong 2014 was a non-profit event and all money we make goes to ENV – Education for Nature Vietnam. We are still working on the balance sheet but we are pleased to announce that we will be able to match our contribution to ENV from last year and in fact hoping to INCREASE that contribution substantially. We will confirm shortly what the final donation will be. Again, we thank ENV for their wonderful support – without their volunteers and input before the race, we would not have such an event.

This is also a good time to thank all the sponsors involved – we absolutely must have sponsors in order to fund the event, and many sponsors donate specialist goods or services which we couldn’t do without. Thank you all!

Our next event will be our annual turnUPandRUN 10km race which will take place soon after Tet holiday. This is a FREE entry race and we hope to host a Red River Runners social event after the race. More info to follow in a few weeks. We will be looking for partners to sponsor some prizes -so get in touch if you would like to do that.

Other than that, come on out and join us on our weekly runs. On Wednesday nights at 7pm we meet at Syrena Centre (51 Xuan Dieu) for our speed training sessions – these are perfect for runners of all abilities and fitness levels and we’d love to have even more runners new and old. On Saturdays at 4pm (winter time) we meet in alternate locations for our social run. This run is usually about 10km – with options for those who wish to go further and frequently features a nice cold drink afterwards.  We announce the meet-up spot over on our Facebook page a few hours beforehand – it’s either at Syrena Centre or JAFA restaurant in Ciputra. Join us!
