Registration opening soon!!!

26 April 2016 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

Signing up with a new registration company this year after teething problems last year has been a slow process but we are just about to go 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.
I had a note in from Brett Hausmann asking a few questions, but his email address was incorrect, so if you see this Brett, please contact me again.
Look forward to seeing you all in November!!!

Late Entries Temporary Glitch.

6 November 2015 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

Those trying to enter over the last hour over so have got a note saying the online entries have closed. I am working to fix this, and will post a note here when the system is back on line. Sorry for the inconvenience!!

The Fab Four have become the Fab Three because of injury and would like to hear from anyone wanting run a 8 to 12 km leg of the marathon course. If you are interested please call me on 63673290. The Teams Marathon is so much fun, and there are hard and easy legs!

*Stop Press*

4 November 2015 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

After discussions with our timing provider, Steve Martin and our online registration company, Active, we have decided that there is no reason why we cannot extend our online entries to 5.30pm on Saturday.

So entries and registration can be done on Saturday at the Court House in Carcoar between 12-5.30pm AND ONLINE AT ANY TIME BETWEEN NOW AND SATURDAY AT 5.30pm, but remember you must register and pick up your bibs at the Court House on Saturday or at least 30mins before your race on Sunday Race day – again at the Court House.

Three days to go!

4 November 2015 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

Bib Collection at the magnificent Carcoar Court House in Icely St between 12 and 5.30 on Saturday 7th November, or else at least 30 minutes before your race at the Court House on Sunday Race Day.

Half marathoners need to make up their minds whether to base their cars at Carcoar and catch the bus ($10) to Neville for the start, or to go to the start at Neville and collect your bibs from the Neville Race Manager, who will be accompanying the bus coming from Carcoar.

This year numbers will be up, so we ask you to help us by not leaving things to the last minute.

Teams Marathon – there are plenty of old hands re teams, and we very much would like to welcome The Beulah Dibbs Euchre Club Runners team to the Carcoar Cup. We presume Beulah was a sensational sprinter for the tea room in between hands and that was the inspiration behind this team. Teams need to be organised, so those teams entering for the first time please contact me 02 63673290 to make sure you have your changeovers right.

Welcome to the 2015 Carcoar Cup!

25 August 2015 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

It’s hard to believe that here we are in our FIFTH year. Our event has gone from a madman’s idea to an event which attracts runners from all over Australia and even overseas. Whole families come and in 2015 we think we will have over 250 kids in the Carcoar Cup for Kids. They make a weekend of it, staying in this fantastic region (please contact us if you need any help with accommodation 02 6367 3290), coming to the great Pasta Night on Saturday night to rub shoulders with other runners and their families. On the day all runners are recognised for their efforts – everybody gets a beautiful medal, there is a pace and a time for all runners – not all of us have the Harry Summers or Angela Bateup afterburners after all.

The Carcoar Cup experience is one that people who have become friends revisit year after year, and that those who will be friends are entering for the first time. This is one of the greatest and most beautiful courses in Australia. We have put in a huge amount of effort to make it a challenging and enjoyable festival for you all, so please come and join us.
