Tomorrow will see some of the club head out to Forbes for the Forbes Charity fun run with 5k and 10k runs available for the keen runners and a more sociable 2k for the walkers and the little ones. (You can still enter on the day between 7am & 8.30am) At home for those who don’t venture out to Forbes, Jack Brabham will be the place to be, for anything from 1 to 4 laps (7k).
Last Sunday saw 66 runners and walkers out at Gosling Creek doing their thing with Luke Thorley leading the way completing the 4.6k run in 21:28 to pick up the overall win.
