Well who would have thought it  … a fun run in winter when it didn’t rain, and despite some members’ misgivings, two new course routes that reportedly blew everybody away!   Well done to all who were involved: our club members, our vast army of volunteers, our police and marshalls, our sponsors and supporters, and above else, everyone who snubbed their noses at the threatening weather and turned out for the event. They weren’t disappointed.
And what a template we’ve established for next year: our tenth consecutive scenic fun run and walk, with its own unique challenge – with $1.7 million already raised, to see if we can hit that magic $2million mark.
Special accolades MUST go to Ty Stokoe - the most amazingly capable organiser we’ve had yet.  He drove himself and us all hard, but importantly, made sure we had fun. Many others went ‘above and beyond’, too; but let’s just reflect on the fact that it was ultimately, a great teamwork effort.
We still need to finalise some of the results, and take into account a number of important key learnings.
But hey – it’s party time:  let’s give ourselves a break next week with our hosts, the Hotel Steyne (Friday 15th June) and then get on with it again!
