December is busy month at SRC with 4 events on the calendar, here is what is coming up and what you need to do to be a part of it.

Saturday December 8th from 4pm at Shepparton Athletics track will be our teams event where we say thank you to our sponsors who have helped put funds towards our uniform this year. We will be running events for 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1600m and then at the end of the night we will take requests for anything else you’d like to have a go at. A schedule of events will be posted this weekend on the facebook page so please keep an eye out for that. If you could also wear something on the night that is either yellow, blue, red or green that would be great as we would like to take some photos in our sponsor colours, and hopefully our latest uniform order will be ready to show off on the night.

Sunday December 16th from 6am at The Woolshed at Emerald Bank, Kialla Kathy Fuller and Narelle Pell will be running their 12th marathon for the year for their #voice4kidz campaign, here is an opportunity to run with and support these amazing women for such a worthy cause. There will be a stack of other things on to celebrate as well with a BBQ, coffee, Mr Sheppy, a jumping castle and music there on the day as well so should be an awesome atmosphere. Even if you can’t run, it’d be great to cheer Kathy and Narelle as they cross the finish line which should be between 10am and 10:30am.

Tuesday December 18th from 6pm at Shepparton Athletics Track will be our next 3000m graded races. It was a huge success last time with 75 registrations and 58 competing on the night. Please register ASAP to assist Chris with being able to put the grading together so start lists can be published as early as possible. We currently have 17 registered, once we have at least 40 then start lists can be created and put up. The link to register is here and takes 30 seconds to do –


“The Michigan” A workout so nice they only named it once!


Sunday December 23rd from 8am at Princess Park – experience “The Michigan” What is “The Michigan” you ask, have a read of this – We will be giving our own version of “The Michigan” a go and will follow it up with a social bbq afterwards – come along to watch, participate if you’re brave enough or just enjoy each others company before Christmas and have a cheeky sausage or 7. You can even decide if onions go on top or beneath your sausage!


Training over Christmas and New Year – There will be no SRC training on Christmas Day or New Years Day as they fall on a Tuesday, however normal training will be on Thursday December 27th and Thursday January 3rd.


Hi parkrunners,
Just a reminder to make sure that we obey the local parking laws when attending parkrun on a saturday morning. There is usually ample parking in the Pizza Hut carpark across the road, and in other designated parking areas. We need to make sure that we maintain safe conditions for all users of the area, and this includes road users.

Just a reminder that 16 days of activism is on next week in conjunction with parkrun. parkrun is free, but please remember that if you aren’t already registered as a parkrun participant you need to register on the website so that you can get a result.

Track 3000 graded

I just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts last Tuesday night in assisting to make sure everything went smoothly and created an environment that allowed everyone to participate and have fun.

It’s a credit to SRC as a team and to the community that we have built,that we can essentially put on a training night at the track that has some 3000m races that people are willing to travel to take part in,  we donated a stack of time and energy in having a night that punched far above it’s weight in terms of quality and fun.

We had runners come across from Blighty, Echuca, Wangaratta, Cobram, Yarrawonga and obviously our core group which is closer to home and it wasn’t in search of prize money or anything like that,  last Tuesday night I think is something we should all be proud of. If you look at it, we were able to provide a timer clock for all athletes to see what splits they were running if they wanted, professional quality photos, live stream video of the last 2-3 laps of each race and official results put together and easily able to be posted the same night for the 55+ people who ran on the night, not to mention how good the crowd atmosphere was a runner, it was great to see all our members chatting to those new faces from out of town and instantly making them all feel welcome, awesome stuff!

Thanks for all that you do,


The first 3000m event was a big success and the good news is it’s all happening again in December on Tuesday the 18th. Everyone is welcome to come along and participate. Please complete the google docs form –
and we will be able to seed you into a race with runners of comparable ability. If numbers are large we will have an E grade and shuffle the times slightly to accommodate.

Much more than a barcode

As most of you know, I believe parkrun is the best thing ever invented. Over 14 years it has grown and spread into 20 countries. You can even find it in some jails and some Dr are even starting to recommend it to help some of their patients. The first Parkrun event to launch was the Bushy Parkrun, which was founded by Paul Sinton-Hewitt in 2004. It grew into a network of similar events called the UK Time Trials, before adopting the name Parkrun in 2008 and expanding into other countries.

