What was happening?
Highly motivated Y Striders assembled at Elizabeth Quay, Perth on April 7th to participate in the Bridges Fun Run. The WA Marathon Club organises this event and our 11 entrants were part of the capped number of 2000 contestants.
Leonie and Jennie T competed in the 5 kilometre run. Both performed very well. Leonie ran a good time of 34:23 minutes. Jennie T interspersed running and walking and she is well on track with her running goals.
There were 9 Y Striders running the 10 kilometre course. This was from Elizabeth Quay, across The Causeway, along the South Perth Foreshore and then across The Narrows Bridge back to the start.
All runners were happy with their times and some highlights were: David M who completed the run in the excellent time of 55:34 minutes. This was his first ever fun run! And, after an extended break from running, Joan d C completed the event in 60:28 minutes. Well done Joan.
Also competing in the 10K run were Bill, Martin, Marjorie, Joanne S, Kay, Terrence and Eva. Chris was team support, taking photos and managing the gear.
Congratulations to all participants. This was a great team effort with some excellent personal results.
