Trent Brown was also recognised on the day for completing 25 club runs.

Greg Shapter was the overall handicap winner running the three laps in 18:02.

Understandably there were no PB’s set under the tough conditions.


This Sunday the club run will be held at Bulgas Road starting at 9am with distances of 3km, 5km, 10km and 14km.

With the current weather conditions currently being experienced, both temperature and air quality, runners are reminded to run / walk or don’t run, to the conditions and to keep hydrated.


A reminder to think about entering the Orange Running Festival in 2020 (Held on March 7 & 8 at Gosling Creek). There is an event for everyone, from the kids 2km on the Saturday afternoon to the 5km, 10km, Half Marathon and Marathon on the Sunday morning. Also the committee will be looking for volunteer helpers prior to and during the event, so please put your hand up to help in the New Year, or contact Mike O’Mara for more information.
