A very hot Wednesday night at Elephant Park a small group of 43 starters battled the conditions, with Adam Reeves outstanding as he set the fastest time of 11:26. Ella Lamrock was the fastest female as she stopped the clock at 14:56. Julie Chapman was the overall winner as she finished her 3 laps in a time of 17:04.


Runners need to get their entries in for this years’ Running Festival, which is on February 25/26. Early bird entries close January 26. There is an event for everyone from the Kids Pete’s Car Wash 2km, Hotel Canobolas 5km walk/run, Westfund 10km run/walk, Athletes Foot Half Marathon and JP Hotel Brokers Marathon.


If you don’t want to compete you can always volunteer some time to helping Stewart Vidler and his team organising and or running the event. There is a volunteers book at every club run, so get your name down and help out where you can.
