A great day in the forest – Autumn Bush Series event 1

24 February 2019

Thank you to Nick, Joe, Nathan and  the Victoria schools team for putting on a fantastic event today.

The sun shone and people stayed to chat, enjoy the atmosphere after their runs, and to see if they had won any prizes. For the first event of the series it was great to see such a large turnout with 149 entries – thank you to everyone for coming along and supporting our Victoria schools team fundraising.

This year, at every Autumn Bush Series event for people who have pre-entered there is a spot prize draw for the return of their entry fee (one adult entry fee). Our first winner is Helen Alexander.

There is also a major spot prize for the series for people who pre-enter 5 or more events for a STR8 compass.
