Run Geelong Success

Run Geelong Success

With a 12km run, 6km run, 6km family walk and 1km kids dash, Run 4 Geelong always delivers a fun filled event.

Cameron Donald was encouraged by our Cross Country Coordinator Darren Riviere and staff member Brendan Nicholls to improve his fitness back in April by attending the weekly coaching/running sessions with ‘Coach Darren. Fast track seven months later and Cameron is now considered a rising star in middle distance events after his impressive 3rd place in the U18 Male 6km event during last Sunday’s Run Geelong event.

Over 3,900 participants register for the family friendly event each year and raises money for Barwon Health and associated hospitals.

Cameron also finished 34th overall which is a fantastic effort considering he has only been in the sport for the last six months.

Congratulations Cameron on your efforts and we wish you every success in the future.
