Energy Fitness Big Weekend of Running 20th July 2014

It has been a HUGE weekend of running for the Energy Fitness crew!! I have been busy trying to keep up with you all!

Sunday was the Sutherland 2 Surf and also the Hunter Running Festival and Energy Fitness was extremely well represented at both events.

I’ll go through the Sutherland Shire’s local pet event first. Results are:

Fiona Kent 1:01:29, Nat O’Brien 46:39, Matt O’Brien 49:19, Tom Wright 54:36, Linda Knowles 58:26, Louise Dooley 59:46, Kim Grant 56:23, Kellie Ellis 57:27, Lisa Mottershead 59:39,  Bel Shoebridge 56:53, Colleen Redwin 50:23, Nicole Maguire 53:16, Karl Nusdorder 52:08, Kathy Hayward 56:53, Nadine Coady 55:21, Justine Catto 59:18.

Some brilliant runs in there and quite a few PB’s – very impressive!

My sincere apologies if I missed anyone from the Sutherland 2 Surf, please let me know if I did. It was hard as I was not there and there were a few last minute entries.

The Energy Fitness Walkers and Families were also on board with the Thomas’s, the Hummerstons, the Turnbulls, the Natoli’s, the Stephens, the Coles and the Telfers also making their way down the Kingsway, as well as Dundee Aguilar.

There were many great results on a very chilly day! Great work guys!



The next race on the agenda was the Hunter Running Festival. The course was very tough, much harder than your average Half and quite hilly, but spectacular! I was just so impressed with all their efforts. I was able to ride my bike alongside them all and they worked their backsides off I can assure you!


The results from the Hunter Running Festival are:

Jonothan Elcombe did his first (and last he says!) Marathon. He went into under prepared and injured but finished which was amazing in 5:07:42. Very impressive effort all things considered (injury, no training, and had been overseas for weeks).

The Half Marathoners were Fiona Ruxton 1:49:27, Joelle Lavender 1:49:58: (girls were very happy to slip in under 1:50), Liz Humphreys 1:57:39, Kathyrn Mayger 1:57:39, Barry Davidson 1:58:11, Shirlie Phillips 2:01:52, Paul Gallen 2:01:27, Kelly Newman 2:11:49, and  last but not least, Jo Williams 2:43:50 – amazing considering she has a heart condition and was told she could never run!

In the 10.3km we had Nicole Adamson in 55:33 and Phillip Filipou in 56:59. Quite a tough 10.3km! Well done!



This course and event was awesome and definitely going to appear on the Energy Fitness calendar again.

This whole weekend and your efforts has made me a very proud trainer.
