Broulee Runners August 5th 2020

We are now in week 18 of the Broulee Runners isolated series and under these strange circumstance runners and walkers are still able to test themselves against the clock. As at this Wednesday evening we have 24 results posted.

The champion of the week is David Connaughton (pictured) who has clocked 500 runs as a Broulee runner. Dave’s first run was more than twelve years ago on 27 February 2008. Then he ran the 5 kilometres in 26.37. His personal best time is 22.44 which he set in May 2012. He is still able to run the distance in 24 minutes. Dave has completed all of his runs over the five-kilometre distance and his determination has been shown on many occasions by his will to finish even if injured during his run.
