    NSW Long Course Country Champs

    After several years of taking hopes to the slopes of Nowra, the Kembla Joggers hosted this years Championships at Brownsville. After heavy rain in the lead up, the decision to proceed occurred in the 24 hours prior, and with it came mud-and lots of it!

    RBH Athletes, both individually and in teams, performed very well. The pick of the individual and team efforts included:

    -Ben Moreau, a resounding Open Men's Champion, his second title in 3 years, going one better than 2014, and leading the Open Men's team to victory (with Jeremy Roff, Eddie Vining and Patrick Elliott)

    -Nic Cope, first in the 45+ Men and an impressive overall 11th in the Open category, anchoring a 45+ Men's team to Bronze (with Mana Silvaraj, Patrick O'Reilly and Peter Spehr)

    -Manu Sivaraj, first in the 50+ Men

    -Gold for the 35-44 Women's team (Cecily Butler, Gemma Jenkins, Heidi Hunt and Narelle Grayson)

    -Amy Harding-Delooze, second in the U/18 Women's event, leading the U/18 Women's team to Gold (with Georgia Evans, Lily Harding-Delooze and Manon Wilson)

    -Bailey Habler, new to RBH, second in the U/12 Boy's

    -Audrey Amiya-Hall, 4th in the Open Women's event, leading the Open team to Silver
    (with Nikki Lesberg, Julianne Broberg and Nicola Harris)

    -Drew Fryer, 4th in the U/16 Men

    -Bronze for the U/18 Men's team (Kurt Fryer, Zachary Facioni, Daniel Hazan and Ryan Beetson).

    Looking forward now to more great team efforts at the upcoming NSW Road Relays.
