The 46 starters were very fortunate not to have the lingering smoke in the air. Those with respiratory problems were able to compete without the difficulties confronting most people in the district.
We welcomed Jayden Lyttle from Brisbane, who ran an excellent time of 11.44 in the 3.5 kilometres. This time is only 3 seconds away from the record, which is held by our resident Hawaiian Ironman, Daniel Beby. Jayden is visiting relatives at Broulee and promises to come back and make an attempt on the record.
A personal best time in the 2 kilometres was recorded by Bonnie Lloyd-Jones. A personal best time in the 3.5 kilometres was recorded by Jasper Motyka and his brother Max equalled his previous best time over this distance.
Above: the start of tonight’s run. Runners have various ways of preparing themselves before the start.
