What a successful start to our winter season today. We missed a few of the stalwarts from last year but no doubt they will be back over the next few weeks, right Stacey Hebbard? We had a great turnout of current members and a new bunch of runners and walkers to swell our ranks. Standing room only in the club rooms I tell you! The medium pack had a good run led out by Kerry Rowley who took us on a tiki tour of some interesting tracks and sights. Who knew there were two caversham tunnels? Nice to meet up with Sophanna Parsons finally, who enjoyed her first run with us and will be back for more.
"I really enjoyed my first run today. Thanks for making me feel so welcome!!!" Sophanna Parsons
"I ran with them today. I was rubbish, and they really looked out for me and encouraged me. A great bunch" Ray O'Brien
New Zealand and Otago Track Champion and fellow Caversham Clubmember Ben Anderson pays tribute to "retiring" Ron Cain (QSM)
Mr Ron Cain (QSM)
surveys the track for the last time before "retirement" as an
official at the Caledonian. Mr Cain has long been an integral part
of the athletics and harriers scene in the south. Whether giving
supporters a bollocking for cheering from inside the track fence,
or offering sound advice on technique, Ron has always had something
to offer to the users of the track. So Ron, for being a part of the
Dunedin running community since before the abacus was invented,
It's probable that Ron won't be able to see this, as he still believes in smoke signals and messenger pigeons - if you see him around, say thanks
Late News : Ben Anderson recently competed in the Australian Track and Field Championships in Brisbane. Ben ran in the final of the 800m finishing in 7th place and set a PB of 1m49.3sec. A great result.