Their are many articles online about the benefits of participating in parkrun.  One such article is here.  Shepparton parkrun was started by Allan Connelly in January 2014. In that time we have had 248 events in Shepparton. We are averaging 120 runners per week. The average time for someone to complete Shepparton parkrun is 30:18. Total hours run: 1Years 264Days 5Hrs 13Min 26Secs.

As you know Sue Olley clocked up her 250th parkrun a few weeks ago. In typical benevolent Sue Olley style, she didn’t know what all the fuss was about and decided to share the milestone with Alan Connelly.

Allan Connelly stats


Sue Olley’s stats

Interesting stat, Shepparton parkrun had 7 Peel Club members present including 5 regular Shepparton parkrunners. How awesome is that? A peel club member is someone who has ran a parkrun in every state and territory in Australia. Named after Brendan Peel.

Cathedrals Challenge – a true trail running experience.

A visit to the Cathedral Ranges State Park led Race Director, Sean Greenhill on what he considered a fantastic trail running adventure. Subsequently, maps were poured over and soon enough a race course was developed that would provide trail runners with an adventure on the trails they would not forget…

With a half marathon and a 10km event, this is a great day out for everyone in a very unique and beautiful part of Victoria! The Jawbone Peak Half Marathon at the Cathedrals Challenge offers competitors the opportunity to explore some spectacular and unique terrain in the Cathedral Range State Park.

Shepparton Christmas Track Carnival


As you may be aware we welcome back the Shepparton Christmas Track Carnival coming up on Wednesday 28th December after not running the event last year. Shepparton will host one of four days of the State Track Christmas Carnivals with the events starting at Wangaratta 27th December, Shepparton 28th December and two days in Bendigo on the 29th and 30th December. Riders will come from across Australia to contest this prestigious carnival. We are looking for locals to assist with the running of the event either in the afternoon or evening on a 2-hour rotation. The main areas needing manning will be the gate and canteen. As you can appreciate these events cannot run on their own hence we are asking for assistance through our locals. If you are interested in helping out, please let me know which 2-hour block best suits you. As part of helping you will be supplied free entry and a meal and maybe able to rustle up a cold alcoholic beverage too for your services. Any help is appreciated. Please let me know if you have any queries. Cheers Nadine Edwards Public Relations Officer Shepparton Cycling Club

Let’s see how many people we can have registered in the next 48 hours,  based on our last handicap i’m expecting around 50+, so let’s see who’s keen to come and run a 3km track PB.

Presentation report 2018

  • by Melanie McAuliffe

The 2019 Shepparton Runners Club Presentation Night was this year held at the WB Hunter Pavilion on Saturday the 10th of November. It was a hugely successful night that saw attendance reach 75, far exceeding our expectations and smashing last years total of 45. The atmosphere was relaxed (for most of us) and it warmed my heart to see the kids running around playing and the adults enjoying a beverage and laugh remembering the year that was. It was also our honour to have 3 life members attending, Brian Brett, Geoff Wilson and Steve Trevaskis.

This year we were able to offer a bit more of an insight into the History of the Awards and also present the winners with both their award and the Club Award (PS we need the club award back so we can have them engraved J and display them PLEASE)

The night was once again MC’d by the talented Mat Ryan (with some help by daughter Charlie) and Awards and Speeches were presented by our President Steve Ayton, Vice President Seb Mangianeli and Coach Chris Armstrong. This year’s worthy Recipients were:

Male Club Champion – Jason Hunter – Backing up last year’s win.

Female Club Champion – Nora Armstrong

Junior Club Champion – Cadel Nicholson – Another superstar who went back to back.

Peter Cody Memorial Award – Lydia Monk

Tom O’Halloran Veteran Memorial Award – Steve Monk

Handicap Winner Award – Norah Armstrong

Most Improved – Lydia Monk

Club Person of the Year – Melanie McAuliffe (I’m still in shock)

Once again we handed out some light hearted awards and 4 lucky door prizes these were presented by Tara and Sam Daniels, Steve Trevaskis, Julz Mulcahy and Justine Ryan. We also thought we needed clarify story of the Most Unimproved Award (as it may have come across a little harsh LOL). At this years Running Festival, Sam Daniels ran his Half Marathon in an impressive 1 hour and 51 minutes (a PB for him), however……. unfortunately for Sam but to the delight of wife Tara his timing chip didn’t register when he crossed the line, it registered later in the day giving him an official time of 3 hours and 12 minutes. Hence the award.

