51 starters participated in Wednesday’s Broulee Run/walk, which was the best field since the cold weather arrived in May. It was pleasing to see the family groups back and particularly the Mitchell clan. We welcomed Elizabeth Gyar to her first outing with the group.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Poppy and Hugo Mitchell. In the 3.5 kilometres the improver was Peter Johnsen. Peter must be the favourite for the Broulee runner having the greatest number of personal best performances over the 3 distances for 2019.
In the 5 kilometres the improvers were Owen Gordon and Jason Domeny. Jason has shown remarkable improvement in his performances since starting with the group in October 2018.
It was pleasing to honour the performances of Stephanie Lunn, Tino Lopresti and Riley Beby, who performed with distinction in representing their schools at the regionals. Stephanie will now go on the state cross country championships.
