20 September 2017



Great conditions for exercise attracted 39 starters to this evening’s event, which will be the second last before daylight saving kicks in and we move to a 5 o’clock start.  

We welcomed back Gary Matthews and Debbie Redman after a long absence.  
Debbie jumped in with both feet and tackled the 5 kilometres and she promises to improve with her next start.

Personal best times were recorded by Selby Johnston, Michelle McPherson and Julianne Domeny. Julianne continues to improve in the 5 kilometres and following on from her huge PB in the Moruya Town to Surf.

Andrew McPherson fresh from his appearance in the Blackmores Sydney marathon held last Sunday, ran with his family this evening. It was his first marathon and he finished with an excellent time of 3 hours and 23 minutes, he was placed in 342th position out of a field on 3,562 runners. Andrew has been a regular with the group since 11 February 2008 and has 143 runs to his credit. It is an activity for the family with mother Michelle, Nina and Declan all having more than 40 runs. Andrew commenced his preparation 20 weeks ago and this consisted of long bike rides and running. Being a family man, this entailed getting up very early for his runs and one of these was the full marathon distance of 42 kilometres. Although, pleased with his performance he is not sure if there will be another attempt. (Pictured are the McPherson family).

See you all next week at 4.30pm.

Hot temperature and strong winds did not stop 33 people from starting in this evening’s Broulee run/walk.  

The start was very congested with lots of people coming to the Mossy Point Headland to watch the smoke billowing from the Dunn’s Creek fire.

We welcomed Sophia and Lulu Lozi, Jackie and Jade Berry to their first run.

Personal best times were a struggle in the fierce winds.  Nevertheless, Anthony Miles managed to lower his time in the 5 kilometres by 7 seconds.

Morgan Pettit (pictured) was awarded his 30-run shirt this evening.  He started with the group at the beginning of February this year and since that time he has reduced his 5-kilometre time by more than 5 minutes.

Morgan was part of the Broulee runners winning team in the Moruya Town to Surf fun run held last Sunday.  Other members of the team were Gary Ashton, Riley and Daniel Beby.  A large contingent of the group participated (pictured) in this event and all had high praise for the professional manner in which it was conducted.

See you all next week at 4.30pm.

30 August 2017



52 people braved the cold southerly winds to contest the three distances on offer for the last Broulee run of the winter of 2017.

We welcomed three members of the Costin family namely Nancy, Sean and Nathan, and Kassi Lozi and Dallas Pirro from Sydney who joined the group.

Personal best times were hard to come by with the strong wind and cold conditions.
Nevertheless, Elani Van Der Weerdenburg, Cat Johnston, Liz and Jo Pirro managed to beat the odds and improve their times in the 2-kilometre event.

Dylan Van Der Meulen (pictured) was awarded his 30-run shirt this evening. It was actually his 41st run and because of his height, he had to wait till a special order arrived from our sponsors in Bali. Dylan started back in 2015 and has an excellent time of 20.27 to his credit in the 5 kilometres. He is one of a number of runners knocking on the door of the magic 20 minutes mark for the distance.

See you all for our first Spring run next Wednesday at 4.30pm.

The August winds were at their strongest for this evening’s run. This kept the numbers down to 33. Personal best times were recorded by Makayla Wade in the 3.5 kilometres and Harrison Gillighan and Mary Anderson in the 5 kilometres.

Special mention goes to Sunni West, who following on from his personal best times over consecutive weeks in the 2 and 3.5 kilometres tackled the 5 kilometres and recorded an excellent time of 28.52.

There is strong competition in the 5 kilometres as runners prepare for the Moruya Town to Surf, which will be held on 10 SeptemberThis is evident by the strong showing by Mary Anderson and Julie Wilkes.

Excellent conditions attracted 44 starters in this evening’s run. We welcomed Travis McGeachy to his first run, Travis ran a sensational time of 20.31 in his first attempt at the 5 kilometres and he was disappointed that he did not break the magic 20 minute mark.

Personal best times were recorded by Sunni and Cathy West and Travis Dunnett in the 2 kilometres.  Nev Madden and Tiffany Johnston in the 3.5 kilometres. Aaron Flood, Brock Gilligan and Tracey Denning in the 5 kilometres.

Ross Hayward (pictured) used this run as a warm up for this Sunday’s Sydney City to Surf 14 kilometres fun run.  His first attempt at this event was in 1990 and this Sunday will be his 25th appearance in this iconic event.  His personal best time of 71.46 was recorded in 1995.  Ross has been a regular Broulee Runner having started 31 October 2007 and he has 211 runs to his credit. He will be proudly wearing his Broulee shirt on Sunday.  Everyone at tonight’s run wished him well in his 25th appearance.
