Event report: MetrO 1 Koondoola
Saturday, 11 November 2023
The 2023-24 MetrO Series commenced at Koondoola adjacent to the Bushlands which allowed competitors numerous route choices and provided a mix of limestone paths along with street running. Congratulations to the following winners, Long - Sten Classens and Kate Braid, Medium - Oliver Martin and Amy Dufty, and Short - Robert Greig and Michelle Martin.
As part of OWA’s initiative to increase social media presence the event was live streamed on Facebook for the first time: as of Sunday evening there had been 300 views! We thank those members who agreed to be interviewed. Look out next week for our roving camera operator at the High Wycombe event.
Thank you to Sue, Jack and Paul Dowling, Lois and Rob West, Nicole and Mike Sibbald, Rob Beattie and Simon Windsor for control collection and helping to pack the assembly area up. A very big thank you goes to Riley and Sharon McFarlane for organising the event.
