The rain held off and the athletes came out to play. 47 people ran and walked the 3 courses on offer at the Broulee Run/walk. We welcomed Deanne Brennan from Canberra for her first run with the group. Also, Aiden O’Leary and the Murphy boys Angus and Justin made their first appearance.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Audrey and Regina Knobel, Nick and Ben Hall and Emily Dickinson. In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Matt Johnsen and Jacquellyn O’Leary. In the 5 kilometres the stars were Isabelle Starmer and Greg Whipp.
This evening Matt Johnsen and Gerard Van Weerdenburg (Pictured) were awarded their 30-run shirts. For both it has been a long journey for both men. Matt’s first run with the group was back in 2012. He then travelled to America on an athletic scholarship where he performed with distinction. Since returning to the district he has been active in the promotion and coaching of athletics. Gerard also had his first run in 2012 but injury, work and horses hindered his appearances. He is now back with a vengeance and is about the compete in a triathlon.
