27 February 2019

There was a special occasion in this evening’s Broulee run/walk as we celebrated Deb Connaughton’s 300th run.  Most Wednesday’s she does her run solo before the start as she is the starter and time keeper.  Because of the special occasion she started with the pack.  Deb first run was on 27 February 2008 and she was joined by husband Dave and daughter Paige and Son Josh.  Between them they have competed in 1024 of the events.  This will be a record that will be difficult to better by another family.  As well as starter Deb is the media person and she is instrumental in attracting many people to the event.

Something must have been good in the air over the Mossy Point Headland as of the 60 starters in the run/walk there were 12 personal best times and 9 new starters.

We had Mark Prentice from England and Mick Carr from Melbourne have their first run.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Lachlan, Willow and Brenton Cole, David West, Robyn Edenborough and Evie Theodore.  In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Garran Carnall, Justin Murphy and Ross Wilson.  In the 5 kilometres the stand out were Louise Cox and Angus Murphy.

Broulee Runners competed with distinction as the Husky Triathlon last weekend.  The stars were Dan Lloyd-Jones, Adrian Connor, Gerard Van Weerdenburg, Julie De Ernsted, Anthony Miles and Monty Lloyd-Jones.

Special mention goes to Lauren Evans, who finished second in the Jindabyne half marathon last weekend.

20 February 2019

Excellent conditions with virtually no wind helped the 69 starters achieve 13 personal best times.  There were two new competitors in Clayton O’Brien and Owen Gordon.  It was Clayton’s first look at the difficult 5-kilometre course and he ran an excellent time of 18.18.  This places him at equal 9th fastest time in the 12-year history of the event.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Declan and Nina McPherson, Jordan Carter and Kate Patyus.  In the 3.5 kilometres the improvers were Yma and Garran Carnall, Justin Murphy, Ross Wilson, Mirella Granata, Audrey Knobel and Peter Johnsen.

In the 5 kilometres the improvers were Angus Murphy and Jason Domeny.  The Murphy boys (father and son) continue to impress each week as this is the second week in a row that both have recorded personal best times.  Jason has taken over the title of the Broulee Runners PB Man with his rapid improvement over each of the events.

The Knobel family were proud to introduce their matriarch, who is on a visit from Germany.  She looked after baby Lotte, who is normally carried by Regina over the 2 kilometres.  This allowed Regina to run a personal best time in the 3.5 kilometres.

13 February 2019

The Broulee Runners celebrated its 12th birthday this evening.  On the 7 February 2007 eight people started an event that continues to grow and tonight is the 590th run.  The people that helped to start this concept were Liza Martini, Robyn and Mike Kennedy.  A few weeks later Dave and Deb Connaughton came along and both have made major contributions.  Deb is always there as the starter and she promotes the event on Facebook and the Bay Post.  Dave, by his photographs and participation, having competed 440 times.  Special mention must go to Richard Fisher and Nev and Jill Madden, who are excellent contributors to the running of the event both in the earlier times and today.

Tonight, we welcomed Billie and Amy Booker and Ken Cox to their first appearance at the run.

Elani Van Der Meulen and Josh Connaughton received their 30-run shirt.

In the 2-kilometre personal best times were recorded by Erynn and Emma Carter, Anna and Molly and Richard Johnson.  In 3.5 kilometre the improvers were Justin Murphy, Ross Wilson, Meg Phillips and Jesse Jenkins.  In the 5 kilometres the stand out was Angus Murphy.

6 February 2019

Ideal summer weather greeted the 62 starters in Wednesday evening’s Broulee Run/Walk.  We welcomed Evie and Rachael Theodore and Alan Fitches to their first run with the group.  Hugh Gould from Bathurst performed well with his feet clad in thongs, which he confessed proved difficult in going down the slope covered in tree roots.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Jonathon Antoniak, Alexis Carver and Beau Theodore.  In the 3.5 the star was Jesse Jenkins, who improved by more than 2 minutes.

We farewelled Alan Andrew, who is moving to Bowen in North Queensland for work.  Alan has 26 runs to his credit and he promises to return to obtain his 30-run shirt.

See you all next week at 5pm.
