The rain held off for this evening Broulee Run/Walk and 64 people of all ages completed their chosen distance over this scenic and testing course.
We can claim the event as international because we have had many visitors from overseas participate and this evening was no exception. Makoto Fujiyasu from Japan ran the 2 kilometres with his friends Helen Okey and Jye Barbara.
Other first times were Adam, Andrew and Jason Kidd, Jules McCarthy, Tania Dorney, Tim Cowley and Jacquellyn and Aiden O’Leary.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Rafael Dyason, Sunni West, Max Kidd, Hallie Wignell, Julia McDermott, Amelia Barker and Melanie Atteridge.
In the 3.5 Kilometres the improvers were Hugh Wignell, Vaughn Gilligan and Matthew Edenborough.
Past and present Broulee runners have achieved at the international level with Jayla Cameron-Hancock winning silver at the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires and Daniel Beby recording an excellent time in the Ironman World Championships held Hawaii last Sunday.
