Run and swim your way to fitness and fun
The Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre's popular Live Lighter Dash & Splash biathlon series is back to challenge Broome residents and help them stay in shape over the wet season. Now entering its fourth season, the series will run from October 2014 to March 2015, with an event each month except January.
BRAC Centre Manager, Casey Zepnick, says each event involves run and swim legs over short and long courses, with categories for men, women, juniors and teams. "The new 2014/15 Live Lighter Dash & Splash series kicks off with the first event on Friday 17 October at 5pm," Mr Zepnick says.
"The long course, which is open to individuals and teams, is a 5km run followed by a 500m swim in the BRAC pool. The short course is a 2.5km run followed by a 250m swim, and is ideal for beginners, juniors, families and anyone just looking to challenge themselves."
