The warm summer weather attracted lots of visitors to this evening’s run. Some make it a yearly event to participate. 77 starters completed the 3 distances. In the 2 kilometres Louis and Olivia Hayward together with Niamh Scahill recorded personal best times. In the 3.5 kilometres, it was a family affair with Gabriel and Mark Kennedy improving with Justine Beaumont completing the family trifecta of PBs. Rob Ryan once again improved in the 5 kilometres. Heath McLachlan, a visitor from Geelong, was also impressive in improving his time over this distance.
It was a big occasion for a number of Broulee runners this evening for the last event of 2017. 30-run shirt was awarded to Ruby Connor. Makayla Wade and Daniel Beby recorded their 100th run. Makayla, whose first run was on 4 November 2015, joins her brother Patrick on this mark. It is a special attraction of the event that the very young like Makayla can enjoy the event and achieve. Also, elite athletes like Daniel can enjoy the event with his wife and three children. Daniel, who joined the group on 17 June 2015, is the local record holder in the 5-kilometres with a time of 16.47. The only athlete in front of him is Matt Johnsen, who has represented Australia in an International Cross event in America.
The achievers for the year 2017 are Greg Flood with the most number of runs, the most improved female athlete is Julianne Domeny and the most improved male is Morgan Pettit.
