Excellent conditions for vigorous running and walking greeted the 73 starters in Wednesday’s weekly Broulee event. We welcomed Nash and Alby Clark, Jeremy Archer, L Hofwood, and Charlotte Devine to their first run with the group.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Jessica Flood, Poppy Melgaard, Jonathan Antoniak, Madeline and Kye O’Connell, Milly Shanahan, Sabrina Mallard, Jacquie Berry, Amelia Tomson and Isabella O’Brien.
In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Xavier and Alice O’Brien, Hayden Louttit and Nancy Costin.
The lone star in the 5 kilometres was a regular visitor from Canberra Simon Wall. Simon is very dedicated to his fitness and runs at least 5 kilometres every day and he has not missed a day in over 12 months.
The special feature of this evening was the presentation of 30-run shirts to Liz and Jo Pirro (Pictured). They started with the group on 26 July last year. They are in their seventies and are resident at Banksia Village. Their efforts have inspired other residents to come and participate. The event is for all levels of fitness and it builds community spirit.
Above: One is of the group making their excuses about their poor form and then proceed to run close to their best time!!
Above: Liz and Jo Pirro. They are so happy with their achievement. This is the true spirit of the event.
