10 February 2016



The evening of 10 February marked the 9th anniversary of the Broulee Runners.  The first run was held on 7 February 2007 attracted 8 starters over 5 kilometres.

A decision was made to add shorter distances so in September 2008 a 3.5 kilometres distance was included and in October 2010 a 2 kilometres course was offered.
The latter inclusion was a master stroke as it opened the door to a wide range of people and is by far the most popular as it allows people to run or walk without being conspicuous and of course enjoy the event.

This evening is the 435th run and of these Dave Connaughton has completed 314.

This evening we had 44 starters and 6 personal best times recorded.

All competitors celebrated after the run with a birthday cake.

Lucy Hincksman, who is an outstanding junior athletic, equalled her personal best in the 2 kilometre.  Lucy is now resident in Canberra and has achieved great things in 2015.

6 January 2016


The weather must have known that it was time for the Broulee runners to start their weekly event as the persistent rain of the last three days stopped and 23 people turned up to run.

All ran and splashed through mud and deep water without complaint.

The four members of the Grant family, on holiday from Queensland participated, with father Gavin recorded a one second personal best time in the 5 kilometres.

Will Gold of Melbourne returned to run and we can expect the rest of the family next week.

We welcomed Maxine Plant as a new starter.  She moved to the district from Ballarat and showed great fortitude in turning up in such atrocious conditions.

In the Grant family photo in the front left to right is Myles, Byron and Rowan.  In the back is dad Gavin.

See you all next week at 5pm everyone welcome.
