Despite forecasts of rain this year’s Toohey Trail Run was the biggest yet with more than 1000 people taking part in the annual event hosted by Griffith Sport.
Griffith Sport Event Manager Jamie Hedge said it was wonderful to see so many people of all ages and abilities participate.
“We ended up having 1082 registrations which is a 10% increase on last year and raised over $6500 for Diabetes QLD,’’ she said.
Participants ran 5km, 10km or 21.1 routes from Griffith’s Nathan campus through Toohey Forest and back.
Brendan Press took out the 10km run in a time of 37.03, while Alison Ryan was the first woman home in a time of 46.07.
In the half marathon, Isaias Beyn was first in 1.19 while Clare Geraghty won the women’s in 1.31.
