Excellent running conditions attracted 75 starters to this evening’s event.  It was great to see Matt Johnsen come back to run after almost 4 years.  He is an elite athlete having represented Australia in Cross Country running in the USA.  He is the record holder of the 5-kilometre event.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Ruby Johnsen, Benjamin and Neil Mackay.  In the 3.5 kilometres improvers were Dylan Holmes and Erin Domeny and the 5 kilometres those to achieve were Andrew Oberg, Louise Cox and Harrison Gilligan.

We welcomed to their first run with the group the McPartland family of Deakin, Rosie, Darren and Kelly, also Piper and Abbey Blacka, Isabella Loprespi, Savina Small, Kim Chivers, Vicky Haritos and Tony Whittaker.

Paul Searson and Dylan Holmes were awarded their 30-run shirts this evening.  This award is most significant for Dylan as his grandfather Peter Jackson and mother Sharee Jackson helped kick of the Broulee runners back on 7 February 2007.

The star of the evening was Chris Wade, who celebrated his 100th run.  The Wade family are great supporters of the event and Chris with his wife Rachael and children Patrick and Makayla have amassed a total of 448 runs.

Pictured are Matt Johnsen, Chris Wade and Paul Searson. See you all next week at 5pm.

14 February 2018



The 39-degree heat of the day made everyone think twice about coming to this evening’s Broulee Run/Walk.  However, 20 minutes before the start the southerly buster arrived with its powerful wind testing the resolve of those 25 dedicated athletes, who arrived for the event.

We welcomed Peter Clarke from Canberra.  Peter is an experienced marathon runner and was able to give advice to the aspiring Broulee Marathon novices.

The star of the evening was Anthony Miles, who reduced his 5-kilometre time by 51 seconds.  This is on top of his excellent run at last Saturday’s Batemans Bay Park run where he cracked the 20-minute mark.

It was great to see the very young Van Der Meulen sisters Alba and Elani brave the conditions to participate with their father Dylan.

See you all next week at 5pm.

7 February 2018






The 65 runners seem to cope well with the windy conditions in this evening’s event.  Isabella Lopresta had her first run with the group and we welcomed back Andrew Oberg from the Goulburn Runners Club.

In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by mother and daughter Annie and Ruby Johnsen, Milly Shanahan Jacqui and Ebony Berry.  In the 3.5 kilometres Bart Gannon improved on his previous times.  In the 5 kilometres Andrew Oberg and Alan Andrews were the big improvers.  Alan has had 4 runs and he improves with each appearance.

Today we celebrated the 11th birthday of the event, which started on 7 February 2007 with 8 starters over the 5 kilometres distance.  This event has inspired some to achieve at higher levels.  Young talent have moved on to National track athletic level and currently there is Anthony Miles preparing for 100-kilometre event later in the year and Nev Madden and Morgan Pettit aiming for the Canberra Marathon in April.  Others like Daniel Beby and Adrian Connor are testing themselves at the extreme level with the Iron Man event at Port Macquarie in April.

See you all next Wednesday at 5pm.
