So welcome to the new Run For Your Life (R4YL) website. We have been thinking about launching a website over the past 5 years, but had always felt most sections of the running community were already accounted for with existing sites. Although now, we do feel like we have something extra to add and so here we are.
We will be doing our very best to ensure that the content on the R4YL website is very similar to R4YL in that it will cover virtually every aspect of running with Australia. This is from: interviews and information from elite athletes; race reports; inspirational stories from Australian runners; detailed articles on nutrition or the latest scientific studies; ultra running to mountain running and orienteering; through to the most comprehensive running calendar for Australian running events. We have even gone the extra mile with our running calendar, as we have personally contacted every race director to ensure the details are as accurate and up to date as possible.
I am also really pleased to announce a new Australian Running Series. This national point score system will include hundreds of running events from around Australia, and runners of all levels will accumulate points for each performance based on their age and gender. This exciting competition will allow mothers and fathers to compete against their children, or invoke friendly challenges between old running buddies. Hopefully by the end of 2013, we will have over 1000+ runners include in this pointscore which we are hoping to launch in April.
So we hope you enjoy the site and please come back regularly to make sure you don't miss out on any of the fantastic content.
