I can't make this Sunday but as a beginner think i would greatly benefit from such a clinic. Can you tell me how often they are run?

Hi Kath

We typically run our clinics every 6 weeks or so. We run two different novice courses, Trail Bunnies (women) and Knobblies (co-ed) .. the next novice clinics after Sunday is a Knobblies on 6 April then a Trail Bunnies on 4 May. You can also check out our website for all upcoming dates at

We hope you can join us soon!

Cheers, Kim
