This year the Kurrawa to Duranbah event was rebranded to the Gold Coast 50km. This was a key lead up event for us for the BRS On tour now only 3 weeks ago!
We had one competitor in the ultra marathon, Matt C who in his first 50km event, smashed the course and ran strongly to come in second 3hr 25mins and winning his age group.
We had several participants in the 30km event who all finished and finished well! Nick, Matt W, Andrew, Dan, Bridget, Irene, Janet, and Andy D. Nick came in first in his category. Well done all.
We had Will and Sean participated in the 50km relay running 25km each. We also had heaps of 15km runners using it as their half marathon lead up for Cadbury. Anita, Jill, Lisa, Jan, and Michelle Mac.
It was crazy conditions with all the rain, but it actually made for pleasant running.
A great event to finish the BRS year on a HIGH!!
