Yesterday we had our second Rachel’s Runners Fun Run for 2014 and as always it was a fantastic morning. We had a total of 42 runners register for the run over three different categories – Adult Female, Adult Male and Kids. All of our runners put in a huge effort and pushed themselves to and beyond their own personal limits. PB’s were smashed left, right and centre!

Time for a warm up!

The female category was taken out by our previous winner Amy and second and third went to Bronwen and Danielle. The male category had only 2 entrants as a few pulled out at the last minute. This left one of our runners’ husbands to take out the top prize and my lucky hubby came in second. As for the kids, our first 2014 event’s third place getter took home gold. Amy’s daughter came in second and another of our regular Saturday morning runners, Lauren, took out the kids’ bronze medal.

This time we had a barbeque breakfast afterwards which made for a lovely finish to a great community event. We continued our fundraising for beyondblue and ended up raising over $400 from this event alone! Such a fantastic effort!

An event such as this takes a lot of organisation and I could not do it without the support of all of the volunteers from our running group. For all of the Rachel’s Runners who helped out in some way I am very grateful and want to say a huge thank you! Also to my husband Michael who supports me constantly by running the household and looking after our boys while I am with the running group each weekend day – thank you xx
