Brisbane Running Festival, Sat Session, B2B

Brisbane Running Festival Wrap Up

Massive congratulations to all who participated on the weekend. Nearly everybody I have spoken to did a PB on what I hear was a reasonably hilly course,.....but then again, we had home ground advantage!!

A few mentions, Darrell came 1st in his age group with a 5min PB in the half marathon.
Matty C came 10th overall in the 10km, and Ben G, came 12th - well done gentlemen!!

We had a MASSIVE BRS turn out and heaps of amazing times, and as a result BRS won the Robert de Castella Team Trophy Competition. 

Robert De Castella Winning Gold in 1982

For this comp, teams were scored in a cross country format, where the lowest score wins.

Scores were calculated:
1. Overall position for the first 5 team members who finish each event will be aggregated
2. Each team participant receives 2 point credit which will be deducted from the total
3. Lowest score wins!!

We won a signed shirt by Robert de Castella! we will hold onto it for our end of year party for a worthy recipient!!

Well Done and Thanks BRS!
