27 July 2016

There were perfect conditions for the 31 starters in this evening’s run.  5 personal best times were recorded.  

Joy of achieving has not age limit.  Pre-schooler Makayla Wade's excitement was just as animated as Sandra Lunn on them both receiving a PB. Sandra Lunn is the mother of 4 much older athletic children and are all regular participants.

Broulee Runners Jayla Hancock-Cameron, Stephanie and Bridget Lunn performed with distinction at the regional athletic carnival held at Cooma on Monday.

Our photo this week captures our younger runners that participated. Well done to you all.

A number of runners are preparing for the Town to Surf fun run to be held in Moruya on 11 September. For more information visit

See you all next Wednesday at 4.30pm

26 people braved the cool overcast conditions to run in Wednesday’s Broulee Runners.

We welcomed Tessa Anne and Peter Huddy (pictured) from Tasmania visiting family.

Ziggy Clare ran a fantastic time of 14.42 to head home the field in the 3.5 kilometres.
He is representing the district in the State Cross Country Championship at Eastern Creek on Friday.

The star of the night was Andrew McPherson, who recorded a personal best of 20.50 in the 5 kilometres. Andrew has improved by almost 7 minutes over this distance since his first run in February 2014.

A big congratulations must also go to Paige Connaughton who competed in her first half marathon in Melbourne  last weekend. Paige was hoping to get her run done in under 2hours she accomplished this by running a 4.55min/km and came in at a very impressive time of 1hr49m41s.

Well done to all our runners see you next Wednesday at 4.30pm.

Snow on the mountains and ice in the wind at Mossy Point didn’t deter 40 people participating in this week’s Broulee Runners event.

We welcomed Nick Thorne to his first run.  Nick’s wife and three children participated and all were at the top end of their respective events.

Sarah Leach and her father Greg Leach on holidays from Canberra both recorded personal best times in the 2 kilometre event.

Daniel Beby recorded an excellent time of 17.38 for the 5 kilometres.  This follows his excellent time of 17.32 in the 5 kilometre Batemans Bay Park Run last Saturday.
He is returning to his top form after his recent illness and is setting his sights on closing in on Matt Johnsen record of 15.51.

Go the blues. See you all next week at 4.30pm.

Driving rain and gale force winds did not deter 22 starters in this evening’s Broulee run.

We welcomed Hannah and Damian Smith to their first run.

Lily Van Weerdenburg who is only 5-year-old, reduced her personal best by 36 seconds in the 2 kilometres event.  The very young have no fear.

Gabriel Kennedy is a regular visitor from Melbourne and he reduced his PB in the 2 kilometre event by 90 seconds.  This is an outstanding achievement in the atrocious conditions.

29 June 2016

This week the runners experienced perfect conditions for their winter run. We had 59 starters and of these an incredible 12 PBs the most notable of these were Michelle Mitchell and Stephanie Lunn  who both improved their times by over a minute each.

Was great to see all the families come along and run together. The Connaughton clan were all back in town and Paige who has been up from Melbourne for uni holidays for the past few weeks missed out on her PB from 2 years ago by 11seconds. 

Paul and Maureen Searson (pictured) have been coming along to the Broulee runners for the last couple of months. They have discovered triathlons and have been regularly participating in the enticer events at various locations and have found the running group to be a helpful addition to their training.

15 June 2016

The crisp clear conditions allowed for the runners to test themselves as of the 52 starters there were 15 personal best times.

It was family affair with improvements coming in pairs as Paul and Maureen Searson, Nina and Annika Thorne and Carissa and Steve recording personal best times.

James Dickinson and Tayah Hancock stormed home first and second in a strong field in the 2 kilometre distance.  Young promising athletes Stephanie Lunn and Shayne Hargraves also showed their class in this event.

Paige Connaughton on holidays from her studies in Melbourne showed that she is returning to her best form with an excellent run in the 5 kilometres with a few seconds from the best time set in twelve months ago. Paige is training for her first half marathon to be held next month in Melbourne, we look forward to hearing how you go.

Finally we have reached our shortest week of the year so it will be nice to see a little bit more daylight each evening from here on in.

Pictured are all our younger runners with lots of energy before their start.

See you next Wednesday at 4.30pm.
