Kiama Race Report

Four Rats travelled up to Kiama for the Classic “fun” run. It was a sunny but cool and perfect running day. The 14km run followed the coast track from Gerringong surf club to finish at Black beach Kiama. There were many small hills with 2 runners rumoured to have fast walked a couple of short steep sections. Two whales also put on a good show. Both runners had an enjoyable time with Nicola in on 1 hour 27 m and Bob in on 1 hour 34 m. They both crossed the finish line with smiles! 
The 10 km run involved 2 circuits passing the lighthouse 4 times with plenty of uphill and downhill. There were outstanding results for Gay at 50.06 minutes to be first in her age group and Maree on 60.4 minutes and second in her age group. Gay celebrated by partying that afternoon in Austinmer, while the rest enjoyed brunch from a local Kiama cafe. 
Cheryl Garin was there with 10 stitches in her foot from a recent surfing incident so could not compete, however provided sterling support by driving runners and taking photos. 

Apart from the Kiama Coastal Classic, there are a few races our Club members are interested in.
These include: Lake Gillawarna in July, Sydney Blackmores in September, Hume to Hovell (50klm) in October and Queenstown N.Z. in November.
