So the title says it all - Sydney Summer Series not "Sydney Street Series". Our Sydney crew have been once this year and a couple last year. They would prefer more street - tough with pram on "bush" sections.

Yes I went an checked the 2nd letter a week ago to find that out.
Pram would be impossible for half of the route choices.
I have seen a "walkers" category down here but I cannot remember whether there is a "prams" category.
I am still missing the Newcastle series and the participants but I have to accept my current path now.

I think the walkers category is fairly competitive too - at least in the pointy end - as in power walkers. Fairly sure prams won't exist - you just get what you get... and fair enough. I think we instituted it when Emily had the girls, or about then. In our world it seems like a "not too hard" decision to make and a nice acknowledgement of those who want to be a part of the scene but not always at the very "bottom" of the points.
And pushing a pram is a fairly tough way to do it on some hills and some grassy paths.
