As runners and organizers were happy for a break in the weather, hundreds of people lined up at Jubilee Park on Sunday for a fun City2Lake race. They didn’t just enjoy the happy weather, but $ 50,000 was raised for Griffith CanAssist. Organizing Committee member Cheryl Wood called it a great result. “It exceeded our expectations, we didn’t even know if we would be able to hold the event, and we started the organization late,” Ms. Wood said. She said the success of the event was facilitated by sponsors who not only helped with costs but also participated in large teams: Proten had 30 runners, Flavourtech 18, and students and teachers of Tarboganga Public School participated in a fun track among many others. Just 32 minutes and 48 seconds from the start, Aidan Fattore was the first person to cross the finish line, followed closely by Eliza Starr, who was the first woman to cross the line in four minutes and nine seconds. The Victoria Hotel brought home awards when it came to raising $ 4,155 as part of an effort led by Talia Aramini. Meanwhile, new resident Rachel Reynolds set a new personal best for herself in her first City2Lake. Ms Reynolds won in her age group, which she said was “amazing”. This year she aims to run a 42-kilometer marathon on the Gold Coast – a point on the list. “This is the goal of the year, I wanted to do it last year, but because of COVID-19 I was not allowed to go to Queensland. The more you run, the further you want to keep running,” Ms. Reynolds told City2Lake. was a great opportunity to move a little further, and although she is familiar with Heartbreak Hill on Sydney’s famous City to Surf course, on Sunday she focused on consistency. “It’s a more mental game to make sure I can keep the same pace for the entire distance and that I didn’t go too fast,” she said. “I’m just happy to keep running and it was amazing that I ran so fast this morning. It’s a really fun day.” READ MORE CYCLISTS Open: Andrew Hingston and Elise Collier Jr.: Jack Shiripa and Sarah Bertollo RUNNERS 12 years and younger: Antonio Turin’s Sand Lyle Codema 13-17: Blake Milis and Matista Restea 53 Matisse 53 and Rachel Reynolds 56 to 65: Leon Scaliatis and Gina Sartar over 65: John Jones and Judy Rose Our reporters are working hard to provide local, up-to-date news for the community.
