Afterglow Twilight Trail Run

Afterglow-run-e1480886864384_390x295_acf_croppedCongratulations to Isabella Bufé, Chloe Joubert, Ava Lansell and Isabella Mangano who participated in the Afterglow Twilight Trail Run on the Victoria Surf Coast over the weekend. From all reports this was a gruelling 12km trial run over sand dunes and through the shrub, guided only by head torch.

This was the second year the girls have participated in the event, demonstrating their enjoyment of running and their ability to tackle a tough challenge. The girls all finished within the top 10 of their age category, with Isabella and Chloe placing second and third respectively in a time of 1:09:39 – over 10 minutes faster than the previous year!

Well done girls!
