Connecting Community, Uniting Clubs!

KKOT killy bridgekillyWell that is certainly what happened yesterday at the 5th annual Keeping Kids on Track Fun Run festival at Kilcunda.
Over 500 people participated in the various events along the picturesque rail trail overlooking the Bunurong coastline. Individuals, friends, families and clubs came from all over the place with one thing in common….to pass through that gigantic finish chute, with hands raised in the air, smiles from cheek to check (some grimacing from exhaustion) and a couple of spills and chunder but everyone made it. Well done!
Athletes competing in the 5k,10k,15 and 21.1k were timed by Tomato Timing, results were in immediately which allowed presentations to run smoothly…results are on the website.
Many thanks to our sponsors and supporters on the day;
MC Hammer move over! The soothing tones of MC Hume filled the air at the event, thankyou so much Angus Hume, you are funny, supportive and full of information.
