The first weekend of December saw a variety of racing for SWEATERS across the country. On Saturday Night Matt Dawson showed he was in fine form to bang out a great run in the pouring rain in the NSW 5000m Championships in a time of 16:15. At the Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim the girls were well represented by young Olivia Piazza and Kate Coburn. Dean Piazza finished on the podium in 3rd place in his Age Group with Adrian Kotzen just behind in 6th. Mike Hirner was also not far behind with a great swim in the 15 degree ocean. Then the big one that we have waited for with great anticipation as the “SWEATY CHICKS” headed down to Melbourne for the Carmen’s Womens Run. The girls raced in the 10km and Half Marathon events.
