Clive Beattie Run

As well as our traditional Autumn Leaves Run in association with the VSCC, all members are invited to our CLIVE BEATTIE RUN, a bit later in the year than usual because of the virus, but as good as ever.

This is an overnight Saturday-Sunday run (though it will be possible to join the group on Sunday morning). The aim is to have convivial dinner and lunch time together, to avoid any pressure to cover the kilometres – and of course to tour through beautiful autumn countryside.

DATE: Saturday 22 May and Sunday 23 May. We will depart 3.00 pm on Saturday afternoon from Bundoora. The first leg is about 116 km. Those with a bit more time will of course be able to club together and invent themselves a bit of pre-tour and lunch. Anyone struggling to get away on Saturday afternoon will have the option of getting up early on Sunday and zooming up to meet the rest as they set off.

MEAL COSTS: The Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch are non-refundable pre-paid items when you register. The negotiated pre-paid non-refundable group price (not including drinks of course) is $55 per head  for dinner and $40 for lunch.

                                Afternoon coffees etc will be up to you and pay-as-you-go.

ACCOMMODATION: There is a range of accommodation in the district, but members always prefer to be together so we have reserved blocks as follows:

  • Alexandra Motor Inn – a conventional good-quality motel with ensuites, no breakfast offered, $125 per room. Unless we get a high registration, this motel should be able to accommodate us all and so is our primary recommendation. On-line booking at If it comes up as blocked, you will need to phone 03 5772 2077. Mention Lancia.

Full refund in the event of COVID.

  • Alexandra Hotel – a renovated pub which has 4 rooms left this weekend, one on the ground floor. Breakfast not included in the tariff of $120 per room. We are dining at this hotel on Saturday night and so it is our second recommendation. On-line booking

Full refund in the event of COVID.

  • Corner Hotel – just across the road from the Alexandra with a range of rooms, all upstairs, some with en suite, most with shared bathrooms. Tariffs range from $80 to $175 and include breakfast. On-line booking at
