Four of the Broulee Runners contested the 30-kilometre Coastal Classic last Saturday. The course is along the expansive coastal fringe of the Royal National Park south of Sydney. The adventurous four were Tori, Gill, Mirella, and Ren. They have been training hard and are part of Tori’s Hennig’s regular Sunday training group. Organisers say "Despite the change in event date this year from September to December you couldn’t have scripted a better day for fast times. The southerly tailwind was just the icing on the cake! It seemed that every second runner set a PB!"
The overall first placed Male runner was Brodie Nankervis who set out on a mission and didn’t let up all the way up the coast, finishing in 2:12:47, second place was Josef Mcgrath in 2:17:01 with James Nipperess in third in 2:18:00. All three podium getters were quicker than the 2020 winner showing how fast the course was.
It was a tight tussle among among the top Female runners, Greta Truscott (2:45:20) in 2nd with Katie Mahoney (2:46:30) in 3rd. They both followed home the overall Female winner Stephanie Auston who finished in 2:42:57.
Congratulations to Tori Hennig winner her age group in a time of 04:08:16
