For the first time ever, Crest entered a team into the Gold Coast Marathon for the Southern Cross University 10km run. Our team included 11 staff members from across all of the Crest businesses, including Peter Lettice, Kayleigh Willington, Michelle Mikkelson, Christie Purtle, Nicole Amaya, Belinda Shoesmith, Angela Pernazza, Alicia Gaylard, Paul Timms, Brett Shepheard and Louise Pillidge.
In the lead up to the event, the Crest team trained every Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime plus very early Sunday morning sessions in preparation for the event.
Unfortunately due to the three-day lockdown enforced by the Queensland Government to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, Events Management Queensland was left with no choice but to cancel the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon. Like everyone else we were devastated to find out it had been cancelled. However the Crest team decided to run their own event on Sunday 4th July at Darcy Doyle Park, Mudgeeraba (ensuring it was covid-safe of course).
Check out all the pictures from the training sessions and the Crest event on Sunday 4th July.
