21 March 2018

The weather was cold, windy and wet for this evening’s Broulee Run/walk.  Yet 34 tough competitors completed the event.  Julie De Ernsted turned up to run having recovered from her triathlon last Sunday in Wollongong in 40-degree heat.  Her excellent place in her category was achieved by the hard work she put into her training.

We welcomed Bean Melgaard to his first run with the group.

David West ran a personal best time in the 2 kilometres.  In the 5 kilometres Anthony Miles and Rob Ryan improved.

Ruby Connor and Iona Kelly are two very talented young athletes.  Only one second separates them over the 2-kilometre distance.  Iona’s time of 8.10 is the bench mark at this stage.  As they are both only in primary school it is expected that this time will be bettered by one of them in the near future.

34 starters

14 March 2018

The prevailing North Easterly made the 82 starters in this evening’s Broulee Run/Walk bend their backs on the return journey.  We welcomed Rocco Lopresti, Carol Marsden, Helen Okey and Jill Bennett to their first run with the group.

The tough conditions tested all competitors and it was difficult to demonstrate improvements.  Nevertheless, in the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Rosie McPartland, Johanna Dunn and Cathy Kelly.  In the 5 kilometres the ever-improving Tracey Denning lowered her mark by 38 seconds.

One of the features of the event is the attraction of the very young to enjoy the fun and competition.  At the other end of the scale is the more mature participants, who also like to enjoy the challenge of the event and the social interchange.  Tonight’s event attracted the following participants from Banksia Village Victoria Fleming, Trish Eccles, Liz and Jo Pirro, Carol Marsden and Jill Bennett.

With the absence of our popular starter and timer Deb Connaughton, David McCann has taken on the task and proved himself an excellent replacement.  He is looking forward to handing the job over as soon as possible.

See you next week.

7 March 2018

Excellent running conditions produced 10 personal best times and attracted 3 new starters to the event.  New starters were Peter Johnsen, who joined his wife and two children in the event.  Also appearing for the first time were Jye Barbara and Johanna Dunn.  Jye aged about 2 started in a pram and was carried by mum down and up the knotty hill and he managed to run most of the way back.  The hard part was stopping him at the finish.

Personal best times were recorded in the 2 kilometres by Rosie and Darren McPartland, Iona Kelly, Julianne Domeny Tiffany Johnston and Cathy Kelly.  In the 3.5 kilometres the Loutitt boys Hayden and Keiran both did best times.  In the 5 kilometres Alan Andrews and Julie De Ernsted improved their times.

Maureen Searson was awarded her 30-run shirt and Richard Fisher completed his 200th run.  Richard did his first run on 14 September 2011.  Since that time, he has been a tireless worker for the event and each week he organisers the finishers.  He has made necessary repairs to the course when the elements have damaged parts of the track.

Pictured Maureen and Richard.

See you all next week at 5pm.

Perfect conditions greeted the 77 starters in this evening’s Broulee Run/walk.  We had 13 new starters in the event.  We welcomed the Kelly family of Mattea, Zahlia, Leora and Cathy.  The Berry family of Ebony, Geoff, Jade and Jacquie.  The Richards family of Leo and Felicity.  Also new were Nerrida Louttit, Kylie Keen and Clare Smith.  The newest recruit was 3 weeks old Lucinda Mitchell, who was carried by her mother Michelle over the 2 kilometres distance.  It is never too young to start preparing for the Olympics.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Iona Kelly, Poppy Mitchell, Bonnie Lloyd-Jones, Annie Johnsen.  In the 3.5 kilometres improvers were Hayden and Keiran Louttit, Cathy West and Bart Gannon.  In the 5 kilometres a personal best time was recorded by Kathryn Jeffery.

Two of our regulars competed with distinction last weekend in top level events.  Lauren Evans tackled the Snowies Trail Run Festival at Lake Crackenback last Sunday and was place 3rd in her category over the distance of 21 kilometres.  Dan Lloyd-Jones raced in the Gold Coast Triathlon on Sunday and was placed 2nd in his event.

21 February 2018

Excellent running conditions attracted 75 starters to this evening’s event.  It was great to see Matt Johnsen come back to run after almost 4 years.  He is an elite athlete having represented Australia in Cross Country running in the USA.  He is the record holder of the 5-kilometre event.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Ruby Johnsen, Benjamin and Neil Mackay.  In the 3.5 kilometres improvers were Dylan Holmes and Erin Domeny and the 5 kilometres those to achieve were Andrew Oberg, Louise Cox and Harrison Gilligan.

We welcomed to their first run with the group the McPartland family of Deakin, Rosie, Darren and Kelly, also Piper and Abbey Blacka, Isabella Loprespi, Savina Small, Kim Chivers, Vicky Haritos and Tony Whittaker.

Paul Searson and Dylan Holmes were awarded their 30-run shirts this evening.  This award is most significant for Dylan as his grandfather Peter Jackson and mother Sharee Jackson helped kick of the Broulee runners back on 7 February 2007.

The star of the evening was Chris Wade, who celebrated his 100th run.  The Wade family are great supporters of the event and Chris with his wife Rachael and children Patrick and Makayla have amassed a total of 448 runs.

Pictured are Matt Johnsen, Chris Wade and Paul Searson. See you all next week at 5pm.
