The Melbourne Cup had the rain so it was only fitting that the Broulee Runners had similar conditions.
Being of a lesser standard of race the rain continued before and during the run.
It is interesting that the only ones to appear were the thoroughbreds, who all tackled the 5 kilometres.
They ran through the wind, mud and ankle-deep water.
The star of the event was Lauren Evans, who improved her personal best by 52 seconds.
This is an outstanding performance under such adverse conditions.

$500 UP FOR GRABS FOR LOCAL SPORTS CLUBS
Good Sports is thrilled to announce $500 is up for grabs for community sports clubs passionate about creating the best summer sporting experience for their members and guests.
Clubs can go into the draw by signing up to the Alcohol and Drug Foundation’s free Good Sports program and describing in 50 words or less how their club makes summer great.
Good Sports is Australia’s largest preventative health initiative in community sport, providing more than 8500 Aussie clubs with free tools, resources and practical support to implement policies around alcohol management, tobacco and safe transport.
“Community sporting clubs are becoming healthier and more family-friendly through Good Sports. We invite more clubs to join the program, so they too can benefit,” said the Alcohol and Drug Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Erin Lalor.
A recent Good Sports commissioned survey of mainly sporting club volunteers, employees and members found that nearly all participants agreed clubs should be leaders and positive role models in the community and provide safe and inclusive environments.
And whilst the majority of those surveyed also agreed sporting clubs play an important role in creating healthy behaviours, 62% of volunteers surveyed agreed it was challenging finding the time to get everything done for their club.
“We know running a community sporting club is hard work. That’s why the Good Sports team is committed to guiding clubs through the Good Sports program, making it easier for already busy volunteers to implement,” Dr Lalor said.
Good Sports is proven to reduce risky drinking at participating clubs by 37% and has seen a reduction of alcohol-related accidents among Good Sports club members and supporters by 42%. Studies have also found that Good Sports has contributed to supporting positive and inclusive community sporting environments.
“All local clubs across Australia have the opportunity to be leaders in their communities by joining Good Sports. The free program is available for a variety of clubs, from those with liquor licenses, to clubs where alcohol is only consumed occasionally, to those that are completely alcohol and smoke-free,” Dr Erin Lalor said.
Clubs have until Friday November 16th 2018 to enter the Summer of Good Sports competition. Further information can be found at goodsports.com.au/win/
