Runners defy the heat

Warm, still conditions (warm is being kind…it was hot!) greeted our 43 runners this morning for our first Shepparton Runners Club, 3km handicap for 2021.

“It was great to see lots of new runners along with a stack of familiar faces,” said Chris Armstrong, SRC coach.

“A special thank you to our volunteers who helped set up the course, acted as marshals, helped organise the start/finish area, finish barcodes, pack up/clean up, results, timing and live streaming. A fair bit goes into getting these mini events happening and without your help it would certainly make things pretty tough.

“Thank you to Intersport Shepparton for your generous sponsorship with not only all the vouchers, but also for giving our members 10 percent off in store on all of their purchases as well!

“It was great to see all the competitive juices flowing again, while the fitness levels may not necessarily be at the level you aspire them to be, the encouragement, competitive spirit and camaraderie were all at peak levels,” said Chris.

The handicaps are open to SRC members and non-members. These events are a great chance for any-one to come down and have a try. Everyone has a shot of winning. If anyone wishes to join the Shepparton Runners Club, please visit sheppartonrunnersclub.com.au/join-us
