Excellent weather conditions attracted 84 starters to this evening’s Broulee run/walk. We welcomed Tino and Laura Lopresti and also Elise Butler to their first run with the group. Damien Lyons, a visitor on holidays from Melbourne ran strongly in the 5 kilometres and enjoyed the occasion and promise to return and promote the event. It was a special occasion for two recent mothers in Michelle Mitchell carrying baby Lucinda and Regina Knobel carrying baby Lotte.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Vaughn Gilligan, Mitchell Beby, Poppy Melgaard, Poppy Mitchell, Kelly McPartland, Rocco Lopresti, Julien Dunn, Betty Jeffery, Charley Proksch, Helen Okey, Jye Barbara, Carol Marsden, Peter Johnsen and Lucinda Mitchell. In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Dylan Holmes, Leora Kelly and Isabella Lopresti. In the 5 kilometres the achievers were Scott Melgaard, Alan Andrews, Jared Searson, Angie Gannon and Selby Johnston.
The star of the night was Christian Proksch, who was awarded his 30-run shirt. Christian is the fourth member of his family to achieve this reward. This is a reflection of the attraction of the event in that parents and their young children can participate and have fun. Christian is pictured with wis family Jo, Charley and Leo.
Best wishes to our marathon runners Nev Madden, Anthony Miles and Morgan Pettit, who will be running next Sunday in the Canberra Running festival. Also, we have Lauren Evans, Alan Andrews, Josh Connaughton and Gary Ashton running in the half marathon.
