​Botanic to Bridge registrant races in

15 June 2017

Gladstone local, Matt Campbell, was hot off the starting blocks and was the first registrant for the 2017 Botanic to Bridge.

As a previous participant Matt got the lead with early access to the registrations database, and he didn’t mess around.

“This is my fourth year participating in the event, I love it. It is a great way to get together as a community,” Matt Campbell said.

Matt said the event was certainly no walk in the park but he loved the challenges the course provides.

“I find the hardest part of the track running up Goondoon Street, the steady incline,” he said.

“But when you reach the bottom and run over the bridge, knowing the finish line is close, that is the best.”

Matt will be among the thousands of participants for the 8k and 3km fun run on Sunday 20 August.

Registrations are now open with the Early Bird registrations closing this Sunday 18 June at 11.59am.

Funds raised from registrations are directed to local schools and the 2017 major community beneficiary, St Vincent de Pauls Society - Gladstone. 

Run along and register today!
