This week 158 people ran, jogged and walked the course on a chilly but beautiful morning. With a dusting of snow on the Brindabella Mountains visible from the park, it was great way to start the weekend. This week we had 9 first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 10 volunteers: Belinda, Anita, Debra, David, Darren, James, Claire, Andy, Jacqui and Andrew. We thank all these people that gave up their run to make today possible.
Congratulations to Olivia and Tegan Roberts on their 100th and 200th run.
