Three Bridges Run 2022 Event Wrap Up

Nov 2, 2022

There was an incredible turnout for the 2022 Three Bridges Run on Sunday!

Runners were treated to sunshine and blue skies for the stunning river course. The atmosphere was buzzing at the Western Sydney University event centre as more than 1,000 runners lined up for registration.

It was wonderful to see the Run Beyond Project crew out in force with about 40 students from Canley Vale High School tackling the 9 Km course. A massive congratulations to those students who have been training in preparation from this as their goal race. We wish you all the best as you continue to run, have fun, learn and grow together under the guidance of the Run Beyond Project.

There were a few superstar parents in the 9 Km and 5 Km, racing with a pram, pushing their little ones the length of the course. We certainly don’t see that sight in our trail run races!

The 5 Km win was secured by jet runners, Brodie Wyborn for the Males and Kelly Ryu for the Female runners.

The 9 Km course saw Regan Burnett as the first Male runner home and Sonya Clarke the first Female runner back to the finish line.

The Half-Marathon course had a lot of first timers taking on the distance. Mens podium winners were 1st: Ryan Macdonell, 2nd: Aleksandr Bolshakov and 3rd: Craig Geeve. Female- 1st: Bennie Astridge, 2nd: Anna Watterson, and 3rd place: Joasia Zakrzewski.

The Marathon saw the male top 3 all finish with sub 3 hour times, Angus Pearson crossed the line first, followed by Statler Willand in second and Tadashi Oyama securing a comfortable third. Top females marathoners were Marisa Martin in first, Caitlin Larose second and Akiko Akashi third. View all the official race times and positions HERE.

A big shout out to the large number of volunteers who helped us run a smooth event for our participants. The red volunteer army was all over the Parramatta courses, helping at aid stations and road crossings for the city road run.

The mix of relief, pride and joy on runners faces as they crossed the finish line said it all. We love putting on these events, we love seeing runners push their limits and prove they can do it. We can’t wait to do it all again next year; bring on Three Bridges Run 2023!
