Broulee Runners have been running isolated for half a year today and it is appropriate to honour those who have completed all 26 runs in the series and they are as follows: Dave, Deb and Paige Connaughton, Robyn and Mike Kennedy, Bede Webster, Ross Wilson, Simon Wall, Matt Lambert and David McCann.
We welcome a new runner by the name of Tom Hofsteede. Tom is a work colleague of Simon Fearn and upon learning that Simon was 100 plus Broulee runner, he was determined to better Simon’s time for the 5 kilometres. In Tom’s first attempt, he managed to equal Simon’s time for the 5-kilometres of 22.43. He has now bettered Simon’s time.
There has been consultation with several people on the way back to getting together. At this stage we are looking at the middle of October and because difficulties in separating people by handling three events at the same time, it has been decided to run only the 5-kilometres initially. The other two events will be incorporated as conditions improve. People will still be able to run any of the three distances in their own time and place and have the results recorded.
We will be developing a COVID-19 Safety Plan using the NSW guidelines and looking at other plans adopted by athletic organisations. This plan will be reviewed by those who manage the event and then it will be made public to all Broulee Runners.
Above: Ross Wilson, one of the ten, who have completed all the Covid runs.
