5 KILOMETRE EVENT

10 December 2014

This evening we had 42 starters with 4 personal best times and 6 new starters.

It is great that we can attract new participants each week.  Generally, the overall numbers are evenly split between female and male.  It makes no difference if you are an elite athlete or a casual walker.  People set themselves a target and they strive to better it.

Chris Wade achieved the target of 30 runs and was awarded his shirt.
The best performer of the afternoon was Heidi Van Weerdenburg with an improvement on her time of 43 seconds.

A number of our runners participated in a triathlon last weekend with distinction achieving personal best times and major placing in their age groups.

We also congratulate Pat Hammond, who completed the Ironman in Busselton, West Australia, last Sunday. Pat completed the 3.8km swim, 18km bike ride and a 42.2km run in 11 hours and 23 minutes. He placed 40th in his age group of 45-49 year olds.

We have our Christmas party after the run on the headland next Wednesday. Bring a plate and something to quench the thirst, everyone welcome.

3 December 2014

We had a washout this week with heavy rain and lightning hitting Broulee at 4.30pm and continuing right through to our start time.
Just a reminder that after our run next week, 10 December, we will have a Christmas get together after the run at the Tomakin club, everyone welcome, and then the following week, 17th December we will have a social catchup after the run on the headland. See you all next week fingers crossed weather will be better.

26 November 2014

This evening we had a variation of the theme birthday with Zed Clare inviting his mates to run before the party.

There were 48 starters with 4 new and 9 personal best times.

The strong southerly wind tested the condition of competitors.  Given the number of personal best times some handled the conditions better than others.  This was very evident with the performance of two of our more mature women in Bernie Lambert and Kim Young, who recorded excellent times in the 3.5 kilometres event.  At the other end of the scale 7 year old Stella Lloyd-Jones recorded a four and a half minutes personal best in the same event.

19 November 2014

This week we had ideal temperature except that the strong North Easterly wind made it difficult on the way back for the competitors.

We had 51 starters with 3 new people (Kim Young, Libby Earlam and Tina Smith) and 9 personal best times were recorded.

The outstanding performers were the young Dunn sisters in the 5-kilometre event, who knocked a combined total of 3 minutes 51 seconds from their personal best times. A big happy birthday to Abbey who was celebrating her 10th birthday and heading home after the run for a big baked dinner, you certainly earned it.

Carissa and Steve Morgan continue to impress in the 2 kilometres with another personal best time.  Carissa is one of our Special Olympic athletes and participation in the event each week with her father and mother is wonderful to see.

We will be holding two Christmas celebrations this year the first one after the run on the 10th December, we will meet at the Tomakin club in the bistro area. Then on the 17th we will have a small presentation and social catchup after the run, bring a plate to share. Everyone welcome.

Pictured is Graham and Jane Hinksman.

12 November 2014

This week we had excellent conditions that were conducive to good running as we had 60 starters and 6 new people and 13 personal best times.

The event is a family affair with 5 Floods, 4 Dolphins, 4 Leggotts, 4 Lloyd-Jones and 4 in the McPherson family.

Husband and wife John and Pauline Hicks are typical of the participants as they come along with no expectations and enjoy the experience and then set goals for improvement.  The community spirit generated by the event motivates them to improve and they have both set personal best time this week.

The top runner in the 5-kilometre event was Brendan Gorzalka, who is a new participant from Surf Beach.  He is looking to run the Canberra Marathon next year and wants to improve his short distance speed by regularly running in this event.

Congratulations to Scott and Taryn Carver who welcomed Emersyn Rose Carver last Saturday morning, another beautiful daughter for the couple.

Pictured is Brendon Gorzalka with son Isaac and regular runner Matt lambert who also achieved a PB.

See you all next Wednesday at 5pm.

5 November 2014

There were great conditions for running this evening.  We had 53 starters and there were 3 new entrants and 8 personal best times recorded.

The young runners were outstanding with Matthew Johnson and Lucy Hincksman recording exceptional times in the 2 kilometres to smash their personal best times.

Scott Carver (pictured) ran strongly in the 5 kilometres after his successful showing in the Coolangatta Gold held last Sunday.  His time in the gruelling event was 6 hours and 15 minutes the course comprising of a run, ski, paddle and swim. Scott was pleased with his effort and can now sit back and wait for his new baby to arrive within the coming weeks. We look forward to a new little Broulee runner.
See you all next Wednesday at 5pm. Everyone welcome.