My night was obviously and unexpectedly made even more special when I was named the Club Person of the Year. It is an absolute honour to receive the award and I feel privileged to receive an award that has been presented to amazing past and present members including Life Members Lyne and Brian Gawne, Una Cody, Tom O’Halloran, Steve Trevaskis and current members Andrew and Sue Olley, Trevor Dainton, Mat Ryan and Nadine Edwards.

Unfortunately in my shocked state I forgot to thank the AMAZING Social Committee. Justine, Julz, Tara, Mat, Steve and Sam, none of these events would have been possible without all of their time, support, ideas, help, feedback and WINE.  The words Social Committee fail to describe our team, you are not only amazing people but my wonderful friends and running family. xoxo

So as another year ends we now begin planning the many events that will help us Celebrate our 40th Anniversary in 2019. So keep an eye on the newsletter and Facebook,  as will be keeping you all up to date on all of the events for 2019 via these forms and remember book the babysitter for the 13th of July 2019.


Ever dreamed about doing two parkruns in one day? Now is your chance. We will be having an extra event on New Years Day at 7.30am. Then you can make your way to Shepparton parkrun for their start at 9.30am. Both events will be timed and will count towards your tally. Or may wish to volunteer at one and run/walk the other. This is our chance to get some extra parkrunning done. There is absolutely no better way than to see the new year in with friends and family while participating in parkrun at Cobram.

Even though Mel was supported by several enthusiastic members, she went over and above with the massive effort she put in.

SRC 2018 Presentation and Awards Dinner

Facebook event page

With presentation night coming up on Saturday, it’ll be a great night to reflect on the year and enjoy each other’s company. What have been your highlights for yourself or someone else this year?

Recently I was chatting with Nadine about how far the club has come in the last 2 years. 2 years ago Presentation night was at the clubrooms and attendance was in the twenties. We were engaged in regular meetings with Tim Crosby from Athletics Victoria on how to rebuild the club.

We took his advice and now we have a new website, new logos, new running tops and apparel, and we also have a coach. Coach Chris has been one of the biggest factors for improving the direction of the club. Two years ago 20 runners turning up to a handicap would have been considered good. Last week we had 52 turn up to the 800 mtr handicap at the athletics track.

A lot of credit for the turn around in the last two years must also go to Nadine Edwards, Trevor Dainton, Mathieu Ryan, Norah Armstrong & Melanie McAuliffe. All working away to create a better club and running environment.

On the last count for presentation night 2018 our numbers were 69 in total. 45 adults. 17 school aged and 7 that are 5 y.o. and under.

Upcoming events and races

With the race list being updated regularly remember to keep checking the SRC facebook events page for all future races and events.

Four Vines Running Festival

Feeling stoked after being 2nd place female and 1st place veteran female in today’s 5km event at the inaugural Four Vines Running Festival. Great to share today with my Shepparton Runners Club buddies

Race report by Sam Daniel.

We arrived nice and early at the historic Tahbilk winery for the 4 Vines Fun Run last Sunday. Checked in, picked up my bibs, and went to check the conditions of the porta-loos. Just before the 10k race briefing, there was an announcement concerning a 10 minute delay, something to do with a track blockage, maybe a snake. I enquired if the 5k race would follow suit in the delay, which I was also running, with a positive reply. Off we ran at the starting line, through the extensive vineyards and around the very pretty wetlands, tracks, bridges and a bit of bush. Having only an hour between the two start times, I passed through the 10k mark at 51.33, but the trail still had another 800 metres to run. A quick glass of prosecco at the finish line, a change of tee shirt (and bib), and off onto the 5 k run with Tara and Mirium. We took it gentle and enjoyed the scenery, what an enjoyable day for a run (or two).

L to R Mairead MacDougall 21 km 2:44:15. Sam Daniel 10 km 54:50  & 5 km 43:58. Steven Trevaskis 10 km 1:13:11. Christina Bassani 1:09:48 Nadine Edwards 5 km 25:58. Tara Daniel 5 km 43:58

NOTE – All distances were long by up to 800 mtrs for the 10 km run.

On this course, it would be difficult to create a course that finished at a km mark. This was a fantastic event for a first effort. They had a few issues that need addressing. But once ironed out, this could be one of the best regional running festivals in Victoria. If you want to try something different from bitumen but don’t want to leap into trails, this could be the event for you. Unbelievably picturesque entrance and race compound. We were greeted with sunshine filtering through the trees on the lawn area where we had lunch after our run through the winery.
