Santos’ athletic proficiency was on show in September, with more than 270 of the company’s finest taking part in the Adelaide City-Bay and the Bridge to Brisbane fun runs.
Perfect conditions welcomed more than 200 Santos participants in the recent Adelaide City-Bay Fun Run – a number surpassing the record set last year of 185 entrants.
The first Santos runners over the line in the men’s and women’s 12 kilometre runs were Andrew McCouaig (45:04) and Sarah Westmoreland (56:19). Tony Scholefield (28.01) was the first six kilometre men’s runner over the line and Mary Miles (31.36) the first woman.
Santos covered entry fees and hosted a breakfast for all Santos participants in conjunction with the Asthma SA team after the race.
At the annual Bridge to Brisbane fun run held earlier in the month, 70 Santos participants defied a howling westerly wind to post some good results.
The first Santos runners over the line in the men’s and women’s 10 kilometre runs were Piotr Puchala (43.34) and Dee Walsh (50:01). Bradley Clemments (26:48) was the first five kilometre men’s runner over the line, while Philippa Kassianos (31.54) the first woman.
Santos covered entry fees and hosted a breakfast for all Santos participants, including a joint event in Adelaide with community partner Asthma SA. Congratulations to everyone who took part.
Supporting the JDRF
Part of Santos’ participation has involved fundraising for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. So far the team has raised more than $400 for the JDRF – and there’s still time to put in.
