Strong northerly winds did not stop the 53 starters in this evening’s Broulee run/walk. Each had to bend their backs on the return journey to be able to keep moving forward.
Personal best times were hard to achieve. Nevertheless, Katie Patyus, Audrey Knobel and Nancy Costin improved their 2 kilometres times. Anthony Miles continues to impress in the 5 kilometres and Louise Cox returning from her lengthy stay in the North of England reduced her time by 61 seconds in the 5 kilometres.
Dave Connaughton, with only a week since his hernia operations, managed to run and walk the 5-kilometre distance in 32.47 minutes. David is the Iron Man of the group having completed 389 runs out of the 520 runs held since the very beginning. All of his appearances have been over the 5-kilometres distance.
This evening 4-year-old Audrey Knobel received her 30-run shirt. We also welcomed Trish Eccles and Barb Evans, two very active senior citizens. This demonstrates the cross section of people who come to enjoy the friendship and fun of this community event.
