NSW Novice Championships
Posted Saturday 9 May 2009 by Michael Gentle

Thank you to every person who helped as a volunteer in making the event such a great success as we could not do it without your help and energy. Our event manager
David Beck
had everything organised for smooth working of the event. "Bob the Builder"
Kim Delaney
had the construction crew on site from about 6:00am so that everything was constructed well and truly ahead of time - then they had to pull it all down again after the event with last people away at about 6:00pm. The Gallagher clan did a superb job with the BBQ again - a sell out job.

We thank our donors - Rockdale City Council, The Athlete's Foot Hurstville, Bucton's Butchery and Quick Response Sports.

Tim Rowe 2nd in Canberra Marathon
Posted Sunday 19 Apr 2009 by Michael Gentle

In his marathon debut,
Tim Rowe
dominated the early stages of the Canberra Marathon with blistering pace, and quickly established a commanding lead. As the race progressed, the wind picked up and kept the temperature down, but the conditions were tricky with runners seeming to be always facing into a headwind.

Tim was passed at around the 40km mark by last year's Canberra Marathon runner-up David Criniti, a very experienced marathon and ultra-marathon runner, but held on for a strong 2nd place finish in a time of 2:27:01. Congratulations from everyone at St George.

As a part of his successful Pink Pain Train fundraising campaign, Tim has raised $6300 in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. This is the most raised by an individual in Canberra Marathon fundraising - another awesome effort.
