EDITORIAL REPORT FOR CWD Saturday 12th March 2022

Kinisha Roweth

Amidst the success of the Orange Running Festival, the committee, and the volunteers have to be thanked and congratulated for pulling off such a wonderful event. An applause must go to all of the race podium finishers, the age group winners, and those that got PB’s. Special mention though must go to the Achilles Runners, their guides and to parents like Kelly Gleeson who shared their love of running with her son in the 5km, you guys are extraordinary.

It was a humid afternoon for 48 members to run and walk around Wednesday’s Elephant Park track completing 1, 2 or 3 laps. Top three males were Jack Daintith 10:08, Brad Simmons 11:18 and Mark Thomas 11:19. Completing the top three ladies were Danielle Klingberg 13:24, Yonneka Hill 14:11 and Samantha Pluymers 14:51.

Personal bests were recorded this week by Will Robinson 11 secs, Madeline Hill 4 secs, Yonneka Hill 5secs, Ruth Brown 2 secs and Merissa Horne 23 secs.

Congratulations to our achievement medal receivers this week: Will Robinson 25 club runs and Yonneka Hill 50 club runs.

This Sunday’s run location is Endeavour Oval, with the start between 8:30am and 9am. The loop distance is approximately 2.5km and you have the choice to complete the loop 1 to 4 times. Please check the website for more course information. As a thank you for organising, volunteering and competing in the running festival, this Sunday there will be a barbeque at Endeavour oval for members to enjoy after the run.

Wednesday runs will commence at 4pm and you can run any time after that as long as you are finished by 5:30pm.

Memberships are due for renewal on the 1st of April, these are 6-month registrations. To renew your membership please go to the link of the website. Runners club will continue to give you one month’s grace, as we usually do, which means you can still run during April and receive results, but you will not be covered by Athletics NSW insurance until you have paid your membership.
