Stromlo Running Festival
Thanks for coming, we hope you enjoyed it!
It has now been over a fortnight since the 2014 STROMLO Running Festival and hopefully everyone has now recovered and is looking forward to the next event on their running calendars. The weather certainly provided an additional challenge to all runners and we appreciate those who made the effort to come out and compete in such testing conditions.
Final results are now up on the website and we hope that these are now all correct as the rain did provide havoc with our timing system. All prizes winners for the top 3 places in the age-sex adjusted categories will have their prizes delivered in the coming days.
Images from the event have been uploaded onto the STROMLO Running Festival Facebook page. These images are provided to you free of charge, so please go in and tag yourself (or anyone you know) in these images as this is one of the best ways you can help us promote the event.
Through your generosity, the event raised over $15,000 in funds for The Indigenous Marathon Project and a special mention to The Commonwealth Ombudsman who personally raised $13,000 to support this very worthy cause.
We have received plenty of positive feedback from the event, which is always greatly appreciated. Thanks also for your suggestions for improvements and for next year we are looking to streamline our registration process, add some additional female toilets and improve our course marking so that they are completely wind and rain proof.
I would like to personally thank our sponsors/supporters, The ACT Government, Mizuno, Hammer Nutrition, and The Canberra Times whose involvement is greatly appreciated. Thanks also needs to be extended to those who came out to work at the event as the event would not occur without your assistance.
Rob de Castella and I hope you enjoyed your STROMLO Running experience in 2014 and that you will tell your friends about our great event on the 22nd of November 2015. In 2015 there will be 400 spots for both the 30km and 10km events and only 200 spots available for the very challenging 50km event. Entries will open online on the 1st of August, 2015.
