2006 Bellarine 'Rebel Sport' Four Bridges Fun Run

by Cathryn Hoare

A record field turned out for the annual Bellarine Athletics Inc 4 Bridges Fun Run, sponsored by Rebel Sport. The race was held over a scenic 5km course around the Barwon River trails, starting and finishing from the Fyansford Common. The race derives its name from the four bridges crossed during the event, including the Queens Park bridge.

At the start, the large field found a few people examining the carpark gravel a little more closely than they would have liked, but they were able to continue their race. Wesley Benson led the field home to win the Open Men division. Next over the line was the Veteran Men winner Charles El-Hage. Jo King led in the Open Women, with Fiona MacDonald winning the Veteran Women.

In the junior section, Ryan Smith beat most of the older open and veteran competitors to claim the boys race. Mikaila Hawken won the junior girls. Each division winner went home with a voucher generously donated by Rebel Sport. Several spot prizes were up for grabs, including vouchers for Rebel Sport and massage by Darren McQueen.
