25 October 2016 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

I have managed to get an extension from the wonderful Nathan at Ablaze Print, so if you want a NAMED BIB please make sure you register before 6pm next Sunday 30th October.
That is definitely the cutoff for named bibs.
All runners registering after that time will have their names expertly written in with a text colour at registration – but it’s just not the same – so get your registrations in before Sunday evening.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the best running event in Australia (I am a little biased but many seem to agree with me!)

Pasta Night 2016

21 October 2016 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

The Pasta Night returns to the historic Carcoar School of Arts on the Saturday night before race day. Runners and their families can rub shoulders with other runners and get the buzz that is the Carcoar Cup. Food will be delicious with a number of different pasta choices both meat and vegetarian, great salads and a glass of wine, juice or sift drink on arrival, and cake tea and coffee to finish. All proceeds will be going to the Carcoar P&C, who are hell bent on setting a standard for the night that will make this a must attend part of the Carcoar Cup for years to come. The Race Director and other members of our great volunteer team will be there to chat and answer any questions that you may have. It will be a great night. Cost is $25 per head all up adults and $15 children.
If you wish to attend, then please either phone 026367 3290, or email andrew@carcoarcup.com.au. There will be a chance to buy tickets at registration on Saturday afternoon, but the more notice you give us the better!

Need a relay team member?

15 September 2016 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

Registrations are coming along well, but occasionally we get a runner wanting a team in the Team’s relay. Penny Ferris would love to run a 10km leg, so if we have a team which is a member or two short, please contact me and I will put you in touch with Penny.

*Registration now open for all events*

1 August 2016 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

Signed up with a new registration company this year after teething problems last year. It has been a slow process but we have now gone live, and I think the new forms are great. I will be interested in your feedback. In the first four years of the Carcoar Cup, I did everything myself re the registration, but for anybody who has done it solo it is hugely time consuming, and I am so pleased to have found a new company that I think will do the job really well.

Look forward to seeing you all in November!!!

Fundraising targets.
With the Carcoar Cup we have always wanted to make it easy for groups to raise money for their favourite charities. Uralba Aged Care in Carcoar, the RFS and Shalom have been major recipients. This year we are welcoming the local Blayney High School with is entering a 26 person team into the Mile Long Club with the aim to raise a significant amount of money for the new Palliative Care Unit planned for Blayney. In this they will be helped by the Blayney Rotary Club, which is the major financial supporter of this initiative. We are also hopeful that Cadia Valley Operations will also enter a 26 person team to again raise money for Uralba.

(For this of you who are not familiar with the Mile Long Club I set it up with the thought that as there were 26 miles – the old measurement – in the Marathon, then if 26 team members could each run or walk for a mile of the marathon then the whole team does a marathon. Mile Long Team members can then raise sponsorship to support their cause. Members do a mile long course around Carcoar and are cheered out and back, so it is a lot of fun.)

PLEASE GIVE SOME THOUGHT TO HOW YOU CAN ENTER A TEAM AND WE WILL SUPPORT YOU TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY. If you can;t raise a 26 person team, then get in touch and we will help you out.
