Whatever your plans are for New Year’s Eve, there will be runners meeting at Justin’s Park, Burleigh Heads for a 6:30am run. Some might be just getting home, some may have had 8 hours sleep. No matter how you’re feeling we’d love for you to join us for a run.
At least when you’re finished you’ll be able to say you’ve run every day of the year do far!
It’s a busy week for presents!
Happy birthday to runners celebrating their birthday’s this week:
Leanne Hines-Smith on Tuesday
Tamantha Haig on Thursday
Jason Sewell, and
John Hitchen on New Year’s Day
I hope there were no shared presents. You deserve more.
Boxing Day Run / Walk
Meet at the Binnaburra kiosk carpark for a 6:30am start.
There is a trail run of approximately 21 kms plus there are also several distances of walks available. Make sure you bring insect repellent, salt/liquid salt (for leeches), sunscreen. There is a kiosk that you can get brekkie at afterwards or alternately, BYO and enjoy brekkie in the park.
Allow around 1 hour to get to Binnaburra from Burleigh.
The Gold Coast Runners Club would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas. Whether you are enjoying a big feast or a small meal, just remember the best way to work it off is with a run!
Congratulations to Carol and Merv who recently ran in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series in Las Vegas.
Carol completed her half marathon in 1hr 48m 53s in very chilly weather and Merv did his marathon in a time of 4hr 41m. It was a twilight run which is a bit unusual.
A great experience for both.
Last Sunday was the Kurrawa to Duranbah run. Entrants had a choice of 30km or 50km and whichever one you chose, it was HOT!
Congrats to Jason Sewell who won the 50km and Keith McKay who came 4th in the 50km. Amanda Attard competed in the 30km event.
Well done guys!
Smiling because the finish line is in sight.
Damo...blind and ran 50km...an inspiration
Due to the Burleigh Run/Swim event we will be meeting at the corner of 4th Ave and the Esplanade, Burleigh Heads. We will meet at 6:15am for a 6:30am start.
As this Sunday will be our last Sunday run before Christmas, get into the festive spirit and wear a piece of tinsel or a Christmas hat or shirt. We’d love for you to stay for breakfast – BYO.
Happy birthday to Leonie Thompson and Paul Chamberlain.
Both celebrate their birthdays today – 12 December. We hope you have an amazing day!
The team had a great weekend with everyone doing their best under some trying conditions. We had some very hot days and of course plenty of flies. We had an early start every morning which everyone really looked forward to!
Day one started in Brisbane with 2 criteriums which was great to watch. When finished we headed off to Beaudesert for breakfast and the road relay to Rathdowny for lunch and then onto Boonah where we finished off with a Criterium. Then onto Warwick for the night.
Day two started at Swan Creek and we ran into Kilarney for breakfast then onto Warwick for lunch. Half the team did the criterium while the rest had to do the restart out of Warwick and run to Greenmount where we finished just on dark. A very long and hot day on the road. We got into Toowoomba quite late but made the most of it and ordered some food and brought it back to our cabins where everyone had a great time talking over the weekend so far.
Day three everyone was looking forward to the finish and those famous pies at Fernvale. But of course there was a bit of a road relay to complete along the way.
Thanks to everyone for making it a great weekend. I haven’t laughed so much! Well done to everyone for making the effort to wear some loud clothes.
Also congratulations to the following for recieving their badges for completing the event:
Sandra 25 years
Klaus 20 years
Peter Mc 10 years, and
Lee 10 years.
A great achievment.
