Raceways - The Moreton Morrell Mad Dash

On Friday night a few members of the Raceways team made deals with the devil to keep the rain and floods away on Saturday morning. And whilst the wind presented some problems, the pact appeared to be worth it as the race went ahead and no one got swept away by floods!
Once more as well as being storm free this was also the biggest Mad Dash race we have ever had! To put this in perspective back in 2010 & 2011 we had barely 70 entrants this climbed in 2012 & 2013 to around 140. So when 250 of you turned up on Saturday it was a bit of a surprise!

The kids race kicked off at 9.15 with just under 30 kids ready to chase down Carmen and Joanna over a 1km race. Medals were rewarded to all and the results will be posted on our website very soon!

At 10am the 10km runners were set off by Joanna and made their way down the slightly wet and bumpy drive. Two minutes later the 20km runners were hot on their heels.
