Late news of the O'keefe race

As regular readers will realise I have been delving into recent TrailRider history and Cara Smith, Disability Inclusion Officer at Bendigo City and Loddon Shire, has been kind enough to send me some juicy snippets about April's O'keefe Rail Trail Race in which three TrailRiders took part.

The effort by locals Dan O’Bree and Travis Edwards in assisting young Marney Lamb (living with cerebal palsy) in the ‘trail rider’ in  the 42.195 km marathon event was remarkable. Green added, “this displayed great courage and community spirit. This community spirit shone through in other volunteer assisted activities throughout the day.”

Two all abilities teams also participated in the Ekiden Relay providing the opportunity for Jika Knight and Matt Creer to be part of the event.  They were assisted by their families and teammates.

The Bendigo Advertiser also wrote about Jika preparing for the race here and you can Like the Rail Trail on Facebook below if you like (!)
