Mates 4 Mates: Bondi 10km Soft Sand Run

We made it, 10k in soft sand, it took me 1 hr & 21 minutes. I forgot to mention we were carrying army pack’s…..see photo. Together Simon & I raised over $4k. Thanks to everyone who supported us, the feedback was very positive for the cause & great to hear how much this charity means to so many. For those who haven’t donated & want to there is still time.

Thanks again, 2017 talk has already begun.

I am raising money for the Mates 4 Mates Foundation. Mates4Mates supports current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members (and their families) who have physical or psychological wounds, injuries or illnesses as a result of their service. I will be running this Sunday the 22nd of May in a 10km soft sand event at Bondi. I have told by one mate who has completed both the Oxfam 100km event & the 10km soft sand that he’d rather walk the 100km. I hope he is wrong. Please see the link below to my fund raising page.
