A word from Chris Armstrong
Well done to everyone who participated in the Shepparton running festival, both as runners and/or volunteers. There were many PB’s captured, some with a best time, some with a distance and some with both. Full credit to you all for the effort in the lead up and on the day, it was great seeing you all out on course in the purple and gold. – Chris
The experience from SRC members out on the track.
By Sam Daniel
I ran the 10 k on Sunday with the hope of getting a PB of around the 49 minute mark. The cold must have helped, because I finished with a time of 47.53. It was great seeing everyone on the track too, and passing along a few words of encouragement.
By Grant Hicks
I did the marathon at SRF and loved the chance to take it easy and soak up the atmosphere. Plenty of high fives and support from so many wonderful volunteers and local legends! Danny Selva and I ran together for the first 25km. Congrats to all involved. Particulary the first timers!
By Matt Ryan
My second marathon for 2017. Had a great start. Kept a consistent pace. Was loving all the support from marshals and fellow runners of all events. Would have loved to have finished, but this wasn’t the event. Awesome effort to everyone I blocked, from runners to volunteers.
By Jarrod Minogue
Was a great start (regardless of icy downpour) for the 10km. Being 3rd in the 10km was a great thrill and a pleasure to see all the new SRC tops getting around. Also fantastic to run a pb of 38.00 minutes. An awesome event.
By Norah Armstrong
I did the 10km with lots of SRC members. AJ had the tunes pumping just after the caravan park. Settled in nicely with plenty high fives along the way. Got to the turn around and felt good. Pushed it home and gave Seb a wave on the way passed. Finished with a PB which was a huge surprise as I was just concentrating on effort. Thanks everyone for your support out there. Congrats to Matt Ryan Rob Ryan, Danny Selva, Chris Nicholson Jason Hunter Grant Hicks Kathy Fuller & Chris
By Natalie Hicks
After a fair stint off some distance running, I was trepiditious about running the 21km. Was feeling great about 8km in but after that, it was a real struggle. It was the friendly encouragement at all the stations and running past all Shepp runners with high fives that got me through to the end. Shepp volunteers were outstanding. Bunch of legends. Disappointing time for me but room for improvement.
By Tara Callingham
I went too hard getting a PB at park run so started the 5km with sore legs…however I was pretty pleased to finish sub 30 which was a far off dream not too long ago! I had a great time running along… Loads of friendly faces and support, with the SRC singlets easy to spot.
By Chris Nicholson
My first crack at the 42.2kms was a real mixed bag. Going into it refusing to give into a head cold was probably an omen. The first 30kms were great then both my hamstrings cramped. The last 12kms was a mixture of a slow jog and walk as the right hamstring continued to spasm. Overall I stilled enjoyed the experience and now I have a very beatable PB!
What others said about us and the event.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO FILL OUT THE MONKEY SURVEY.
The Greater Shepparton City Council requires the event to ask participants to complete a short survey about their time in the region. This survey provides important information for our regional city that helps council and their economic development and tourism arm – Shepparton Show Me – to plan for the future needs of the community.
Below is a link to the survey and we would be grateful if you could please complete this by Friday 8 September 2017.
The weather report by Chris Nicholson
No wonder we had the shakes when we finished yesterday. Check out the “Feels like” (second figure/third column) temperature for Shepparton yesterday. I’m guessing it was even colder where we were with the wind coming off the lake.
