Hi my name is Monique and I did the 4km Junior Dash at the Gold Coast airport marathon 2014. The amount of support and cheering we had during the run was incredible and the water station was packed with volunteers. The volunteers were kind and encouraging.
Two things I wasn’t a fan of were being crushed at the start of the race and the weather which was a little hot I had a bit of heat stroke, but I still finished the race and everything else was great.
Here are the results for Striders:
Harrison Turner (winner of the 2km junior dash with the extraordinary time of) 6:55
Blake Turner (1st 7-8 yr old category) 7:34
Gabby Martin (6th female overall and 4th in her category) 7:42
Jani Martin 10:23
Harrison Bushell 10:47
(The winning time of the 4km dash finished in an amazing 13 mins 15 sec)
Jake Martin 18:25
Riley Bushell 19:41
What great efforts from all of the kids in Striders .
