Athletes will now be on time
MUNDUBBERA is running on perfect time.
Working together is what won Mundubbera the Bush Spirit award last year.
And the quality is again on display for the benefit of the health and fitness of all of the North Burnett.
The local sporting community has been given a helping hand with a donation from QGC, which was used to purchase a Seiko sports timer.
Mundubbera Cricket Association 7-A-Side presented the timer to North Burnett Regional Council’s fitness volunteer, David Holleran.
The impressive clock has been made available for use throughout the region.
“The $5000 sports timer is Olympic quality and will be used all over the North Burnett Regional Council area,” cricket as- sociation secretary-treasurer Colleen Whelan said.
Mr Holleran put the timer to immediate use at the Resolution Run and said he was impressed by the new acquisition.
“People who are in training run and train by their times,” he said.
“You train yourself to run by a pace, say a four-minute kilometre, depending on what you are training for – fun runs, half marathons, marathons or ultras.
“Pacing is of the utmost importance to get you to your goal.
“The timing clock can print off the times and much more so it’s an excellent tool in any running event and any professional running event.
“If you are running laps, pacing yourself for each lap for the distance and time you wish to perform at, this clock will give you the visual each lap and you can adjust your pace accordingly.”
Thanks to QGC and the Mundubbera Cricket Association, fitness enthusiasts and competitors in sporting events throughout the North Burnett region will benefit from the use of the new high-tech sports timer.
