TEN-year-old Rhythm An­beek amazed or­gan­is­ers when he stopped the clock at 23m 33s while tak­ing part in the North Bur­nett Run­ning Clinic’s first 5km run at Mun­dub­bera last week.

David Holleran runs the clinic as part of the fit­ness pro­gram un­der the aus­pices of North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil within the Healthy Bur­nett Pro­gram.

Last Satur­day the sec­ond run in the se­ries of six 5km run or walk race clin­ics was held at Bin­jour and again at­tracted par­tic­i­pants from both Gayn­dah and Mun­dub­bera.

“I was amazed by Rhythm’s time in the first run,” Mr Holleran said. “He’d only been train­ing for two weeks and that was his first 5km run.”

In his sec­ond run Rhythm placed sec­ond be­hind Lau­ren Spar­row with Monique Terry third.

The first three place-get­ters in the walk­ers were: San­dra McCarthy, Jan New­man and Karen El­saes­sor.

Many per­sonal best times are be­ing recorded.

Th­ese clin­ics are open to all and com­peti­tors gain points for their place and the more events they par­tic­i­pate in.

To par­tic­i­pate in th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties, par­tic­i­pants must be a cur­rent mem­ber of the Mun­dub­bera Gym.

Par­tic­i­pants can be­come an as­so­ciate gym mem­ber for just $55 a year.
