WAMC Training Groups

Point Walter

Intervals Session

WAMC Clubrooms

8 km time trials, 6.00 pm every Monday. Point Walter Kiosk.

(Burswood Water Sports Centre) Camfield Drive, Burswood.

6 km + 5.30 pm every Wednesday. WAMC Office 9472 4833.

People run in informal groups, depending on their preferred pace and distance – if

you’re a newcomer, ask around. The 5.30 start time is fairly nominal, but until you

get the hang of things, it would be a good idea to be punctual. Also, the bar opens

after the run, and there’s a lot of socialising. On the third Wednesday of every

month, a BYO food BBQ is held.
