Sydney Running Team take on the SMH Half Marathon


The Tuesday lunch time run group has been growing steadily with over half the team joining in and giving go. Each week we take a different route and vary the distance so allow individuals to choose how far they want to run. The momentum is driven by ‘give it a go’ attitude where team members who swore they’d never run, join in and inspire the rest of us. The few competitive ones in the group keep seeing the bar higher and motivate the team to see just how far we can go.

The challenge of completing the SMH Half Marathon for Beyond Blue charity was put out there and a surprising number of the team put their hand up. A few had to drop out with injuries but they encouraged the team to keep training.

On Sunday 21st May, an excited team of 5 completed the half marathon and are already looking at what race will be next.
