6am conference mornings from the back of St Georges college on Park Ave. Anyone driving can park right next to this location on Park Ave and it is in the park already.
+
Please add other topics you'd like to cover.
  
Conference mornings, Perth has no Daylight saving and it will be hot in January, we will be keen to get a morning run out of the way early.
+
Event Organiser:
In past years we have met up at 6am to head out for a run, anyone keen to join in is welcome. There are a large number of options in the Kings park area to really enjoy a morning run.
+
Jason Lewis
  
My initial suggestion is meet out the front of Trinity College each morning and we can find runs to do into Kings Park and along the river. I have done some runs in both areas in the past and it really is worthwhile. There ares ome interesting features such as Jacobs Ladder, a set of stairs many runners test themselves out on at the end of Cliff St at the other end of the park. Good trails through the park and some great scenery along the river for easier runs.

Also possibly of interest to anyone arriving early (there in time for Saturday morning 4th of Jan or still around the following Saturday morning 11th Jan) there are free timed weekly 5km runs all around Australia called Parkrun. They started in the UK and there a re a huge number over there. In Perth there are 3 on and the closest to the campus is Claisebrook Cove. http://www.parkrun.com.au/claisebrookcove/
