Bribie Beach Bash Results

2014-10-12 Bribie Beach Bash 823The day started about 4am so as to be prepared to welcome the 50k early starters. Once they were sent on their way about 30mins before the remaining field, I moved onto the beach measuring & installing all the required signage & water.

As the sun rose, one had to pinch oneself to ensure one was not dreaming. The glitter of the rising sun over the rippling blue water was a masterpiece picture in itself. Unless one was there to see the beautiful colours, one would struggle to describe it. The wide white sandy beach stretching out to meet the tranquil ripples of the clear blue ocean gently rolling in over the sand. While above a new day was coming to life with the glitter of the golden sunrise stretching from the horizon across the vast ocean to land. Was this paradise?

As I drove further up the beach campers were out attempting to catch fresh fish for brekkie. With a little wave or nod of the head as I drove past they appeared to accept our presence.

Reaching the furthest point 25k up the beach, a marker was placed indicating the turning point for the 50k competitors. It was at this point, I left Jeff to follow the last competitor back sweeping the course on his return. Two SES vehicles also met up. They divided the course in half attending to water stations & the needs of competitors. As the day moved on they also moved signage & water stations onto the dry sand as the tide turned inward. The local police came along too, being useful reminding campers returning home of the event. I even had the ranger catch me up to confirm some last minute paperwork. With all this happening, the event kept rolling on incident free thanks to the great helpers back at the start/finish area.

Sadly competitor numbers were down this year, but I am sure those who kindly gave their morning to support this MS fundraising event, enjoyed themselves.

There were some fast times in different events, visit results to view these. Some just came to help fundraise. No matter your reason for being there, it was greatly appreciated. All the details are not finalized yet as we are waiting on a reply on some costing figures which may take a little time, so I estimate a cheque to the amount of $900.00 will be deposited into MS Qld’s account. Without your entry & support they would get nothing, thanks very much.

As I write this 2014 Bribie Beach Bash Race Report, I wish to thank;

  • Linda, Brian & Darren for getting up so early & your hard work at the start/finish area
  • Ed for walking the beach to water competitors & observe
  • SES people on the beach for rehydrating the competitors, replenishing water stations & moving my signs as the incoming tide approached
  • Bribie Island police for your support & coming onto the beach reminding campers of the event
  • Jeff Chantler & your two children for being the event sweeper following the last competitor & removing all the signage & any rubbish from the beach
  • Timing Plus, Rick & Cath for another great job recording all competitors & helping with random names for prizes
  • Bribie Island Bowls Club for continuing to support this event
  • Dreamsport Photography for capturing those once in a lifetime memory shots
  • Qld Parks & Wildlife. For the help given from the staff in head office. All the Rangers on the Island for their help, assistance & advice in keeping this event going, thanks Graeme
  • My wife Betty for tolerating the worst sides of me during your time of pain & discomfort
  • And finally to all you the competitors, thank you again for supporting this charity fundraising event, raising money for those less fortunate to us, suffering Multiple Sclerosis

Hope to see you all in 2015, stay watching www.geoffsruns.com for future events & dates.

Train hard, run hard, but always stay safe.

2013-10-13 Bribie Beach Bash 636Another great Sunday morning was started with the arrival of the early starters for the 50k & Marathon. They were clocked off in a slightly dark atmosphere during a high outgoing tide. Unexpectedly a strong northerly was to meet them once on the beach.

As the tide lowered I attempted getting onto the beach but sadly did not quite make it before calling for a tow down. Then the trip to the start line to start making, measuring & setting up the water stops. We were hoping after purchasing new signs & attaching at the end of tall start pickets, no one would miss their turn around point.

It appeared to work as I did not hear of anyone over shooting their point.

As I continued setting out the turn markers, other competitors were arriving for their events, so they progressively started as programmed. Everything appeared great other than that northerly wind, great returning with it behind you though.

As the tide reduced, the competitors increased, along with the vehicles enjoying the sun on a great low tide. My two patrol vehicles worked well together keeping the water stations replenished along with anyone asking for a top up. They also helped notifying motorists of the event. It seemed a good relationship.

It now came time for me exit the beach which I finally managed after my first failing attempt.

On returning to the start/finish area, I was first surprised at the amount of vehicles parked. Then as I approached the recovery area, all I saw was a continuous flow of people crossing the finishing mats following each other to the fruit. As quickly Kerrie cut it a hand or two took it.

My wife Betty worked on cooking the sausages, which did not appeal to a lot this year, while Adam made the fresh coffee. Yet these two combined did not match the popularity of fresh fruit.

I would like to praise different runners & walkers for their great effort on the day but there are so many I would surely miss some and then feel bad. So to all who took part thank you. To those whose times were bettered this year, well done.

I know we had extra on the day, thanks for making that last minute effort. I understand there was a total of 259 entrants which I think was the best or very close to it. As for funds raised, still paying bills so when the final figure is known it will be displayed on all sites. As will be a full list of results.

I hope everyone enjoyed the event, if so please tell your family & friends so we can see you in 2014. If any disputes, please address them to me.

We all work hard to bring this event to Woorim. Through this event we have been to meet & talk with local businesses & residents who I know favor this event for it is on their side of town. Thanks to you the supporters who are polite & friendly.

So after a great event along the foreshore of Woorim Beach, the packing up started.

There are many to thank for their contribution towards & during this event so I would really like to start at the top by personally thanking my wife Betty & our very dear friends Kerrie, Paul & Des.

The day started with the rising of a beautiful red sun filled with energy. The tide was still slowly reducing but sadly a strong north-easterly head wind was to be in the face of all the competitors on their way out. Returning was far easier, being pushed.

 A couple of 50k competitors got away 30 minutes earlier then the full pack which was around sunrise. Apart from the head wind it was a nice day. Another problem with the north-easterly wind was that it pushed the incoming tide in far quicker than predicted, forcing competitors into the softer sand or to wade through the rippling water’s edge.

Sadly some competitors missed out on water while we attended other stations at opposite ends. We apologise for that, it will not happen again. Plans to overcome that are already in motion.

The following events got away as programmed with large numbers attending most. The timing chips proved a success & very efficient considering the volume of competitors. Thanks guys. Good feedback has been received about your work; well done! All the results can be seen on line now.

There are also some photos online.

Presentations were slow and many had moved on sadly. But with the sausage sizzle & coffee man keeping the remaining ones entertained the presentations were given out along with many random prizes. The golf voucher was taken by a young gentleman for his boss who loves golf. Guess he will be popular with the boss for some time ahead!

Other great prizes donated from local businesses were distributed, as was the Oldest Competitor trophy, going to Graham Long who certainly did not look his age. This running must really help in keeping that younger appearance.

Apart from commenting on some great runs from super fit competitors, which will all be displayed in the results, I have no more to add other than a big big “Thank You” to each & every one of you for supporting this event. As you know your morning was given up to raise funds for MS Qld. When all is finalized, money raised will be displayed.

Thank you:

Without great support, a great event cannot be held catering for you the competitor. Please join with me by supporting & thanking the above who contributed to this the “2012 Bribie Beach Bash”.

I also want to thank my wife Betty for her suggestions, support & withstanding my down times, and our little group of strong willing workers.

Thank you competitors, hope to see you all again in 2013.
