Bay to Bay

Not too much detail available yet and the official results are not in but we heard that Nicky Brouwer had a cracker of a race and came in at 2:23. Well done Nicky, what a great start to the year! Another Satori runner to watch this year is Mark Kemp. He ran the relay with Katrina and apparently he charged over the route in record time. Also, Jacqui Loydell ran her first 30km and did a great time, and I hear that Michael Massingham also blitzed the 15km!

Well done to all the Satori warriors who took on the challenge.

Year-end & Prize-giving PARTY!!!

Get your tickets from Steve at Time Trial from this Wednesday, don't miss out!!!

Landmarks & Congratulations!

It was rather cold and very overcast when we arrived to run the Landmarks on Sunday, but what a great turn out of Satori runners there was! It was ideal running conditions (but a bit windy in places) and I think that the cool conditions may have had something to do with the fact that so many people got PB's! (or perhaps its just cos they're awesome runners)

Luvuyo came 8th overall, and second in his age category... Lorna, Jacqui and Bianca all got PB's and Lyndall got a PB with her first sub 2 hour half marathon! Well done to everyone! (hope I haven't missed anyone out)

Next time we must have the gazebo there and celebrate in style ;)

Also this week I'd like to give belated congratulations for the First Ascent Forest 15 last Saturday.
Luvuyo came 2nd overall and Lee Ann Dawson was third woman overall and second in her age category! Brilliant!
