CWD 13th February 2021
Smiles all round at the Sunday club run.
Kinisha Roweth reports:
Last Sunday, 70 members travelled to Forest Reefs to the Baldwin’s hazelnut farm. Basil had marked out 3, 5, 8 and 12km courses which were all thoroughly enjoyed. Although, what I believe was more enjoyed were the hazelnut pancakes Jean kindly made for everyone post-run. Please remember to show your support by donating to Pancare as a thank you to the Baldwins. Pancare is a charity that funds advocacy, patient support and research for Australians with pancreatic, liver, biliary and oesophageal cancers.
The leading runners over the laps were:
3km – Female – Fiona Montgomerie 32:47, Rebecca Essex 35:13, Helen Roberts 35:17.

Tomorrow’s run (14 February) is at Pinnacle with 3km, 7km and 10km options. The 10km course turnaround point will be at the big rock. This course is good practice for the Volcanic challenge next month. Also putting out a reminder, that we are still operating under COVID-19 regulations. On Wednesdays, you need to start and finish your laps between 4pm and 5.45pm. On Sundays, you must start between 8.30am and 9am. On both days we are still encouraging members to arrive, run and depart.
