“Keep on Track”
Wow! What a fantastic day! Congradulations to all the athletes who competed today, of all distances and ages, you made the event a success! I hope it really was a ‘fun’ run, that you were able to check out the view from the rail trail along the way, and that you will be back next year! I wish to thank all the volunteers, helpers, parents, sporting clubs manning drink stations, BCB members,and the sponsors. Major sponsors that have made this event possible are David and Cath Weekes of Ausworkwear & Safety Pty Ltd Wonthaggi, CFMEU Community Support Group – Construction and General Division Victorian Branch, Luke Zoanetti of Bass Coast Podiatry, Cheryl Carr of Hotondo Homes Phillip Island, Caroline Allen of Hotondo Homes Inverloch, Abicor Southern and Bass Coast Shire Council. Our funrun ambassador, Susie Power, was wonderful running with our athletes in the 21.1km and 15km events, providing advice, support and inspiration as she moved effortlessly amongst them along the rail trail. I also wish to thank the Kongor School Support Group for selling sausages and refreshments to all after the race to continue their very worthwhile fundraising efforts towards building a school in South Sudan, as well as to the local schools for their support of the event, in memory of Lesley McKay. Lastly, to Debbie Rielly , Terra Plumb , and Vaughn Hendricks, whose hard work has made the event possible. To all involved, we would love to hear your feedback so we can improve on things for next time; thanks for your support! Keeping running, Louise.
The keeping kids on track fun run will take place on the 17th March 2012.
The 2012 ‘Keeping Kids On Track’ Fun Run has been created to give an awareness of the spectacular Rail Trail between Kilcunda and Wonthaggi, and the stunning features along its path within the Bass Coast Shire, including the pristine waters, the rugged coastline, the Desalination Plant and the Wind Towers.
The Bass Coast Triathlon Club in conjunction with other local groups have endeavoured to create an event which includes competitors of various ages and abilities by offering various distances, and we encourage participation from both locals and visitors alike.
It is a fundraising event in memory of Leslie McKay, a highly regarded mentor of youth and a fine advocate for reaching beyond our boundaries. Leslie herself was an avid runner, remembering her efforts in a recent Half Marathon and her passion to continue despite obstacles was an inspiration to an event with the emphasis on FUN!!
The ‘Keeping Kids On Track’ Fun Run is set to be the first of many for years to come. So let’s get this event out there, let’s make Leslie and many like her proud. Even if you are not a runner, it might be time to step outside your comfort zone, let’s have a crack and ‘Keep Kid’s On Track’!
