Freezing cold conditions couldn't keep 118 keen runners from showing up at Lake Ginninderra this week. Amongst those were tourists from Merrimbula and one tourist as far as Wales. Thanks for visiting.
There were some amazing PBs from 23 runners, who carved up the course! The PBs could have been attributed to the support received from one of Gindy's favourite junior runners and volunteer, Caitlin Bowe.
