Running for charity: Stepping up to the challenge

2020 ASICS Bridges fun run

On 6 September 2020, our Office Coordinator, Shae Bilston braved the threatening skies and windy conditions by participating in the 2020 Asics bridges fun run.

The ASICS bridges fun run is an annual event offering two distances: 5 km and 10 km. Shae challenged herself by entering in the 10 km race. She finished with a time of 1:11:05, shaving 7 minutes off her personal best.

The race is a circular route, starting in Elizabeth Quay, running along the Perth foreshore, over the causeway, along the South Perth foreshore, back over the river at the narrows, and finishing in Elizabeth Quay.

The ASICS bridges run is hosted by the WA Marathon Club and raised money for Beyond Blue.

“It was a hard race. It was really windy but it was lots of fun and I’m already looking forward to the next one.”
