Excellent running conditions attracted 75 starters to this evening’s event. It was great to see Matt Johnsen come back to run after almost 4 years. He is an elite athlete having represented Australia in Cross Country running in the USA. He is the record holder of the 5-kilometre event.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Ruby Johnsen, Benjamin and Neil Mackay. In the 3.5 kilometres improvers were Dylan Holmes and Erin Domeny and the 5 kilometres those to achieve were Andrew Oberg, Louise Cox and Harrison Gilligan.
We welcomed to their first run with the group the McPartland family of Deakin, Rosie, Darren and Kelly, also Piper and Abbey Blacka, Isabella Loprespi, Savina Small, Kim Chivers, Vicky Haritos and Tony Whittaker.
Paul Searson and Dylan Holmes were awarded their 30-run shirts this evening. This award is most significant for Dylan as his grandfather Peter Jackson and mother Sharee Jackson helped kick of the Broulee runners back on 7 February 2007.
The star of the evening was Chris Wade, who celebrated his 100th run. The Wade family are great supporters of the event and Chris with his wife Rachael and children Patrick and Makayla have amassed a total of 448 runs.
