Run Monash Fun Run and Christmas BBQ - 3rd December 2013

Last Tuesday 3rd December, we had a record breaking 85 people turn up for our special 'fun run' and BBQ night.  I think everyone who was present will agree that it was a hugely successful night and lots of fun!

The weather gods were extremely kind (again!) and over 70 of us joined in the fun run.  The Run was a 2k handicap event – with handicaps based on our runs in Time Trials during the year. Special thanks to Steven for sorting out the handicaps.  Placegetters were:

1 Shenjun

2 Peta

3 Ken

4 Alice

5 Len

6 Diana

Well done all!

We celebrated the run with a great BBQ afterwards, with big thanks to Chris for organising!  Thanks also to his terrific helpers on the night in setting up, cooking etc – including John Bonfadini, Paulina, Amanda, Ben, Manoj, & Kim

Also special thanks to Peter (Bencey) for generously providing the sweets (Ice Cream) & Paul Marr for the Veggie Burgers.
