Race Report: Thorndon Park 6 Day Race, AdelaideDistance Run: 408.54kmsDate: 29th September - 5th October 2019   What an amazing event to be a part of. To be able to turn up at a venue with your personal clothing requirements and a sleeping bag with everything else taken care of is simply the best start to any event and takes such a huge load off your support crew who can then just focus on making sure you eat, drink, sleep, and run in the right proportions.          Starting at 10am on the Sunday, day one was about trying to find...

Race Report 7: Logan Running Festival, Berrinba Wetlands 14km

Bernice Fitzgibbon 14km Logan Running Festival Project 75 Race Seven Short Distance Running

Race Report 7: Logan Running Festival, Berrinba Wetlands 14km

Race Report: Logan Running Festival, Berrinba Wetlands, LoganDistance Run: 14kmDate: 22nd September 2019 This event was a must do for us after running it last year where we had such a great time. The course is a 7km loop through the wetland reserve which makes it perfect for the four distances run, 7km, 14km, 21.1km half, and 42.2km full marathon and with a 9hour cutoff it gives everyone a chance to challenge themselves without worrying about not making the distance before the course closes.   Our choice of the 14k gave Bernice an opportunity to extend her distance as she rebuilds her running with strength...

Race Report: Gold Coast Run Festival Distance Run: 100kmDate: 9th June 2019 The race where the women dominated and I came in last but happy to complete the distance and set an event age group time for 75 – 79 years.

Robert Dickison 30.40kms Apple Tree Stairs Marathon Challenge Project 75 Race Three Springbrook National Park

Race Report 3: Apple Tree Stairs Marathon Challenge, 30.40kms

Sun 14/04/2019 I had an invitation from Meredith to be part of the Apple Tree Stairs Marathon, so we headed off at 4:30am for Springbrook National Park arriving at around 5:30am. Now the format of the event was very simple, you could arrive and start any time after 5:00am, each lap you did down to the Woonoongoora walkers camp and return up the stair to Apple Tree park was recorded and the person with the highest number was the winner. The road to the park is very windy and Bernice decided to let her stomach settle before starting so I headed out on my...
