Broulee Run/Walk.  The star of the night was Matt Johnsen, who equalled the course record for the 5 kilometres with a sensational time of 15.51.  Matt set this time back on 16 April 2014.  Matt is making a serious attempt to lift his training in preparation for the Melbourne Marathon later this year.  Matt represented Australia at the World University Cross Country Championships in 2012 in USA and he ran in a number of other National Championships when he represented Lamar University whilst on an athletic scholarship in the USA. 

We welcomed Nate Toelleatkinson and Jayden Wong to their first run with the group.  We also welcomed back Louise Cox, having returned from her English home.   She has been a regular runner with the group having registered more than 50 runs.  

Personal best times in the 2 kilometres were recorded by Marcus, Benji and Neil Mackay.  In the 3.5 kilometres, Matt Johnsen’s dad Peter, recorded a personal best.  In the 5 kilometres Sam Selinger-Morris from Sydney improved on her previous time set in January 2018.

Cold winter winds kept the numbers down for this evenings Broulee run/walk.  We were able to welcome baby Alfie Mackay to his first outing being carried by his mother Eva.  We recruit them young and by the time he is five he will have close to 50 appearances to his credit.

Personal best times were recorded by the other Mackay family members in the 2 kilometres with Marcus, Benji and Neil all improving.  Brenton Cole was the other improver in this event.

Bernadine Lambert improved in the 3.5 kilometres and in the 5 kilometres Lauren Evans recorded her second personal best time in 2 weeks.  Her time of 20.25 was excellent in the conditions.

The two member of Skydive Moruya team in Chris Garcia and Daniel Rowen demonstrated that they can run as well as fly by recording personal best times in the 5 kilometres

This evening we had 40 starters and of those we had visitors from Melbourne and Canberra as some schools are on holidays.  We welcomed Chris Garcia, Daniel Rowen and Mick Lambert to their first run with the group.  Mick is a well-known identity in the Broulee Surf life saving movement and it is great to see him support the run.

Personal best time in the 2 kilometres were run by Isabella Lopresti, Jordan Hatcher and Audrey Knobel.  In the 3.5 kilometres Justine Beaumont improved her time as did her son Gabriel Kennedy in the 5 kilometres.  Both are regular visitors to Broulee from Melbourne and always compete in the event.  Owen Gordon ran another personal best in the 5 kilometres and he looks set to continue with this improvement.

The 5 kilometres was contested with a strong field with the top 10 placing being under 25 minutes. Clayton was the stand out with a time of 18.28 minutes.  He promises to return and test the local guns in Daniel Beby and Dan Lloyd-Jones.

The shortest day for the year has just gone and 40 starters in this evening’s run cannot wait for the days to get warmer and longer.  We welcomed Darren Drewsen and Jordan Hatcher to their first run with the group.  The Drewsen family filled the first three places in the 2 kilometres and I suspect the father Darren may have been closer to his children if not for a slip on the knotty path!

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Erin Drewsen, Liliana Murphy, Regina Knobel, Max Richards, Evelyn Johnston and Andrea Scroope.

In the 5 kilometres the star was Qwen Gordon with 87 seconds personal best time.  He credited this improvement to his new racing shoes!

51 starters participated in Wednesday’s Broulee Run/walk, which was the best field since the cold weather arrived in May.  It was pleasing to see the family groups back and particularly the Mitchell clan.  We welcomed Elizabeth Gyar to her first outing with the group.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Poppy and Hugo Mitchell.  In the 3.5 kilometres the improver was Peter Johnsen.  Peter must be the favourite for the Broulee runner having the greatest number of personal best performances over the 3 distances for 2019.  

In the 5 kilometres the improvers were Owen Gordon and Jason Domeny.  Jason has shown remarkable improvement in his performances since starting with the group in October 2018.

It was pleasing to honour the performances of Stephanie Lunn, Tino Lopresti and Riley Beby, who performed with distinction in representing their schools at the regionals.  Stephanie will now go on the state cross country championships.

The expected rain held off and 43 starters performed in warm conditions.  We welcomed Kirsty Dunn, Evelyn Johnston and Andrea Scroope to their first run with the group.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Freya and Sadie Dunn, Audrey Knobel, Jesse Jenkins, and Peter Johnsen.  The stand out over this distance was Mitchell Beby, who recorded his third personal best time in succession.  It could be he is following in his famous fathers’ footsteps, who to tackle the Kona Hawaiian Ironman in October.

In the 3.5 kilometres Vicki Whitter recorded her fourth consecutive personal best.  She is improving rapidly under the coaching of Gary Ashton, who encourages her by running with her each Wednesday.

Lauren Evans ran tonight fresh from a second placing in a half-marathon in Canberra last Monday.

5 June 2019


As the winter wind and cold starts to bite many regulars considered sitting in front of a warm fire more attractive than braving the conditions at this evening’s Broulee Run/walk.   

31 people of all ages and abilities tested themselves over the three distances.  In the 2 kilometres the front runners Tino Lopresti and Mitchell Beby showed their class in recording personal best times and putting a 3 minutes gap over the 3rd place runner.

In the 3.5 kilometres Regina Knobel and Vicki Whitter recorded personal best times.  This is Vicki 3rd personal best time in a row.

The star of the night was Andrew McPherson, who recorded his 200th run.  Andrew started at a modest level recording a time of 27.20 in his first 5 kilometres on 26 February 2014.  Since then he has recorded times of 7.03 in the 2 kilometres, 13.35 in the 3.5 and 20.03 in the 5 kilometres.  He has competed in numerous other longer distance endurance events with distinction.  His wife Michelle and children Declan and Nina are regular starters and they have a combined total of 194 starts between them.
