ARF Review

Congratulations to all who participated in the Australian Running Festival last weekend. FIT was represented in four out of the five events: 5km, 10km, half-marathon and marathon.

This was the culmination of many weeks of training to get to the start line. A number of FIT women competed in their chosen distance for the first time, others came back for another round, and for others still it was just another training run en route to a bigger goal. For all of the FIT women involved, it was a great achievement and we congratulate all of you. 

The Rookie Runners this year competed in the 5km as their ‘graduation’ event. All did well, with Sarah coming home in a fantastic time of 28mins.

Thanks also to the wonderful coaches who got everyone across the line:

  • Beth, Donna, Kim and Angela for their support of this year’s rookie program.
  • Di Evans for once again working tirelessly with the full and half marathon programs.

Special mention to the large number of supporters out on the course on foot and on bikes all weekend. The runners really appreciated seeing you there.

The final event of the weekend was the celebration at The Mawson Club on Sunday afternoon, a chance to celebrate the achievements of all participants, their coaches and supporters.
