BEROWRA BUSH RUNNERS
puts the “FUN” back into
Fun Run!
Berowra Bush Runners opened a new 5km course on Father’s Day and
the response was fantastic. It was a true Berowra social day with mums,
dads and the kids all getting into the spirit of the Fun Run.
Berowra Bush Runners operates a 10km handicap race on the first Sunday of
every month, but now they have recognised that there is a need for a shorter
course so a 5km run has been implemented.
“Fathers Day was such a huge success with over 50 runners from Berowra
including new runners and kids as young as 8 years running the 5 and 10km
course,” said a local Runner. “It’s such a great way to encourage fitness in
the area and to meet new people in a fun environment. We finish off with a
breakfast provided by the club where everyone gets a chance to have a chat
and a laugh. It really was fabulous to see so many enthusiastic runners!”
The Berowra Bush Runners have been running since 1987 and are always
looking at new routes in the area and new ways to enjoy a run. Three out of
four weeks, BBRs run through the bush which offers something really different
almost like cross training.
