Excellent conditions with virtually no wind helped the 69 starters achieve 13 personal best times. There were two new competitors in Clayton O’Brien and Owen Gordon. It was Clayton’s first look at the difficult 5-kilometre course and he ran an excellent time of 18.18. This places him at equal 9th fastest time in the 12-year history of the event.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Declan and Nina McPherson, Jordan Carter and Kate Patyus. In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Yma and Garran Carnall, Justin Murphy, Ross Wilson, Mirella Granata, Audrey Knobel and Peter Johnsen.
In the 5 kilometres the improvers were Angus Murphy and Jason Domeny. The Murphy boys (father and son) continue to impress each week as this is the second week in a row that both have recorded personal best times. Jason has taken over the title of the Broulee Runners PB Man with his rapid improvement over each of the events.
Above: The Knobel family were proud to introduce their matriarch, who is on a visit from Germany. She looked after baby Lotte, who is normally carried by Regina over the 2 kilometres. This allowed Regina to run a personal best time in the 3.5 kilometres.
