Bibra Lake Runs

Posted on

The City of Cockburn has moved their Bibra Lake 6k Fun Run to the 5th November, the same day as our Bibra Lake run. This is due to the timing of Council elections. However, as we had a confirmed booking, they are allowing us to go ahead with our run as long as we finish before their event starts.

We will be starting at 7.30am and need to be completely finished by 8.50am as their start is at 9am. If you would like to do the 12k and think you will take longer than 80 mins,  you can either opt to do the 6k instead or you can start at 7am. We will start a watch for 7am starters and adjust times accordingly.

Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. Added bonus – if you feel like making the extra effort you are welcome to enter the fun run as well afterwards (but note their fun run entries close online Friday 27 October).

Vale Ray Gimi

Posted on

We were shocked to hear the tragic news that Ray Gimi passed away suddenly last weekend – still wearing his kit after his morning run. Running was Ray’s passion. He was well liked by all of us who do the Sunday runs. He was a gentleman and a gentle man and was selfless in looking after his elderly parents while they were at home. Funeral arrangements will be posted when known.
