Olympian Mel Schlanger and a talented team of runners from the Bond Elite Sports Program (BESP) have thrown down the gauntlet to challenge all-comers to join them - and try to beat them - in next month’s Twilight Relay Run here at Bond on Sunday 23 March at 4.00pm.
BESP’s team elite will consist of Sam Scaife (Runner), Caitlin Murdock (Runner), Sophie Walker (Runner) and Tom Hill (Triathlete) – and are definitely posing a formidable force to be reckoned with come race day.
“If you think you’re tough enough, you should register now and take them on,” said Mel.
“Team elite is the team to beat!” she said.
However if you’re more couch potato than Olympian – never fear, as long as you’re keen for a laugh and a jog, the Twilight Relay Run is still for you!
The 10 kilometre Twilight Relay is a fun timed relay race - the first of its kind in Queensland - and is open to teams of two (5km each) to four members (2.5km each).
So grab your colleagues, friends, family or classmates to sprint, jog, walk, skip, breakdance or Harlem shake your way around the stunning Bond University campus as twilight fades to dusk and the campus lights begin to twinkle.
In addition to having some fun (fancy dress/team themes & dress-ups are positively encouraged!), you will be helping to raise money and awareness for the following worthy charities:
- Autism Gold Coast
- Cure For Life Foundation
- Royal Flying Doctor Service
- Voiceless: The Animal Protection Institute
But wait….there’s more! Live bands, food and drink, entertainment and activities will also be on offer.
