28 March 2018

The last run before the end of daylight saving ends was held in perfect conditions.  As a result, there were 15 personal best times.  In the 2 kilometres those to shine were Ebony and Jacqui Berry, Karlie Van Der Meulen, Julien Dunne, Sabrina Mallard, Helen Okey, Jye Barbara and Gill Bennett.  In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were James Dickinson, Jessica Flood, Tracey Denning and Lisa Robbins.  In the 5 kilometres the stand outs were Julie De Ernsted, Rob Ryan and Angie Gannon.

We were fortunate to have a visitor from France join us this evening.  Helene Lafarge is on holidays with friends and she received a warm welcome from everybody.  Aaron Dunn, a former resident of the district, has returned and ran the 5 kilometres for the first time.

Tracey Denning was awarded her 30-run shirt this evening.  She has shown considerable improvement since her first run on 9 February 2017 having reduced her 5 kilometres time by almost 7 minutes.  

Robyn Kennedy celebrated her 300th run this evening.  She has been actively involved with the event since the beginning as the recorder.  Her experience as a primary school teacher comes in handy with handling the very young when they demand that their place and name be recorded instantly!

Pictured are Tracey and Robyn.

Next Wednesday we revert to 4.30 PM with the end of Day Light Saving.

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.
