Ath­letes will now be on time

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Sue Har­ris

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.

THANKS QGC: Fit­ness in­struc­tor Dave Holleran and Mun­dub­bera 7-A-Side cricket sec­re­tary Colleen Whe­lan thank QGC’s Vicki Ketchell for the North Bur­nett’s new Olympic stan­dard Seiko sports timer.
