South East Runners take to to the hills near Twilight Beach

Participants in the South East Runners’ event on Saturday, September 16 took to the hills near Twilight Beach, in beautiful warm conditions.

There was a choice of two, four or eight kilometre distances.

The two kilometre event was the province of the juniors, with Tamiel Ben-Dixon finishing first ahead of Joshua Maccan in the run, while Sam Jefferies opted for the two kilometre walk.

Pam Williams was the only taker and therefore the winner for the four kilometre run, though the four kilometre walk proved more popular with four competitors.

Clare Jefferies finished first, followed by Alison Reddyhough, then Howard Reddyhough and Lance Williams together for third place.

Zoe Maccan was the only runner in the eight kilometre event, and recorded a very slick time given the hills and warm weather.

Next weekend is the Cliffs Community Run which will be held on Sunday, September 24, with events of five kilometre, ten kilometre or a half-marathon.

Competitors can choose to run or walk the five or ten kilometre distances, while the half-marathon is a run event.

The start time is 8am for the half-marathon, and 9am for the other events.

Entries can be made online at Register Now by searching for Cliffs Community Fun Run.

Alternatively registrations can be made between 4-5pm on Saturday, September 23 at the Pier Hotel, or by turning up early on the day.

Entry is free for all competitors under 18.
