For those of you thinking, "why should I officially join JFS?" when you are linked to the Facebook page, on this email distribution list and have access to the JFS website for free, here are a few reasons to consider;
So c'mon, don't run alone, be a part of one of the oldest running clubs in Jakarta.
Due to a large number of complaints from regular visitors to the zoo, the zoo management have re-established the unofficial 6am opening time. We have received this information directly from the Zoo Management (Thanks Ross).
For those that enjoy the opportunity to run in a safe environment away from traffic on a Saturday morning, join us once again starting at 6:30 am every Saturday at Ragunan Zoo.
For those yet to experience this Saturday morning JFS ritual, after paying a small vehicle and individual entrance fee, enter through the north gates and turn right. Approximately 100m on your left is a bus shelter where we meet for a 06:30 start. Some run the 5k loop, some take paths less travelle d and manage between 8 and 12k. Speeds vary from relatively fast to a slow fartlek (jogging and walking) so please don't be afraid that the pace will be too fast or too slow, you will find someone to run/jog/walk with.
If you enjoy a leisurely and social Saturday morning, all are welcome to join us after the run at citos for a well deserved breakfast when our favourite cafe opens at 8am.
Happy running ...
A reminder that the Jakarta Race Series is under way. The first race was postponed due to storms creating localised flooding and additional safety issues with lightening strikes, but the good news is that this race is now rescheduled for May 15. For those with bibs, please keep them and use them on May 15 at BSJ. The next race in the series is at JIS on March 20. Bibs go on sale soon at Sukaoutdoors, JIS, BSJ and SPH Kemang. Proceeds go to local charities.
JIS Race Bibs on Sale at Sukaoutdoor from Sunday March 6th
