Be Active Metro Series Finale
The final event in the 2012/13 Series will be held this Saturday, at the usual time of 5.00pm, at Jabe Dodd Park, Mosman Park.
Registration will be open from around 4.15pm, and a briefing for beginners will be conducted at around 4.45pm, before a mass start at 5.00pm. After the event, at around 6.15pm the overall Series awards will be presented, so bring your dinner and stay for a riverside picnic!
This is the final event in the current Series, and most categories have been decided in the overall Series scores. Categories which could change are Open Women on the Long Course, Open Men on Medium, and Junior Men and Veteran Women on the Short Course. There could be a tie in Veteran Men on the Medium Course – if Ron Marcus wins on Saturday he will join Lee Holliday in first place, and with identical scores over their best six rounds, it means there can be no tie-breaker. Minor placings in several categories will also be decided on Saturday.
