The picturesque scenery of the Macedon Ranges’ inspired a great rollup of competitors and volunteers to this year’s Run the Rock with about 2200 participants competing on the day.
All fitness levels were catered for in the run which offered a choice of 5km, 13.5km and the 22km half-marathon events.
The 5km event attracted 22 GemLife Woodend participants with among our residents, saw John Eckel come 1st, Jim Brooks 2nd and Susan Doyle 3rd.
A beautiful autumn day greeted participants in the GemLife-sponsored event, which was hailed a big success by everyone who took part.
Thank you to our amazing band of volunteers for all their hard work on the day, especially Shane and Susan Doyle, and John Burns, who put in the hard yards in the registration tent.
