Hawks run Bridge to Brisbane


On Sunday the 1st of September, 33 students and 4 staff rose early to travel by bus to Brisbane for the annual Bridge to Brisbane fun run.

The group, made up of Year 12 students and their teachers Mr Martin, Mr Broadfoot, Mr McDonald and Miss Joss, were competing in the event as a part of the Senior Physical Education unit on training programs after working hard on the track for over six weeks in an endeavour to improve their initial times from the start of the term.

Again, marvellous weather welcomed the group and the students ran to their best effort with all of those who attended beating their personal best times from the term.

Special mention goes to Dale Smith who ran 18:00min for the 5km course, finishing 40th overall out of 10,000 runners and 3rd in his age category. The 'Harristown Hawks' team finished 4th overall in the teams event out of 1495 entered teams, a fantastic effort which we will hopefully eclipse in 2014.
