Last Saturday saw the first instalment of our Park Run series. A brisk but chilly morning greeted the runners and, with the sun shining through the clouds, we knew we were in for a cracking run.

Covering five kilometres of horse track, uneven ground, and river banks, Members were treated to a cross-country run similar to that of their high school days.

When the starter’s whistle went the Tattersalls runners set about their business, holding a quick and consistent pace, Trainer Damien Tancred and Member Andrew Giroux were the first to cross the finish line followed closely by Treasurer Mike Hanrahan, Gary Mason, Will Naughton, Run Club Captain Lester Fernandez and Grace Aulakh.

The highlight came after the run as the group settled in for a thawing and well-deserved cup of coffee, this helped highlight the community feel that Tattersalls’ Run Club is known for.

With our next instalment taking place at Sydney Park in a few weeks’ time, we are encouraging all those who enjoy going for a jog and a coffee to join us.
