Get set for the Woodgate Beach fun run

Isis Town and Country - - SPORT -

THE starter’s gun is ready for the an­nual Woodgate Point to Park fun run event, or­gan­ised by the Isis Dis­trict State High School P&C.

Pres­i­dent San­dra Webb said the event, now into its fourth year, con­tin­ued to grow.

“Our run is well sup­ported by lo­cal busi­nesses and state and fed­eral politi­cians, and the SES of­fer their ser­vices to en­sure the beaches are closed to traf­fic,” Mrs Webb said.

This year, the run will be on Sun­day, Septem­ber 11, from 8am.

P&C sec­re­tary Kymm Cole said en­trants could par­tic­i­pate in a warm-up ses­sion with fit­ness leader Melinda Ric­cia­rdi.

“You can ei­ther run, walk or skip along the beau­ti­ful beach from the Banksia Park end to­ward North Shore and back,” Mrs Cole said.

“With dis­tances rang­ing from 2, 5, 8 and 10km, of all ages and fit­ness lev­els.”

Mrs Cole said the fun run was not a timed event and par­ents with chil­dren in prams were able to join in.

Mrs Webb said ev­ery en­trant would be in the run­ning for prizes, in­clud­ing $400 for the largest team en­try. Mem­ber for Bur­nett Stephen Bennett will be the of­fi­cial starter.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms can be found on­line at try­book­ing. com/201566 or reg­is­ter on the day from 7am. For more in­for­ma­tion, check out the Face­book page or phone Kymm Cole on 0427 262 510. THE Isis Dis­trict Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre is ex­cited to an­nounce that for the first time it will be able to of­fer the sport to all age groups.

Adults are in­vited to sign up for their first sea­son of com­pe­ti­tion as reg­is­tered ath­letes with Queens­land Ath­let­ics.

With the Lit­tle As sea­son be­gin­ning on Septem­ber 9, the adults di­vi­sion of the club will start shortly af­ter on Septem­ber 16.

Sim­i­lar to the ju­niors, the adults will fo­cus on im­prov­ing their own re­sults rather than com­par­isons be­tween ath­letes.

Deputy cen­tre man­ager Justin Lewis is ex­cited about the new devel­op­ments in the club.

Hav­ing grown up in the Lit­tle As club he is very keen to re­sume his par­tic­i­pa­tion in ath­let­ics.

“Not only is ath­let­ics a great phys­i­cal chal­lenge but the so­cial side of the sport is an added bonus,” Mr Lewis said.

The ju­nior train­ing squad are keen to see some of the par­ents out on the track.

Young dis­cus thrower Jack­son Re­hbein said he had plenty of fun at Lit­tle As and more peo­ple should have a go.

Join the Isis Dis­trict Lit­tle As Face­book group to stay up to date.
