12 December 2018

Strong North Eastly winds helped the 58 starters in this evening’s Broulee Run/Walk.  However, on the way back they had to struggle to move forward.  Never the less there were 8 personal best times recorded.  In the 2 kilometres Tino Lopresti, Sean Costin and Liliana Murphy improved.  In the 3.5 kilometres the stand out performances were by Bridget Lunn, Angus Murphy, Damien Kennedy and Yma Carnall.  In the 5 kilometres Jason Domeny improved his time.  Jason only started with the group on 17 October and since that time has improved on his time in each of the 3 distances he has completed.

We welcomed Kaylee Denys and Deb McCartney to their first run with the group.  Andrew Oberg and his daughter Jacqueline from Goulburn made a welcome appearance.  We were also pleased to welcome Damien and Judy Kennedy back from Indonesia after two years away from the run.  They sponsor the 30-run shirts.

5 December 2018

Excellent running conditions attracted 49 starters to Wednesday’s Broulee Run/walk.  We were pleased to welcome Kevin Cadiou and Bep Fouchet, who are visitors from France and friends of Helen Okey.  Liliana Murphy had her first run and she makes up the third member of the running Murphy’s.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Annie and Jackson Carrol and also Hallie Wignell.  In the 3.5 kilometres new best times were recorded by Justin Murphy, Nev Madden and David West.  In the 5 kilometres the honours were shared by Garran and Yma Carnall, who both improved on their previous times.

Roz Hayward (pictured with husband Ross) celebrated her 100th run this evening.  She is an inspiration to her family with at least 15 members of family having participated in the event.  Roz’s first run was on 24 June 2015.  She was encouraged to participate by husband Ross, who started back in 2007 and has completed 243 runs.

We will have our Christmas party on the 19 December after the run.  Bring along a plate to share and your preferred beverage and we will gather on the headland for a small presentation and a social catchup. Everyone is welcome.

See you all next week at 5pm.

28 November 2018

Near record rain and the accompanying wind did not dampen the enthusiastic 21 athletes from participating in this evening’s Broulee Run.  History has shown that no matter how bad the conditions people will come and as usual they perform with distinction.

In the 3.5 kilometres Jason Domeny recorded his third personal best time in as many starts over this distance.  Also, Angus Murphy showed that he is an excellent mud runner with an improvement of 43 seconds.

In the 5 kilometres Bede Webster recorded a personal best time.  His secret is to run bare footed and those who purchase the most expensive running shoes may consider this as an alternative in their quest for excellence.  Greg Whipp ran an outstanding time of 21.02 in the 5 kilometres to improve by 147 seconds.  Deb Connaughton ran an impressive time of 25.49, which is only 28 second off her best time over this distance set in 2008.

21 November 2018

The warmer spring weather tested the condition of the 49 starters in this evening’s Broulee Run/Walk.  We welcomed Archie Gilligan to his first run.  His older brothers Vaughn and Harrison are among the elite of the group and young Archie has many years to better their times.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Alba Van Der Meulen and Regina Knobel.  In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Angus Murphy, Jason Domeny and Bruce Dickinson.  In the 5 kilometres Garren Carnall was very impressive with a 3 minute and 13 seconds improvement.  His wife Yma was the first women home in the 5 kilometres with a time of 27.46.

14 November 2018

The rain held off and the athletes came out to play.  47 people ran and walked the 3 courses on offer at the Broulee Run/walk.  We welcomed Deanne Brennan from Canberra for her first run with the group.  Also, Aiden O’Leary and the Murphy boys Angus and Justin made their first appearance.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Audrey and Regina Knobel, Nick and Ben Hall and Emily Dickinson.  In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Matt Johnsen and Jacquellyn O’Leary.  In the 5 kilometres the stars were Isabelle Starmer and Greg Whipp.

This evening Matt Johnsen and Gerard Van Weerdenburg were awarded their 30-run shirts.  For both it has been a long journey for both men.  Matt’s first run with the group was back in 2012. He then travelled to America on an athletic scholarship where he performed with distinction. Since returning to the district he has been active in the promotion and coaching of athletics.  Gerard also had his first run in 2012 but injury, work and horses hindered his appearances.  He is now back with a vengeance and is about the compete in a triathlon.

7 November 2018

The Melbourne Cup had the rain so it was only fitting that the Broulee Runners had similar conditions.  Being of a lesser standard of race the rain continued before and during the run.

It is interesting that the only ones to appear are the thoroughbreds, who all tackled the 5 kilometres.  They ran through the wind, mud and ankle-deep water.

The star of the event was Lauren Evans, who improved her personal best by 52 seconds.  This is an outstanding performance under such adverse conditions.

Thanks to Nev Madden, Richard Fisher and David McCann for standing around in the rain to help record the times for the runners.

31 October 2018

The numbers of young runners in tonight Broulee Run/Walk were down because with Halloween they decided that “Trick and Treating” was more fun.  Never the less there were 51 starters participating in ideal conditions.

We welcomed Matt Stevens to his first run with the group.

In the 2 kilometres Personal Best times were recorded by Hallie Wignell, Jo Pirro and Annette McPartland.  In the 3.5 kilometres Tracy Denning and Tania Dorney were the improvers.  In the 5 kilometres Bede Webster was impressive in edging closer to the magic 20-minute mark.

The 5 members of the Domeny family performed very well and in particular, the man of the house, Jason tackled the 3.5 kilometres and managed to better his wife’s best time by 34 seconds.

Anthony Knobel was rewarded with his 30-run shirt.  Anthony normally carries baby Lottie.  However, to mark the occasion he ran his first 5 kilometres event in an impressive time of 23.47.

See you all next week at 5pm.
