There were lots of “firsts” last night; first trail run, first marathon and for some, their first night run even. Congratulations for rising to the challenge and hopefully achieving your goals, whatever your chosen distance.
Huge thanks go to ALL of our volunteers. Lytia and Jess at sign on, Matt for compiling all our data Girls Run this Town at sign on and the start/finish area. Ralph and the Sunco Runco team, Steve and the BTR crew, and Neil, Terry and Eastyn all did an amazing job at the checkpoints looking after and encouraging the runners. Who knew potatoes could taste so good! Kat and Jason swept the course. Lily and Callum helped at the finish line and directed runners on the course, Pete Dwyer proved invaluable with the setup and Neil & Sharon helped mark the course.
A BIG thank you goes to Jas for doing such a wonderful job as MC. We know the runners appreciated the warm welcome you gave all of them as they crossed the finish line.
Thanks also go to the medics from Sunshine Coast First Aid Volunteers. You guys always do a fantastic job. And finally, thank you Josh and our sponsors The Athletes Foot, Infinit Nutrition for keeping everyone hydrated, Tony from Timing Wizards and the very talented Steve from SOK Images for capturing those special moments.
