Well done to everyone who completed this year’s Patron’s Trophy.
The Women’s contest was closely fought to the end with Sue Coate beating Carmel Meyer by the smallest of margins, just 7 points.
As expected David Carr took out the Men’s trophy, but all credit to Colin Smith for his outstanding second place.
Full results will be in the forthcoming TFNL.
Xmas Gift Run
Reminder – our Christmas Gift Run on Christmas Eve is a bit different…
…it’s a party!
The Run/walk is not timed or a set distance – you can do whatever suits you!
Starts at 7.30am so you don’t have to rush
All members welcome to come along!
Come dressed in your Favourite Festive garb (there will be prizes for best costumes!)
Following the run the Christmas elves put on a wonderful Festive morning tea spread!
(special thanks to Elaine and all her merry helpers)
To join in the festivities please bring a present (worth $10) to put under the gum tree!
These are given out during the party in age groups called at random – so everyone who brings a present will get to collect one!
Please Note: Sunday Runs continue but there is a two week break in
Track and Field after Christmas – resuming on 9th and 11th January
The Committee would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and safe holidays!
Recognise Melanomas – important news from Cancer Council
Warning signs of potentially deadly skin cancers – pale melanomas – have been revised by Cancer Council Australia. Fast-growing, these small pinkish nodular melanomas can erupt in weeks and quickly become aggressive. Men in midlife, particularly those over 60, are at especial risk.
Now it is SUMMER our Sunday runs will start at 7am so don’t forget to set your alarm a little earlier! (from 3 December)
