Nowra Athletics Club Report
6th July, 2009
The Nowra Athletic Club’s annual endurance race “The Shoalhaven King of the Mountain” was held on Sunday morning. Conditions were a little cool and runners were faced with a fairly stiff westerly headwind while making their way along Illaroo Road. As the morning progressed the wind dropped and made for almost perfect racing conditions.
Club runners featured prominently in the field of nearly 150 competitors and were well represented at the presentation afterwards. The first Nowra Athletic Club runners home were Sabina Hamaty and Damian Smith. Both received trophies and a prize generously donated by local sponsors Eyecare Plus Peter Rose Optometrists and Adidas.
Perry Strand and Scott Martin had fabulous runs and chased the leader pack throughout the event - both finished in the top 20. Local women Alison Stand, Karan Kenny and Angela Bond showed plenty of courage climbing up Mt Scanzi again all finishing yet another King of the Mountain.
Other runners with noteable performances included Greame Pepper, Bill Boughton, Steve McCullagh, Bill Stahlhut, Gerald Buckley and Rob Pickard.
All the individual successes of the day were only made possible by the combined efforts of a committed team of workers, helpers and friends of the Nowra Athletics Club. Thank you for your support and assistance in the lead up to the day and the day itself – another big win folks!
Big supporters of The Shoalhaven King of the Mountain included local businesses Nowra Toyota, Shoalhaven Spring Water, Kennedy’s Bus & Coaches and Eyecare Plus Peter Rose Optometrists. Invaluable assistance came from Cambewarra Public School, Kangaroo Valley Public School P&C, Shoalhaven Community Transport and St John’s Ambulance Service.
