The Twilight Run Wrap UP
A big congratulations to everybody who took part in the Twilight events last Sunday. We won the 'biggest' team award with 25 BRSers competing in the 21km, 10km, 3km, 1km events, beating our closest rival by 8 runners! Well done and a sensational kick off to the running season.
Here is a wrap up of the results:
6 BRSers took part in the 21km event and for 4 of them it was their first ever 1/2 Marathon. Darrell hit his goal time coming in at 1hr36mins, great stuff. Matt Shepherd competing in his first 21km, after a PB for the first 10km, he finished strongly recording a 1hr 42mins time. According to the official results, this gave him 6th place in the 18-29 FEMALE category (what the?) well done Matt.
Melissa competing in her first distance run of the season finished well. Peter, Andrew and Michael all finished their first 1/2 marathon in style. A sign of things to come!
13 BRSers competed in the 10km event. There were many personal bests recorded on the day and even a first 10km event for many.

Bill's New Adventure
On Monday night we had a dinner to say farewell and good luck to Bill, one of our favourite BRSers. He has improved out of sight over the last 5months and we hope he continues smashing out the KMs in steamy North QLD. Best of luck to Bill and his family.
