Last Sunday, 61 members made it out in the misty, cloudy weather to run/walk at Bloomfield golf course. The track was a 2km loop with the option to do 1 to 5 laps. Although the grass was spongy is some places due to the rain, it was a very enjoyable run for all.
The leading runners in each distance were:
2km – Female – Kelly Jurd 12:11, Mindy Smith 16:22, Rose Holway 18:42.
Male – Mike Cooper 10:01, Craig Penrose 11:24, Gary Holway 18:42.
4km – Female – Milla Jurd 20:28, Penny Chandler 21:30, Belinda McCauley 24:26.

On Wednesday, we were lucky with the rain stopping earlier in the day, this meant that 68 members were able to run or walk around the track at Elephant Park completing 1, 2 or 3 laps. Top three males were Peter Finlay 10:18, Jack Daintith 11:20 and Rikky Bangert 11:11. Completing the top three ladies were Leanne Corcoran 11:44, Nicola Blore 12:40 and Courtney Hayes 14:19.
Personal bests were recorded this week by Nicola Blore 19s, Samantha Pluymers 29s, Courtney Hayes 1m2s and Michael Pantehis 21s.
