To say I was thrilled to receive a call from Renee at Maroondah City Council inviting Generation Run to be the face of an article promoting their up-coming ‘Run Maroondah Fun Run Event’ in the council’s local paper is a massive understatement! Having only had the Gen Run Squad up and running for less than 2 months; the involvement, interest and enthusiasm we have received has been overwhelming and continues to grow as our current number of members draws ever closer to reaching the BIG 50!
On the day of the photo shoot, 10 of our members braved the chilly conditions to show off their Gen Run Squad training singlets and were rewarded with some Spring sunshine to keep them warm as they ran back and forth across the oval as the photographer snapped away looking for that elusive ‘keeper’! Having the morning off school was well worth it for Tom, Tilly and Josh, three of our Junior Squad members, who got to show off their running prowess, leading the way for the others.
Run Maroondah will be held on Sunday 27th September at the H.E Parker Reserve in Heathmont where runners will be able to post a quick time in the 5km or 10km events on a flat, fast course along the Dandy Creek Trail bike/walking track.
The Gen Run Squad will be there on the day, as entrants, supporters and promoters of the event. Come and visit us at our marquee and find out what makes this fast growing recreational running squad the hottest ticket in the Outer East!
