New Trail Running Sub-Committee needed

As we move towards a new running year, Cairns Road Runners is looking for members who are passionate about trail running. We want to form a new Trail Running Sub-Committee. In recent times, members have met as needed and enjoyed good food and cameraderie while discussing up and coming trail races. We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact Dave on trailrunning@roadrunners.org.au      as soon as possible. Thank you. David OBrien

YOUNG INSPIRATION

Connor Daniell came 4th at State Cross Country in July, then represented Qld at Nationals in August. Connor came 12th in the 3km, and the U11 Boys won Gold in the teams. Connor then backed it up by winning gold in the… 6 x 1500m Composite relay.

In June, Connor also represented Mother of Good Counsel school in the Qld State All Schools Championships in Brisbane, where he came 2nd with a time of 10min 18 sec for 3km. Connor won the Peninsula trials for 800m, but due to other commitments was not able to attend Brisbane for States. Smashing effort Connor and well done on behalf of CRR.

 

OUR JUNIORS ARE ON FIRE!

2014 David Todd Bursary Award Winner Cahn Butler-Channel has continued his busy training and competition schedule into the 2015 season with three state representations. In Track & Field, Cahn made the finals of both the 800m and 1500m, finishing with two top 10’s (7th and 10th) in the state, and a 7 sec PB in the 1500m; In Cross Country, Cahn finished 25th; and in Triathlon 11th. Mum thanks CRR for their continued support.

Young Chantelle Yelland made the 13 yrs Qld school track and field team recently. Chantelle won Gold in the 800m and Silver in the 1500m.

Montanna McAvoy came 1st in the 800m and 2nd in the1500m events at the recent state championships. Montanna is now heading to the Nationals in Adelaide on Dec 6 and 7 to compete in both the 800m and 1500m events.

Clio Ozanne-Jaques recently finished 3rd in QLD School States 1500m. By doing so, Clio gained selection for QLD U16 to compete at Nationals. Many factors have not forwarded Clio the chance to compete at the Nationals. From Clio’s family and coach – “many thanks for the races CRR have put one enabling Clio to be the best she can”.

CRR is proud of all our young juniors. Hopefully we will see these juniors and many others at the Rock Series on February 2015.
