A record-breaking 270 people took part in the Byron2Bruns Beach Run in support of the Brunswick Surf Life Saving Club last weekend.
‘It was a really good event,’ said organiser Damian Hopkins. ‘We are slowly building momentum and getting new people in, but also we have plenty of returns’.
For the first time the event included a five-kilometre run, as well as the traditional 10km distance.
‘We really wanted more children to compete and a lot of them entered the 5km event, with two 17-year-olds winning,’ he said.
Andrew Kennedy and Sue Keough were the fastest man and woman over 10km.
Fastest male in the 5km run was Finley Neylan with Wyana Pictromale Sewell taking the female honours.
‘The greatly needed funds raised at this year’s event will go directly to purchasing new CPR mannequins for First Aid Training,’ Damian said.
