BRS and our runners have had a big year!! Here is an opportunity to reflect, remember, & celebrate our achievements!
February....it all started with a LAUNCH!
We had over 40 Runners attend to find out about our year that was ahead and all about our sponsors! It set the tone for the year to come!
March....it was all about PARKRUN!!
With your help, you provided a week of volunteers and a month of BRS sponsored Park Runs. Thanks to all who helped out!
April....it was all about our Beginner Group
This year was the first time ever we have run a beginner specific program on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings! April was all about running technique and confidence for their Graduation in May at the St Lucia Rotary Run.
May....it was all about our Tough Mudders
2013 saw our mantra of GET TOUGHER IN 2013 culminate with the start of our 13 week lead up program to the first QLD based Tough Mudder! We conducted two goal sessions at Bellbird Grove to prepare out mudders for what lay ahead! Our weekly run and gym sessions were always tough, but rewarding!
June....it was all about BRS On Tour Phuket!
A small, gutzy group of BRSers headed to Phuket to complete one of the most humid events possible!! all finished in style with smiles on their faces and then enjoyed a relaxing holiday!
July....it was all about GOLD COAST Festival
Gold Coast Marathon Festival is always our biggest event of the year! We have over 50 BRSers participate in a variety of events over the weekend!
August....Tough Mudder Go-Live
What an amazing experience! All our Tough Mudders were so well prepared hey blitzed the course, enjoying everything Tough Mudder had to throw at us! (well maybe not the Arctic Enema!!)
September....was all about Fast Track
For the third time, we entered teams in the Spring Fast Track Series!
BRS certainly excelled!!! Matt C winning fastest male in the series, BRS 1000s in Action won the 8km team event and BRS United ran away with the most improved team over the 4 events!! Well done!
October....was all about STUFF!!

2. We had the pleasure of getting a podiatrist on board for BRS - QLD Orthodics and Podiatry
3. We had our 5km time trial!!!!
November....was all about the GREAT Tent Raiser
On Saturday 16th November, BRSers, friends and Family rallied together for our Urban Orienteering event! Thanks to our sponsors and Matt's fantastic Orienteering organisational skills, the day was a GREAT success!! We raised $800.00 which we were able to use with our existing BRS savings to purchase our new RIPPER TENT!!!! we can't wait to unveil it this year!
December....was all about Mt Tamborine & XMAS Party!
We tackled the Tour de Tamborine Event for the first time as a BRS Event! Our BRSers smashed the muddy, slippery 15km and 8km Trial runs....backing up Sunday for a road cycle or road run event!
