PyCon AU 2015 runs (not sprints)

PyCon AU 2015 starts at the end of July and I would encourage you to pack your running gear and join us for an informal morning run before the conference each day. These runs are intended to be inclusive rather than a race, and are designed to be about 5 km long.

The details are almost the same as last year, with two key changes:

  1. A new start location as the conference is at the Pullman Brisbane Hotel this year
  2. The Brisbane Marathon is on the Sunday morning and some of the conference attendees have entered (there are a range of events: 5km, 10km, half marathon and marathon). If you want to do a serious run on the Sunday, then get your entry in soon! Otherwise, we will still plan on having a casual group run that will do its best to avoid the marathon route.

Here are the details for the runs:

MEETING PLACE: We will meet at the entrance of the conference venue, the Pullman Brisbane Hotel, on the corner of Ann & Roma Streets.

DAYS: We will run all five mornings; Friday (the miniconfs day) through Tuesday (last day of the sprints).

START TIME: 7am sharp, aiming to be back around 7:30 – 7:40, giving you time to shower and eat before the conference starts at 9am.

ROUTE: We will vary the route each day, but it will be approximately 5 km long and we will aim to take in some of the local sights, including the Brisbane River and the Botanical Gardens.

IF IT’S WET? I will still run if it’s drizzling. If it’s a torrential downpour, I’m sleeping in. On the sliding scale between drizzle and downpour, it is safe to assume that I will be more likely to run than not, so see you there.
